Have you heard about BJ’s Wholesale club opening a new concept of its own kind- called BJ’s Market?
The new BJ’s Market will be opening in Warwick, RI and it’s the first of its kind.
According to WPRI.com, “Peter Frangie, a spokesperson for BJ’s Wholesale Club, tells 12 News the new Warwick location won’t look anything like the company’s other locations.
“We want to be more of a ‘lunchbox shop’ … for the mom and dad that are driving home and say, ‘oh wait a minute, we need to fill the kids’ lunchboxes tomorrow,’ this is the place that they can come,” Frangie explained.
The idea of the market they said is to appeal to those who want to run in and grab a few items on the way home from work.
I know I personally have done that plenty of times getting one or two items at BJs.
Frangie said BJ’s Market will serve as an innovation lab for the company, which means the location will test new products, assortments, displays and customer service enhancements.
The market is 30% smaller than existing stores.
Here is the full press release.
WARWICK, R.I.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– BJ’s Wholesale Club (NYSE: BJ), a leading operator of membership warehouse clubs in the Eastern United States, announced today the opening of BJ’s market, a new concept club in Warwick, RI.
Located at 375 East Ave, BJ’s market is 43,000 square feet, about half the size of a full-sized BJ’s club. BJ’s market will feature top-selling fresh foods, produce, sundries, and seasonal products for members of BJ’s Wholesale club, in a convenient, efficient shopping experience.
“BJ’s market will serve as an exciting new innovation lab for BJ’s Wholesale Club,” said Bill Werner, executive vice president, strategy and development. “We are bringing the same great savings and value our members know and love, but delivering a convenient location closer to home.”
At BJ’s market, members will find the same pack sizes and pricing as BJ’s clubs, as well as the same convenient shopping options including curbside pick-up, Express Pay, and same-day delivery. Existing members will have full access to BJ’s market immediately.
New members who sign up at BJ’s market will have full access to all of BJ’s clubs and BJ’s gas stations, and can take advantage of a limited-time membership offer* now through May 5, 2022:
– A one-year BJ’s Inner Circle membership for $25

The new BJ’s market concept will include testing of exciting product assortments, displays, product demonstrations and convenience initiatives. Product offerings will include the brands BJ’s members love best, along with BJ’s exclusive Wellsley Farms and Berkley Jensen brands, which deliver exceptional quality at a remarkable value.
BJ’s Charitable Foundation is proud to support the local community through both monetary and food donations. To date, the retailer has donated $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Warwick and $15,000 to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.
“We are so thankful for BJ’s generous donation and can’t wait to welcome them to our Warwick Community,” said Lara D’Antuono, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Warwick. “Donations like this are critical to the success of the programs that we run for our youth and we are thrilled to receive BJ’s support.”
The food bank donation is part of BJ’s Feeding Communities program, a food rescue partnership where the company donates unsold perishable food to Feeding America member food banks in its footprint, helping to get wholesome food onto the plates of families.
To date, BJ’s has donated more than 120 million pounds of food including meat, produce, dairy and bakery items to Feeding America member food banks.
BJ’s remains committed to its goal of helping communities grow, prosper and thrive which becomes more attainable through partnerships with local non-profits and food banks in each and every new market.
