BJ's Wholesale Club announced today that its newest club in La Vergne, Tenn., will open on Wednesday, June 14. The club, located 20 miles outside of downtown Nashville, marks the first BJ’s Wholesale Club (Marlborough, Mass.) in the state. The retailer will now have a total of 238 U.S. clubs, expanding the company’s footprint to its 19th state.
The new club has a BJ's Gas location on-site, which will open on Friday, June 2, and offers regular, premium, and diesel fuels.
“We can’t wait to open our doors to the La Vergne community at BJ’s brand-new club,” said Christopher Kelly, club manager of La Vergne’s BJ’s Wholesale Club. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this occasion as BJ’s Wholesale Club expands into the state of Tennessee. Our entire team is extremely proud to have this opportunity and impact the communities where we work and live in a positive way.”
BJ’s Charitable Foundation will support the local community through its partnership with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. This summer, BJ’s Charitable Foundation is supporting Second Harvest’s Hunger Free Summer initiative, a program that raises awareness of hunger within the community and provides healthy meals to youth who are facing food insecurity as school cafeterias close for the summer months.
In addition, BJ’s Wholesale Club is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee through its Feeding Communities program. The program is a year-round food rescue partnership where the company donates unsold food to Feeding America member food banks in its footprint, helping to provide wholesome food to local families in need.
