Our listeners know my love and devotion for a certain big box store, but you might be surprised to know there’s a new big box store in my life.
Sam’s Club offers the bulk pantry staples, snacks, and fresh produce you’ve come to expect, but it also offers a wide variety of home goods, electronics, toys, and even gas stations at most locations. You can even Scan & Go as you shop, which means that you are spending less time in line to check out. All you have to do is scan the barcodes as you add things to your cart, go through a special line to finish the process, and you’re on your way!
