Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT) Finally Brings Free Shipping To Sam's Club

Sam's Club is renovating itself

Sam's Club now will offer two membership offerings compared with the three it used to provide: Sam's Club, for $45 a year, and Sam's Plus, for $100 a year, Reuters said, quoting SamsClub.com CEO Jamie Iannone from a conference call.

Sam's touted those charges as the lowest membership fees in the warehouse club channel.

BJ's Wholesale didn't waste any time swooping in on Sam's Club members after owner Walmart made a decision to close a number of its locations.

The warehouse division of Walmart Inc.is adding a perk for its premium members - free shipping on almost every item available on its website.

When asked on Tuesday why Sam's Club carried out the closures in that manner, the company's CEO, John Furner, said he wanted to make sure employees heard the news from Sam's Club rather than the media. "Closing clubs is never easy and we're committed to working with impacted members and associates through this transition".

The moves announced Tuesday continue Furner's plans to transform the warehouse business, which has typically been behind Costco's sales growth in the club segment. While executives gave few details on the exact locations of those centers, aside from the first slated to open in Memphis, more details will emerge within the next six weeks. He defined those target customers as homeowners who earn between $75,000 and $125,000 annually and typically live in the suburbs.

"We've taken the previous year to make sure we are making really clear, deliberate choices in a way that adds value for that core consumer", Furner said. "Whether it works or not, your guess is as good as mine".

Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) this week announced some more major changes for its Sam's Club unit, which recently and suddenly closed a large batch of its underperforming stores. "We're serious about building a new Sam's Club, and we're just getting started", the company stated in a press release.

Sam's Club's new perks are part of an overall transformation of the business, which is focused on reducing complexities, "right sizing" its store fleet and improving features like scan-and-go, pickup operations, fresh delivery and digital tools that reorder essentials. Sam's Club is also considering putting up fulfilment centers in other places such as the Northeast, the Mid-Atlantic, Chicago, Southern California, Central Florida and Texas.
