Bigger, Better SAM’S CLUB Opens In Waco

Entrepreneurs throughout Mc Lennan County are all clamoring to get a glimpse at the new look of their SAM’S CLUB, located at 2301 East Waco Dr. The club will hold a special ribbon cutting ceremony and grant presentation, Thursday, August 11, at 10:00 a.m., to celebrate the 30,000 feet expansion of the Club. Mr. S.C. Radcliffe, Bellmead City Manager and other members from the Bellmead City Council are expected to join associates, grant recipients, and area small business owners in the festivities.

“Small businesses are important to us because they are the backbone and engine of our economy,” said Chris Vasquez, general manager. “By offering quality brands and additional benefits at Every Day Low Cost, we help the small businesses in this community succeed.”

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.
  • Click ‘n’ Pull and Fax ‘n’ Pull are both complimentary express ordering services which allow members to order online at or place their orders via fax. 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.

Becoming a Vital Member of the Community
The expansion will create more than 15 new jobs, and will generate additional sales tax revenue for Waco. Additionally, through its charitable giving initiative, the company is committed to making a positive impact on the communities it serves. During the ribbon cutting ceremony, Club associates will contribute more than $12,000 to area non-profit organizations through the company’s Good.Works. community involvement program.
