BJ’s Wholesale Club has announced it is set to open up a new store, expanding into its 19th state.
The retailer’s first outlet in Tennessee is scheduled to open in June, according to the big bargain provider.
The store will open in La Vergne, Tennessee – about 20 miles away from Nashville.
It will offer customers produce, fresh foods and exclusive offerings.
Bill Werner, BJ’s executive vice president of strategy and development, said BJ’s has been eyeing multiple opportunities to expand into the Nashville area.
“We can’t wait to welcome our newest BJ’s members this year and help provide these local communities with unbeatable value and incredible savings,” he said in a statement.
Th company has been developing their stores in Davenport, Florida and McDonough, Georgia.
Both stores are expected to open by the end of February.
“Our club openings in Davenport and McDonough are part of our continued growth within the Orlando and Atlanta markets, respectively,” Werner said.
All three locations are expected to bring 150 new jobs to their areas.
According to Glassdoor, the cashiers at BJ’s should expect an hourly salary between $13 and $16.
The advancement into Tennessee and expansions in Florida and Georgia extend the company’s widening footprint.
Last year, the brand opened two new stores in New York, Michigan and Florida.
BJs also opened locations in Virginia, New Jersey, Ohio, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania.
The company’s annual sales hit $16.7 billion in 2022.
The brand operates 246 club locations throughout the US.
