When asked about the origin of BJ’s Wholesale Club, Weich said that the “BJ” stood for her initials. This retail establishment honours Mervyn Weich’s daughter by bearing her name.
As of 2015, BJ’s Wholesale Club had over 200 locations in 15 states. This idea was first put forth in 1984, and it was initially implemented in the northeastern United States. It has spread to other parts of the country since then. Many products available in stores are also available on BJs.com. Members of BJ’s Wholesale Club have access to exclusive savings on a wide variety of everyday necessities as well as premium cuts of meat, organic and natural groceries, and a wide variety of other hard-to-find items.
