The new BJ’s Wholesale Club in Bensonhurst will open its doors to shoppers for the first time this Saturday, September 13, Bensonhurst Bean has learned.
The big box retailer’s latest location at 1752 Shore Parkway, near Ceasar’s Bay, will be open for business beginning at 9am, but the grand opening celebrations are not slated until a week later, on Saturday, September 20. A representative for the company said they’ll be partying that day with “lots of food” in the form of sample carts, as well as other festivities and a ribbon cutting with local elected officials.
The retailer will occupy the ground floor of a 200,000-square-foot space at 1752 Shore Parkway 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.
Construction kicked off in December 2012.
BJ’s will be open 9am to 10pm, Monday to Saturday, and 9am to 8pm on Sundays.
