BJ’s Wholesale Club will open a new store Feb. 17 at 6360 Grandview Parkway in Davenport, Florida. After the opening, the retailer will have 236 U.S. clubs.
The club will have a BJ’s Gas location on site, with the opportunity to earn extra savings through BJ’s Fuel Saver Program. The gas station will offer regular, premium and diesel fuels.
“Bringing BJ’s one-stop shop experience into the Davenport community is a wonderful way to kick off 2023,” said Theodore Kyriakidis, club manager. “We couldn’t be more eager to engage with our smart-saving families in the area, welcome them to this brand-new location, and continue to build upon our strong presence in Florida.”
Through Feb. 16, the retailer is offering a limited-time founding member discount for local shoppers interested in joining. Shoppers can sign up for a one-year BJ’s Inner Circle Membership for $25 instead of the regular $55 membership fee. Additionally, shoppers can sign up for a one-year BJ’s Perks Rewards Membership with renewal for $65 instead of the regular $110 membership fee.
Local shoppers interested in signing up for a membership can visit BJs.com/Davenport or sign up in person at the membership center.
BJ’s Charitable Foundation supports the local community through monetary and food donations. This year, it has contributed to the Boys and Girls Club of Polk County in support of its programs that promote education, health, social character, service and leadership among youth in the community.
“The Boys & Girls Club of Polk County warmly welcomes BJ’s Wholesale Club to the Davenport community and as a partner to our organization,” said Steve Giordano, president.
“We’re very thankful to receive their support. Our youth rely on our nine Boy and Girls Clubs in Polk County, and we could not support them without partners like BJ’s. We can’t wait for BJ’s Wholesale Club to open its doors to the families within this special neighborhood.”
Through a food rescue partnership, BJ’s Wholesale Club also donates unsold perishable food to Feeding America member food banks in its footprint, helping to get wholesome food onto the plates of families. In Davenport, the food bank partner is Feeding Tampa Bay.
To date, the retailer has donated more than 140 million pounds of food, including meat, produce, dairy and bakery items to Feeding America member food banks.
