Sam’s Club is embarking on its most aggressive expansion in years.
The Walmart Inc.-owned membership warehouse club retailer plans to open more than 30 new clubs across the United States during the next several years. The first location, which is planned for Florida, is slated to open in 2024. The company is also expanding its fulfillment and distribution center network.
Sam’s Club, which operates approximately 600 stores in the U.S., including Puerto Rico, has not opened a new club in years. It closed 63 locations across the country in 2018, converting up to 12 of the shuttered locations to fulfillment centers in a move designed to speed delivery of online orders.Chain Store Age
