For what do we love wholesale stores? We love them for an extensive assortment and their variety. Here, we can buy everything we want and need, starting with general merchandise and electronic supplies or furniture. The other reason why we love wholesale stores is their prices, of course. So, is there any great wholesale shop in the United States with all these features? Yes, and its name is BJ's Wholesale Club. 

It's the top chain of wholesale club stores in the industry. Predominately, it serves the East Coast, including New York, Massachusetts, Georgia, Maryland, and other states. Plus, there are BJ's stores in Michigan and Ohio. As for today, it consists of over 200 locations that serve more than 5 million customers. Additionally, BJ's Wholesale Club has a gas station line with over 140 locations in 15 American states. 

BJ's Wholesale Club is one of the pioneers in the wholesale store industry. It appeared in 1984 almost simultaneously with such leading wholesale retailers as Costso and Sam's Club. Initially, BJ's was a part of Zayre (it was a famous line of discount shops serving the Eastern region). Becoming independent as we know it now had to go through separations, consolidations, new parents, and owners. And it successfully did it. 

Every customer can wonder why BJ's Wholesale Club has such a name. What is BJ? Some people think it comes from Berkley Jensen (a BJ's private label), but they are wrong. BJ means the first letters of Beverly Jean Weich, a daughter of the BJ's first proprietor and president, Mervyn Weich. This way, the company paid respect to his efforts to build a reliable wholesale store company. 

Now let's see what we can buy in BJ's Wholesale Club. Here, everyone can buy everything he wants and needs in one place – food, electronic equipment, furniture, various appliances, products for beauty and health, seasonal items, clothing, gift cards, kids' products, toys, and many other goods.

BJ's Wholesale Club truly cares about its customers. That is why they choose only the highest quality products from the best brands. Moreover, the company also has its own private labels – Berkley Jensen and Wellsley Farms. The first label produces non-grocery general products and other various items. The last brand is a top BJ's Wholesale Club label that manufacturers the freshest-ever food (meat, juices, and milk products). 

If you doubt about the goods' quality, we can dispel your doubts. The high quality of BJ's merchandise is approved on the top level. The United States Department of Agriculture highly recommends BJ's meat. If you do not believe it, come to BJ's Wholesale Club and taste it.

As we can see from a name, BJ's is a club that serves only its club members with client cards. The shop offers two membership types – for business and ordinary customers. For the last clients' group, it's known as Inner Circle. With it, you can get a one-year membership, a coupon package, great discounts, and sales, plus free membership for your family member.
