Since 1994, SAM’S CLUB has proudly served small business owners in the Hatboro area, and we’re excited to continue this tradition in Willow Grove at a brand new location, at 3925 Welsh Rd.

In addition to specialty areas available at the previous location the Willow Grove SAM’S CLUB will feature several new departments, including a pharmacy, 1-hour photo, optical, floral, rotisserie meats and an expanded line of both frozen foods and fresh produce.

“Small businesses have played an integral part in our success, and will hopefully continue to do so in the future.” said John Mullen, general manager. “The quality brands and additional benefits we offer at Every Day Low Cost, helps to ensure that small businesses in Willow Grove continue to thrive for years to come.”

In addition to the grand opening, we invite small business owners in the Willow Grove area to visit our website, www.samsclub.com, to view our new Small Business Confidence Index.

The Confidence Index contains research from owners and operators of local businesses – such as offices, child care, schools, restaurants, motels, vending companies, churches, contractors and beauty shops – which will all play an integral part in the success of the SAM’S CLUB location in Willow Grove.

SAM’S CLUB provides a range of additional small business services and benefits that help entrepreneurs increase productivity and profitability, including: Gold Key hours that reserve the entire Club exclusively for business members to shop before normal operating hours. Business services, including payroll, insurance, and retirement planning that simplify administration and financial management tasks.

Orders placed by 5 p.m. will be pulled and ready for pickup by 7 a.m. the following day. This added service provides members convenience and is used largely by business members as a time savings benefit.
