What Happened?

Another warehouse club retailer has been gaining steam this year, outpacing major competitors.

BJ’s Wholesale Club. A store similar to Costco, BJ’s, with over 200 self-service stores with pallets stacked high to the ceilings, is having a terrific growth year.

  • Before the pandemic, BJ’s growth was at a sluggish 3%.
  • The wholesale club’s sales have grown by 24.2% over the past year, reaching $3.9 billion at the end of last quarter.

Taking advantage of digital. BJ’s Wholesale Club has been sure to take advantage of the digital-sales boom using Instacart and its curbside pickup.

  • Delivery and curbside pickup sales increased by 300% last quarter.

How Does it Affect My Wallet?

Beating the giants. The bulk grocery retail store has surpassed huge competitors like Costco, Sam’s Club, and Amazon in the growth-rate category.

  • BJ’s has added over 500,000 new club members so far in 2020. Their stock price is up 70% for the year.

A ways to go. BJ’s sales are still one-fifth of Sam’s Clubs and one-twelfth of Costco’s, at an annual $13.1 billion sales.
