BJ’s Wholesale Club will open a store Feb. 24 at 245 Highway 81 in McDonough, Georgia. With this opening, the retailer will have 237 U.S. clubs.
The club will have a BJ’s Gas location on site that will open soon, with the opportunity to earn extra savings through BJ’s Fuel Saver Program. The station will offer regular, premium and diesel fuels.
“We are excited to grow our club footprint in the state of Georgia by bringing a brand-new club to the city of McDonough,” said Robert Williams, club manager. “Our members know and love all of the great benefits that BJ’s provides, and we can’t wait to welcome even more members at our newest location.”
At BJ’s, members can choose from a variety of shopping options like in-club shopping, curbside pickup, in-store pickup, same-day delivery and online standard delivery. When shopping, members will have access to ExpressPay through the BJ’s mobile app, a service that allows them to scan products as they go and avoid the checkout line.
BJ’s is offering a founding member offer for those interested in joining through Feb. 23. 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 for $65 instead of the regular $110 membership fee. BJ’s Perks Rewards members earn 2 percent cash back on most purchases.
The company’s foundation supports the local community through its Feeding Communities program, a food rescue partnership where the company donates unsold perishable food to Feeding America member food banks in its footprint. In McDonough, its foodbank partner is the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
“Our…team is incredibly grateful that we have developed a partnership with BJ’s Wholesale Club to support the McDonough community,” said Kyle Waide, president and CEO of Atlanta Community Food Bank.
“Through these critical partnerships, we’re able to help our neighbors in need and provide access to basics such as nutritious meals, which are vital to those we serve in McDonough. With BJ’s support, we know we’ll be able to provide to even more in our community.”
To date, the company has donated more than 140 million pounds of food including meat, produce, dairy and bakery items to Feeding America member food banks.
