Aiken Sam’s Club to Open in 2013


Retail giant Wal-Mart said that its Sam’s Club store, currently in an early phase of construction to the Westside of Aiken, should be opening in 2013.

One of the largest retail constructions in the area, the membership-only retail warehouse club owned and operated by Wal-Mart Stores Inc. hopes to have its doors open in around a year’s time, according to the company.

“The project is on target, and we hope to be able to open late next year,” said W.C. Wertz, divisional director of public affairs and government relations for Wal-Mart, on Thursday. “We’ll have a more specific date in a few months.”

Plans for the store show an approximately 139,000-square-foot wholesale warehouse and a six-pump gas station. The site will be accessed from two entrances with dedicated turning lanes. These changes to the roadway are now visible to motorists heading to Georgia on U.S. Highway 1.
