BJ’s Wholesale Club said Wednesday it is launching a “pick up and pay” online shopping option at all of its 231 locations, according to Supermarket News.
“We are offering our members total freedom of choice regarding how they shop at BJ’s,” said Bari Harlam, executive vice president of marketing and membership, for the Westborough, Mass.-based company. “This new service combines the at-home convenience of online shopping, including guaranteed product availability and our affordable pricing, without the wait for shipping and delivery.”
To use the system, members can sign onto the company's website and select items, which are then hand-picked by BJ’s employees and placed in a cart at the member services desk; members are notified by email when the order is ready, after which they can pick up and pay for their order. Orders placed before 1 p.m. will be available the same day, the company said.
The service will also be available to non-members, who can sign up for a free 90-day membership or accept a $40 membership offer through July 3, the company said.
