BJ’s Wholesale Club is expanding its territory in the Sunshine State. The Westborough, Mass.-based membership warehouse club said it will open a new site a 13585 NE 86th Path in Lady Lake, Fla., on May 13—marking the company’s fifth grand opening in 2022.

The Lady Lake location, which brings the retailer’s total number of U.S. locations to 229, will feature fresh foods and produce, a full-service deli, household essentials, pet supplies and the retailer’s signature treasure-hunt experience for BJ’s members. The location will offer curbside pickup, pickup in-club and same-day delivery. The club said it will also include a fueling facility as well as golf cart parking with charging ports.

“Our team members are thrilled to open our doors to the Lady Lake community,” said Michael Tobacco, club manager of the Lady Lake BJ’s Wholesale Club, in a statement. “We’re looking forward to expanding our footprint in the Florida market by bringing our expansive offerings to the smart-saving members of Lady Lake.”

BJ’s said in a release that it is offering a limited-time founding member offer for local shoppers interested in joining the club now through May 12. Local shoppers can sign up for a one-year BJ’s Inner Circle membership for $25. BJ’s said it is also offering local shoppers a one-year BJ’s Perks Rewards membership with BJ’s Easy Renewal for $65. BJ’s said shoppers can visit Lake or sign up in person at the Lady Lake location.

BJ's Charitable Foundation has donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida, the YMCA of Central Florida and Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida to support the local Lady Lake community. In support of the YMCA, BJ’s said a donation will go toward summer camps provided to youth at the Frank DeLuca Family Center.

“We are thrilled to finally welcome BJ’s Wholesale Club to our Lady Lake Community and partner with them in support of our Power Hour afterschool program at the Leesburg branch,” said Richard Yount, senior development officer of the Boys and Girls Club, in a statement. “BJ’s support is critical to this program, helping to activate our youth and promote education in this community.”

BJ’s said the food bank donation is part of BJ’s Feeding Communities program, a food rescue partnership where the company donates unsold perishable food to Feeding America member food banks in its footprint, helping to get wholesome food onto the plates of families.

“To date, BJ’s has donated more than 120 million pounds of food, including meat, produce, dairy and bakery items to Feeding America member food banks,” the company said in a statement.
