With its strategy mapped out and its eyes set on the horizon, BJ’s Wholesale Club is setting out down the road of expansion. Recently, the retailer kicked off the first phase of its 2022 development plans with the opening of four new club locations in Warwick, Rhode Island; Lady Lake, Florida; Canton, Michigan; and Greenburgh, New York.
“We continue to accelerate our expansion, and we’re excited to open these new locations,” said Bill Werner, Executive Vice President, Strategy and Development. “We’re always looking for ways to bring the value and convenience of a BJ’s membership to more shoppers, and extending our reach is a major way of achieving that.”
The Florida, Michigan, and New York locations will reportedly feature an extensive selection of fresh foods as well as a selection of local products. This Rhode Island club will serve as an innovation lab for the brand, according to a press release. Named BJ’s Market, the club will allow for testing out new assortments, displays, product demonstrations, and convenience initiatives.
BJ’s vast array of convenient shopping options includes its website, app, in-club and curbside pickup, same-day delivery, and ExpressPay. On top of this, BJ’s membership plan offers up to 25 percent off prices and a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
Each new BJ’s Wholesale Club is expected to create approximately 150 jobs, and BJ’s Market will create around 50 jobs.
