Community invited to Grand Opening Celebration Thursday

Keller, Texas, March 27, 2017 — Texas’ newest Sam’s Club will open its doors Thursday, March 30 at 201 Golden Triangle Blvd. in Keller following an 8 a.m. grand opening ceremony. No membership is required to attend the grand opening celebration.

Sam’s Club is committed to providing members with the newest and best innovations as well as making shopping simple. The Keller club will feature a Fresh Island, Health & Wellness Center and a reinvented café to name a few.

“We’re really excited about the great brands and cool merchandise our new club will offer as well as our digital shopping options such as Club Pickup and Scan & Go,” said Keller club manager Laurice Miller. “We are looking forward to unveiling our newest offerings to our friends and neighbors in Keller.”

No need to wait in line
Scan & Go, which transforms the way members shop by allowing them to bypass the traditional checkout process, is just one of many services offered at the new Keller club. The mobile app works by scanning UPC codes on merchandise as shoppers load them into their carts. When the shopping is done, members can pay directly on their smartphones from anywhere in the club and bypass the checkout line completely.

More ways to shop
The Keller club will 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 the drive-thru kiosk to trigger the direct-to-vehicle delivery.

New club features
The membership warehouse in Keller will include the following features:

  • Full service sushi bar and expanded seafood selection
  • Fresh island offering organic and grass-fed beef and other premium meats
  • Two spacious walk-in coolers designed to keep dairy and produce as fresh as possible
  • Reinvented café with a self-order kiosk and expanded seating area with tech charging capabilities.
  • Health and Wellness Center with a pharmacy, hearing center and optical department

Commitment to community
As part of the grand opening festivities, Sam’s Club will be awarding $20,000 in grants to several local nonprofit organizations. The company empowers club managers and associates to identify and support community efforts in and around the neighborhoods they serve.

Sam’s Club is also proud to support small business owners through the company’s Road Show program. This consignment-based program provides local, regional, and national entrepreneurs the chance to set up shop inside Sam’s Club while providing members access to exciting and one-of-a-kind products. Keller’s grand opening will feature Nature Nate’s honey as a part of the Road Show program. Entrepreneurs interested in participating in future Road Shows should contact their local Sam’s Club manager for more details.

Grand opening ceremony to feature local officials, special events
Members of the Greater Keller Chamber of Commerce will be among those attending Thursday’s grand opening ceremony. The Timber Creek High School Color Guard will present the colors and associate Chelsea Thomas will perform the national anthem.

To add to the excitement, five-time Pro Bowler and Dallas Cowboys all-time leading tackler, Darren Woodson, will be signing autographs for fans at the new club on grand opening day - Thursday, March 30 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
