Sam’s Club To Open New Facilities In St. Louis, Minneapolis

Sam's Club to open new facilities in St. Louis and Minneapolis.

Sam’s Club, a division of Bentonville, Arkansas-based Walmart Inc., has shared plans to open two new distribution centers in early 2024 outside St. Louis and Minneapolis.

The new facilities are part of a multi-year growth plan to transform the supply chain at Sam’s Club and evolve network and end-to-end capabilities. In addition to bringing new jobs to the areas, the new distribution centers will also give members a better shopping experience with increases in speed and availability of products in club and online.

The first facility will open in the greater St. Louis area in January. The 370,000-square-foot facility will be located at 5710 Inner Park Drive in Edwardsville, Illinois, and serve as a distribution center and fulfillment center, creating more than 100 jobs across the region. Hourly associate hiring for the center will begin in December.

Walmart Inc. is a top employer in Illinois with more than 57,000 associates.

The Shakopee, Minnesota, facility will be located at 7400 Hentges Way and will serve as a multipurpose distribution center. The 365,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to open in March, and will have more than 80 employees. Hiring is already underway.

Walmart Inc. employs more than 24,000 associates across Minnesota.

“We’re excited to extend our supply chain network and capabilities for our clubs and members in the region,” said Joseph Godsey, SVP of supply chain at Sam’s Club.

“We’re designing our supply chain network to strengthen our omni-channel experience and increase efficiencies and delivery speed to wherever our members decide to shop with us and receive their products.”

The announcement of these two new locations comes as Sam’s Club has also recently shared plans to open a new distribution center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and a new fulfillment center in Lithia Springs, Georgia.
