BJ’s Wholesale Club has announced the opening of a BJ’s Market, a new concept club in Warwick, Rhode Island. Located at 375 East Ave., BJ’s Market is 43,000 square feet, about half the size of a full-sized BJ’s club.
BJ’s Market will feature top-selling fresh foods, produce, sundries and seasonal products for members of BJ’s Wholesale club, in a convenient shopping experience.
“BJ’s Market will serve as an exciting new innovation lab for BJ’s Wholesale Club,” said Bill Werner, EVP of strategy and development. “We are bringing the same great savings and value our members know and love, but delivering a convenient location closer to home.”
Members will find the same pack sizes and pricing, as well as the same shopping options including curbside pick-up, Express Pay and same-day delivery. New members who sign up will have full access to all clubs and gas stations, and can take advantage of a limited time membership offer now through May 5: a one-year Inner Circle membership for $25 and a one-year Perks Rewards membership for $65.
The company’s Charitable Foundation also supports the local community through both monetary and food donations. To date, the retailer has donated $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Warwick and $15,000 to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.
“We are so thankful for BJ’s generous donation and can’t wait to welcome them to our Warwick Community,” said Lara D’Antuono, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Warwick. “Donations like this are critical to the success of the programs that we run for our youth and we are thrilled to receive BJ’s support.”
The food bank donation is part of its Feeding Communities program, a food rescue partnership where the company donates unsold perishable food to Feeding America member food banks in its footprint, helping to get wholesome food onto the plates of families. To date, the company has donated more than 120 million pounds of food including meat, produce, dairy and bakery items to Feeding America member food banks.
Headquartered in Westborough, Massachusetts, BJ’s Wholesale Club Holdings Inc. is an operator of membership warehouse clubs in the Eastern U.S. The company operates 227 clubs and 158 gas locations in 17 states.
