Sam’s Club will open its newest club in the Houston-metro area this Thursday. The doors will officially open following an 8 a.m. grand opening ceremony at the club located at 22402 Bellaire Blvd., Richmond.

The event will focus on the company’s commitment to community. In addition to bringing 170 jobs to the area, the membership warehouse club will give residents and small business owners the opportunity to access incredible deals and amazing finds on quality merchandise, including products made in Texas.

“We are looking forward to serving this community both inside and outside of the club,” said Katy native and Club Manager Valerie Anderson. “From recently providing local high school students business education seminars to volunteering at the Tour de Ted Event to support MD Anderson, we will continue to do our part to be actively involved in this community.”

Sam’s Club associates selected several local organizations to receive $25,000 in community giving grants. In the last fiscal year, Sam’s Club, and parent company Walmart, gave more than $111 million to non-profits in the state of Texas.
