SAVANNAH, Ga.–Aug. 1, 2006 – Residents throughout Chatham County have all been clamoring to get glimpse of the new SAM’S CLUB at 1975 E Montgomery Cross Rd., which has been relocated to a new location to better serve the needs of Savannah community. In recognition of this occasion, Club associates are inviting local residents to participate in a special community day on Tuesday, Aug. 8, from 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Media are invited to attend the ceremony for photo opportunities or to shoot B-roll footage.
