BJ’s Expansion Continues with First Alabama Store

Posted In: Retail Articles

As the company maintains westward expansion, BJ’s Wholesale Club announced that its first Alabama store will open Friday in Madison.

Over the past two years, BJ’s has moved beyond the company’s East Coast market area, opening its first stores in Michigan and Indiana in 2022 and Tennessee this year. The company has been adding stores in existing territories as well. With the new Madison location, BJ’s store portfolio includes 239 warehouse clubs in 20 states.

In the company’s second-quarter conference call, while noting the Tennessee debut, Bob Eddy, BJ’s president and CEO, indicated that the company has been pleased with the performance of its newer clubs and is continuing to grow its store footprint through new openings. The 27 total clubs BJ’s has opened after revising its new club opening model in 2016 contributed almost $100 million of EBITDA over the last 12 months, more than double the original projection, according to the company.

Tommy Metheny, BJ’s Madison club manager, stated, “We’re thrilled to open the Madison club, our first location in Alabama. As we gear up for the holiday season, we can’t wait to bring BJ’s unbeatable value and convenience to this community. I want to thank both our great team for its commitment to serving our members and the community for giving us such a warm welcome.”
