Florida location named Club of the Year

BENTONVILLE, Ark. – March 27, 2017 — Sam’s Club is pleased to announce its Cape Coral, Fla. Club has been selected as the company’s “Club of the Year.” Each year the company selects one club to receive the top honor based on a number of key factors such as overall performance, associate engagement, member experience reviews, and community involvement.

“It means so much to win this national award and I’m so proud of our associates and members who have made this all possible,” said Club Manager Craig Canup. “We look forward to celebrating this accomplishment and serving this community for years to come.”

Top executives from the company’s Bentonville, Arkansas headquarters will travel to Cape Coral to present the club management team and associates with the award. Associates from neighboring Sam’s Club locations will help staff the store while their colleagues can attend the lunch time award ceremony beginning at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 28.

“The Cape Coral club team really sets the bar high in serving our members day in and day out,” says Betty Marshall, Vice President of Sam’s Club’s Southeast Division. “Craig and his team are a prime example of what we want to be known for at Sam’s Club. If we issued report cards, this club would have been on the honor roll all year long.”

To celebrate this big win, the club will host a community appreciation event on March 28 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and everyone is invited – member or not. This celebration will include free samples, cake, fun and games. Non-members are welcome to shop the club this one day only without a membership.

“This win would not have been possible without the great support we’ve received from the community,” said Club Manager Craig Canup. “We invite all of our members as well as those who are not members to come join us in the celebration.”

The Sam’s Club in Cape Coral opened in 2015 and employs 160 associates.
