Special events planned through weekend including special guest from L.A. Angels

FULLERTON, Calif.--()--Sam’s Club will open its newly rebuilt club in Fullerton this Thursday. The doors will officially open following a 9 a.m. grand opening ceremony at the club located at 603 S. Placentia Avenue.

“We’re excited to offer the community a brand new shopping destination”

The event will focus on the company’s continued commitment to the community. This brand new club will replace the one next door which opened its doors in 1994.

“We’re excited to offer the community a brand new shopping destination,” said Club Manager Alfred Wendt. ”In our new club, we’ll offer an improved member experience including additional health and wellness services, as well as incredible deals and amazing finds on quality merchandise.”

As part of the grand re-opening celebration, Sam’s Club associates selected several local organizations to receive $10,000 in community giving grants.
