BJ’s Wholesale Club will open its newest club location May 13 in Lady Lake, Florida. The club, located at 13585 NE 86th Path, will bring the company’s total U.S. stores to 229.
The club will have a BJ’s Gas location on-site and offer members the opportunity to earn discounts through the BJ’s Fuel Saver Program. The Lady Lake BJ’s Gas location marks the company’s 159th gas station. It will have 12 fueling positions and will feature golf cart parking with charging ports, making the store easily accessible to its surrounding community.
“Our team members are thrilled to open our doors to the Lady Lake community,” said Michael Tobacco, club manager of the new location. “We’re looking forward to expanding our footprint in the Florida market by bringing our expansive offerings to the smart-saving members of Lady Lake.”
BJ’s is offering a limited time founding member offer for local shoppers interested in joining the club now through May 12. Shoppers can sign up for a one-year BJ’s Inner Circle membership for $25. Additionally, shoppers can sign up for a one-year BJ’s Perks Rewards membership with BJ’s Easy Renewal for $65.
To date, BJ’s Charitable Foundation has donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida, the YMCA of Central Florida and Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
“We are thrilled to finally welcome BJ’s Wholesale Club to our Lady Lake Community and partner with them in support of our Power Hour afterschool program at the Leesburg branch,” said Richard Yount, senior development officer of the Boys and Girls Club. “BJ’s support is critical to this program, helping to activate our youth and promote education in this community.”
In support of the YMCA, BJ’s donation will go toward summer camps provided to youth at the Frank DeLuca Family Center.
The food bank donation is part of BJ’s 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 food onto the plates of families. The grocer has donated more than 120 million pounds of food including meat, produce, dairy and bakery items to Feeding America member food banks.
