BJ’s Wholesale Club say it will open its newest club, located in Chesterfield, Michigan, on Friday, July 31.
“We’re excited to open our doors at the end of July and provide our community with the convenience and value of a BJ’s membership,” said Malika Harris, general manager of the new store. “The safety of our members, team members and community is always our top priority. Our team members have been working hard to prepare for the opening with additional operational safety protocols to ensure a healthy and safe shopping environment. We’re grateful for the warm welcome we’ve received so far and look forward to providing essential services to the Chesterfield community.”
BJ’s has implemented operational protocols to help promote a healthy and safe environment for members and team members including:
- Enhanced Cleaning Procedures: BJ’s has implemented enhanced cleaning procedures on top of the company’s already high standards. BJ’s is cleaning high-traffic surfaces with greater frequency and will provide additional sanitization supplies for member and team member use.
- Mask Requirement for Team Members and Members: Team members and club members will be required to wear masks unless they have a medical condition preventing them from doing so. BJ’s also provides additional PPE for specific positions, including gloves, safety glasses and face shields.
- Temperature Checks for Team Members: BJ’s will check the temperatures of team members as they report to work. If any team member registers an elevated temperature, they will not be able to enter and will be directed to return home and seek medical care, if necessary. BJ’s asks any team member who feels ill to stay home.
- Social Distancing: BJ’s will encourage social distancing, including posting instructional signage throughout every club; dedicating team members to ensure members wait in line at an appropriate distance while checking out; and making overhead audio announcements. Plexiglass barriers also will be installed throughout the club.
BJ’s club in Chesterfield is located at 45101 Town Center Blvd. and will feature a BJ’s Gas onsite. The club also will include a Snack Shop. Members can enjoy BJ’s signature colossal cookie or a variety of other snacks as they shop the club with their families.
