Latest news about Wal-Mart’s Más Club
Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s Sam’s Club division will debut its Hispanic-themed Más Club concept on July 2 in Houston, offering a variety of products imported from Latin American countries. The 143,000-sq.-ft. store will offer fresh produce and meats, including a variety of cuts, and a full-service meat and seafood counter. It will carry a selection of Hispanic foods and international brands, including beverages, spices and candy for both family use and small-business resale.
In addition, the store will provide space for an outdoor shopping and an event area, and its café will offer fresh-made tortillas. It will also have its own gas station. Membership to Más Club is exclusive, and existing Sam’s Club members will need to purchase a separate annual membership to shop at the facility. Sam’s Club first unveiled the concept in October 2008, and said at that time that locations were slated to open this year.
