BJ’s Wholesale Club Planned for Summerville


bjs-logoCostco and Sam’s Club soon will get some Lowcountry warehouse store competition.

BJ’s Wholesale Club is planning a new 87,000-square-foot store at the end of Jockey Court near Comfort Suites and Wal-Mart in Summerville as its only store in South Carolina. Construction could begin in December on the 21-acre site near Interstate 26 at the Summerville exit, with an opening in late 2016.

“We are excited to be part of the growth in Summerville and look forward to bringing the BJ’s Club experience and savings to the market,” said company spokeswoman Maria Fruci.

The project is making its way through the town’s project review process. The new BJ’s is up for final approval by the Commercial Design Review Board on Sept. 17, and the Planning Commission will consider a request to annex 18.5 acres of the tract and zone it for general business on Sept. 21. The site is in an unincorporated part of Berkeley County for planned development-mixed use.
