Welcome to the Bronx! This weekend was the official grand opening of BJ’s Wholesale Club in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. Residents have patiently waited years for this store to open. Buying high quality products in bulk is a needed service in the neighborhood. I was excited to be invited to a private preview event to tour & see what BJ’s will be offering Riverdale hosted by BronxMama.
Located at 184 West 237th street off of Broadway, the store is accessible by the 1 train and off of the Major Deegan Expressway. Drivers can enjoy free parking on the rooftop of the store which is a plus in New York city!
We were treated to some of BJ’s finest snacks. Do you see how big this tray of cookies is? My boyz are a huge fan of them & the price is even better!
As we toured the newest facility, there were several products that I purchase for my family selling at affordable prices. Buying bulk works for my family because it means less trips to the local grocery store. I can buy Andre’s favorite snacks for school and be ensured that I won’t run out for a few weeks. Families can save tons of money on necessities such as diapers, health & beauty and food. What’s even better is that BJ’s accepts manufacturers coupons for added savings!
BJ’s listened to the community and brought out their best for healthy living. The options for fresh fruits and vegetables was endless. Their large assortment of meat which can be tailored to your needs upon request from the butchers guarantees that families in Riverdale can enjoy quality food for their families.
BJ’s personal brand, Wellsley Farms, is continuing to strive to bring organic variety to their stores. Their projected goal was to increase their organic assortment for 2015 by 30%. Their products meet the USDA organic standards and do not contain any artificial pesticides or fertilizers.
BJ’s is a great addition to the community. They are a company that believes in giving back as well. Community support is a core value at BJ’s, and with that in mind, the new club has partnered with P.S. X037 Multiple Intelligence School as part of BJ’s Adopt-A-School program. The school will receive a $1,000 donation and $1,500 in school supplies to enhance educational programs and curriculum objectives.
