Grand opening set for this Thursday

Castle Rock, Colo., Jan. 24, 2017 —The brand new Sam’s Club in Castle Rock will open its doors this Thursday following an 8 a.m. grand opening ceremony. The club located at 5940 Promenade Parkway will offer Scan & Go shopping. The free mobile app allows members the convenience of using their smartphone to scan and pay for their merchandise without ever standing in a checkout line.

“We’re really excited about all the newness this club will offer – from the fresh sushi bar to the digital ordering station at our reinvented café,” said club manager Tricia Trupp. “Our members are going to love the convenience of Scan & Go and Club Pickup.”

More ways to shop
The Castle Rock club will also offer the drive-thru convenience of Club Pickup - a concierge service for members who prefer to place an online order and pick merchandise up at a scheduled time. Sam’s Club associates serve as personal shopping assistants for this service - handpicking the items to fulfill the order. When members arrive at the club, they can check in on their mobile device or use the drive-thru kiosk to trigger the direct-to-vehicle delivery.

The Walmart-owned membership warehouse in Castle Rock will include the following features:

  • Full service sushi bar and expanded seafood selection (fresh out of water within 48 hours)
  • Fresh Island offering organic and grass-fed beef and other premium cut meats
  • Two spacious walk-in coolers designed to keep dairy and produce as fresh as possible
  • Health and Wellness Center with a pharmacy, hearing center and optical department
