BJ’s Wholesale Club expands into new state
BJ's Wholesale Club will open its newest club in La Vergne, TN, on Wednesday, June 14. The club, located 20 miles outside of downtown Nashville, marks the first BJ’s Wholesale Club in the state of Tennessee. The retailer will now have a total of 238 U.S. clubs, expanding the company’s footprint to its 19th state.
“We can’t wait to open our doors to the La Vergne community at BJ’s brand-new club,” said Christopher Kelly, club manager of La Vergne’s BJ’s Wholesale Club. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this momentous occasion as BJ’s Wholesale Club expands into the state of Tennessee, bringing the unbeatable value and incredible savings to our newest members in Rutherford County. Our entire team is extremely proud to have this remarkable opportunity and impact the communities where we work and live in a positive way.”
At BJ’s, members can choose from a variety of convenient shopping options like in-club shopping, curbside pickup, in-club pickup, same-day delivery and standard delivery from BJs.com. When shopping in-club, members will have access to ExpressPay through the BJ’s mobile app, a service that allows shoppers to scan products as they go and avoid the checkout line at the end of each trip.
BJ’s Charitable Foundation will support the local community through its partnership with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. This summer, BJ’s Charitable Foundation is supporting Second Harvest’s Hunger Free Summer initiative, a program that raises awareness of hunger within the community and provides healthy meals to youth who are facing food insecurity as school cafeterias close for the summer months.
“We are grateful for the support from BJ’s Wholesale Club,” said Nancy Keil, president and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. “As we enter the summer months, many children, who rely on schools for healthy and nutritious meals, may lose access to these services. Food insecurity is a real concern to children and families in Middle and West Tennessee, and the generosity of BJ’s Wholesale Club will help us feed thousands of children who otherwise would not receive essential meals this summer.”
In addition, BJ’s Wholesale Club is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee through its Feeding Communities program. The program is a year-round food rescue partnership where the company donates unsold food to Feeding America member food banks in its footprint, helping to provide wholesome food to local families in need.
