BJ’s offering free membership to healthcare workers, front line responders
BJ’s Wholesale Club is showing its appreciation for health care workers and first responders amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The wholesale club operator said that all its locations, starting April 19, will reserve an "appreciation hour" from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on Sundays for first responders and healthcare workers. During this time, the designated groups can shop in BJ’s without a membership.
In addition, the retailer is offering a free, four-month membership to all first responders and healthcare workers, which will allow them to shop outside of the reserved Sunday hour.
“We are incredibly grateful for everything that our first responders and healthcare workers are doing to keep our communities safe and healthy,” said Lee Delaney, president and CEO, BJ’s Wholesale Club, which operates 218 locations throughout the Eastern U.S. "We’re proud to offer a designated shopping hour to first responders and healthcare workers as a small way to say thank you for their hard work and dedication.”
Additionally, BJ’s is updating its dedicated shopping hours for members age 60 and over with a designated shopping hour from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
