BJ’s adds new stores, expands into new state
BJ's Wholesale Club is adding five clubs to its growing portfolio across the United States. The expansion includes plans for a new club in Madison, AL, increasing BJ’s retail footprint to 20 states.
BJ’s will also open clubs in Mt. Juliet, TN, Johnson City, NY, Lewis Center, OH, and North Jacksonville, FL. These clubs add to BJ’s 2023 roster of openings, following the retailer’s newest locations in Davenport, FL, and McDonough, GA, as well as the recent announcement of BJ’s first-ever club in the state of Tennessee slated to open this summer in LaVergne.
“We are always striving to bring our BJ’s membership model to new markets and even more smart-saving families,” said Bill Werner, executive vice president of strategy and development for BJ’s Wholesale Club. “We have seen tremendous success with our newest openings. Our expansion into Tennessee and Alabama shortly thereafter is a great example of our efforts to meet the demand for the value, convenience and assortment that BJ’s has to offer its growing member base.”
Each new BJ’s Wholesale Club location is expected to create approximately 150 jobs for its respective community and hiring is expected to start soon for these new locations.
