BJ’s Wholesale Club to shut down in Geneva by February 1st

B.J.’s Wholesale Club is closing its location in Geneva, according to the company.

The store located at 3635 Berry Fields Road will be closed by February 1st.

The company said the closures are based on a review of club performance in addition to real estate and market evaluation.

The company issued the following statement:

“We continuously evaluate our strategic footprint to ensure it supports our growth initiatives and drives value for members and shareholders. We remain on track to open two new clubs in the first half of 2020 – one in Pensacola, FL. and one Chesterfield, MI, and are aggressively building our real estate pipeline moving forward. We expect to close one club in Charlotte, N.C. and one in Geneva, NY by February 1, 2020. We are committed to supporting our Team Members through this transition. Team members will be eligible to apply for positions at other BJ’s locations and will be eligible for severance.”

Members will be given the ability to get a refund on their membership, but the company expects many of its customers to move to other locations.
