BJ’s Wholesale Club

BJs WholesaleBJ’s Wholesale Club is a member-only warehouse-type club operating on the east coast of the United States. In 2010, Forbes Magazine ranked BJ’s at #232 on its America’s 500 Largest Public Corporations

History
Started by a discount department store named “Zayre” in 1984, BJ’s Wholesale Club’s flagship store is still located in Massachusetts. Commonly called “BJ’s,” the letters B and J were taken from one of the founder’s daughter named Beverly Jean. BJ’s was the first store to introduce the warehouse club concept to the United States.

Later that year, Zayre sold BJ’s to TJX, the leading off-priced retailer of home fashions and apparel. They subsequently spun off the warehouse division of BJ’s to create Waban Incorporated which then later made BJs.com an independent company.

The concept of membership to a store or warehouse was extremely new. BJ’s have maneuvered themselves into the #3 position behind Costco and SAM’S CLUB. Food accounts for two-thirds of BJ’s sales which includes fresh, canned, and frozen and instead of focusing on small businesses, BJ’s targets individual customers.

Their memberships are sold at three different levels. The Inner Circle is designed for individual customers, offering only three supplemental cards, and not including tax exemption status or resale privileges. The Business membership offers the same advantages that the Inner Circle provides except that it offers eight supplemental cards, as well as the exemption and resale rights. An Inner Circle member, for an addition amount, can receive the eight supplemental cards, as well as have access to Dedicated Member Care Representatives.

For the price of membership, customers will receive the ability to purchase thousands of top-selling, top-quality brands at wholesale prices. Their low prices can save customers up to 30% off supermarket prices. Members can also take advantage of many discounted services provided by BJ’s Specialty Business Partners. BJ’s also honors all manufacturers’ coupons, and also offers Members Only coupons throughout the year.

    I don’t understand why you people are writing on here as though BJ’s monitors or owns this site. It is called “grocery.com” you morons. I’m super surprised that you all answered the “show that you are human” math question correctly in order to post.

    What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

      What an arrogant ass!! I too read thru the comments and they are perfectly normal everyday type of questions. BJ for sure does not hold an open board and folks anyway prefer to post on social media and sites like this one. What could be more relevant that grocery.com? An organization that cares about its image would surely scan or subscribe to all the chatter on the internet. And finally, you posted here, didn’t you? MD

    When would I be able to buy from you the “earth’s pride all natural” dark chocolate sea salt caramels? I have been to your store in Cary. N.C. a few times already and seems like you only carry the Milk chocolate sea salt caramels. Thank you.

    My daughter-in-law served some dumplings (looked like chinese dumplings) which she said she got at BJ’s (frozen). I think she said they were called Mr. Lin’s, Lings, ????? Can you tell if you have such a thing? Does your Bridgeport CT store carry them?

    “BJ’s Wholesale Club | Grocery.com” was in fact certainly enjoyable and informative! Within todays society that is tricky to deliver. Many thanks, Porter

    Do you still carry The Cranberry Relish that you had up until Thanksgiving when you ran out. My family and I think it is the best tasting that we have ever had and we were really upset that we couldn’t get any at two of your three stores in the Syracuse area. We were told that you were out and when we asked the other day they said you wouldnt be carrying it any longer. I hope that they were wrong because we used it not only at the holidays but all year long.. My daughter and I use it rather than jelly on peanut butter sandwiches. I also tried the cranberry meatballs in the relish that you featured at the Auburn store.
