BJ's Wholesale Club, a leading operator of membership warehouse clubs, announced that its club in Johnson City, New York, will open on January 26. The club is BJ’s 48th location in New York and 243rd club overall.
“BJ’s Wholesale Club provides unbeatable value and convenience to its members each and every day,” said Matthew O’Connell, Club Manager, Johnson City BJ’s Wholesale Club. “We are excited to bring Johnson City families the benefits of a BJ’s membership, including savings of up to 25% off grocery store prices.”
Johnson City will feature the treasure-hunt experience that BJ’s members know and love with a variety of seasonal favorites, fashion for the family, toys, tech and a selection of local products. The club will also feature a BJ's Gas location on-site.
BJ’s has a longstanding commitment to nourishing its communities and is partnering with the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, a food bank serving the Johnson City community. Once the club is open, BJ’s will donate unsold produce, meat, dairy and more to the food bank every week to support families in need.
“We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with BJ’s Wholesale Club as it opens a new location in Broome County,” said Mark Bordeau, President and CEO of Food Bank of the Southern Tier. “BJ’s commitment and support helps us build and sustain hunger-free communities throughout the Southern Tier.”
BJ’s Wholesale Club has partnered with Feeding America and the Feeding America network of food banks for over 15 years, providing more than 125 million meals to local families.
BJ’s has also donated more than $10,000 to fund classroom projects in six area schools, helping provide teachers and students the classroom supplies they need to succeed. BJ’s Charitable Foundation partners with DonorsChoose, a national non-profit organization, to help meet the needs of students.
Additionally, BJ’s Charitable Foundation is donating $15,000 to Johnson City Schools’ Wildcat Food Center to expand their school snack stations, community outreach efforts, and pantry essentials to support more local families in need.
