Expansion plans are ever at the front of the retail industry, and BJ’s Wholesale Club is the latest retailer to take part. Recently, the company announced it will be increasing its geographic footprint throughout the Eastern United States with six new clubs within the fiscal year, each one offering consumers convenience and an extensive selection of fresh food.
“We’ve made great progress accelerating the pace of our new club openings in the last few years, and we’re looking forward to opening six new locations this fiscal year,” said Bill Werner, Executive Vice President, Strategy and Development. “We’re excited to bring the value and convenience of a BJ’s membership to more shoppers as we continue extending our reach across the Eastern United States.”
The list of new clubs includes stores in Seabrook, New Hampshire; Port Charlotte, Florida; Commack, New York; South Fayette, Pennsylvania; Ross Township, Pennsylvania; and Lansing, Michigan. According to a press release, the greater Pittsburgh area and Lansing are new markets for the wholesaler.
The opening of each new club is expected to bring 150 jobs to the respective community. In addition, each new club will feature an expansive selection of fresh foods along with a plethora of household items and other exciting finds.
To offer each shopper a convenient experience, BJ’s will also give its members access to options such BJs.com; the BJ’s app; digital coupons; buy online, pick up in-club; curbside pickup; and same-day delivery.
BJ’s will be hiring across all locations, and those interested can already apply online.
