The company 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 US during the coming years.
The first location is planned for Florida and it is slated for 2024. The company is also expanding its fulfilment and distribution centre network. Sam’s Club which operates approximately 600 stores in the US including Puerto Rico, has not opened a new club in years.
“We’ve seen remarkable growth over the past few years with a record number of members, and we’re excited to bring the experience of Sam’s Club to even more markets as we expand our footprint,” said Kathryn McLay, CEO, Sam’s Club.
“We have an opportunity to place ourselves on the cutting edge of efficiency and automation, unique to our business model,” said Joseph Godsey, Senior VP of Supply Chain at Sam’s Club.
