BJ's Wholesale Club Plans Three New Stores in Michigan
According to a report from Crain's Detroit Business, the retailer announced it will be opening three new operations in the state: two new storefronts in metro Detroit, as well as a warehouse in Chesterfield.
BJ's Wholesale Club will open a warehouse club in Madison Heights, at the former site of a Super Kmart at 29101 John R Road on November 2. On November 19, it will open a Taylor location at Eureka Road and Racho Boulevard. The two clubs, which come with gas stations, are expected to generate 300 jobs.
With two wholesale clubs in the works in the Detroit area, BJ's will also outfit a third location in Chesterfield Town Center, a 200-acre development, next year.
Other retailers in the area include grocery giant Kroger, whose recent spate of store openings rocked the industry newswire earlier this year. Will BJ's give the company a run for its money? Stay with us at AndNowUKnow as we cover the latest in retail.
