BJ’s plans South Carolina entry


BJ’s Wholesale Club Inc. is preparing to open its first store in a new state.

GBT Realty Corporation, a national commercial development company headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee, is developing the BJ’s Wholesale Club in South Carolina, in the city of Summerville. The $12 million development is situated on a 10.5-acre site. The 87,800-sq. ft. membership warehouse club that will feature a BJ’s gas station is expected to open in late 2016. Construction is set to commence immediately following the acquisition of the site in December.

“We are very pleased to be working with such a trusted developer as GBT," said Pat Smith, assistant VP of real estate for BJ's Wholesale Club. "Together, we look forward to providing another convenient shopping destination that fulfills the needs of value, selection and quality for Summerville consumers, families and businesses.”

BJ’s Wholesale Club currently has more than 200 locations in 15 states, with the closest store to Summerville located in Charlotte, North Carolina.
