BJ's Wholesale to Open Six New Warehouse Clubs in the U.S.
24 May, 2021
BJ’s Wholesale Club Holdings, Inc. has announced plans to open six new locations in the U.S—in Seabrook, N.H., Port Charlotte, Fla., Commack, N.Y., South Fayette, Pa., Ross Township, Pa. and Lansing, Mich.
The Lansing and Pittsburgh areas represent new markets for the warehouse club chain, as the retailer builds its club business on an assortment of fresh foods, household essentials, apparel, toys, tech/electronics and seasonal items, reports Progressive Grocer.
“We’ve made great progress accelerating the pace of our new club openings in the last few years and we’re looking forward to opening six new locations this fiscal year,” said Bill Werner, EVP, strategy and development. “We’re excited to bring the value and convenience of a BJ’s membership to more shoppers as we continue extending our reach across the Eastern United States.”
Meanwhile, in its Q1 earnings report released on May 20, BJ’s pegged revenues at $3.87 billion, a 1.9% increase year-over-year increase from 2020, reports Progressive Grocer. Although same store sales dipped 5.0% in the first three months of this year, that rate beat analysts' expectation for an 8.4% slide.
Headquartered in Westborough, Mass., BJ's Wholesale Club is a leading operator of membership warehouse clubs in the Eastern United States. The company currently operates over 220 clubs and 151 BJ's Gas locations in 17 states and is No. 27 on The PG 100, Progressive Grocer’s 2021 list of the top food and consumables retailers in North America.
