DALLAS, Texas, Sept. 19, 2011 – Webb Chapel residents will soon be able to spice up their shopping lists when Sam’s Club opens Sept. 29. Serving the community since 1984, the newly relocated club, located at 9461 Webb Chapel Rd., celebrates its official grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8:30 a.m. Doors will open to members immediately following the ceremony.
