The opening date for the BJ’s Wholesale Club at 1752 Shore Parkway has been pushed back due to construction delays, Bensonhurst Bean has learned.

(UPDATE: When will Bensonhurst’s BJ’s open? September 13!)

The Bensonhurst location, near Ceasar’s Bay, was slated to open July 12. But a representative for the company informed Bensonhurst Bean yesterday that they’re still putting the finishing touches on the location, and will be opening doors on an unspecified date in September.

The big box store will occupy the ground floor of a 200,000-square-foot space at 1752 Shore Parkway that will be known as the Bay Center. The center will be two stories tall with commercial units above the BJs. The project is being developed by Thor Equities and is expected to be completed sometime in 2014.

Construction kicked off in December 2012.

    If you call the 800 number they say the opening will be on Aug 23.

    • I was told by someone very close to the project in BJs management. I believe the information we got is more accurate.

    And the Belt will be a MESS (eastbound), unless they put an exit on the eastern side of Bay Parkway. Cars will be lined up into the right line of the parkway waiting for the light on Bay Parkway.
