Stocks in this article: WMT





WENTZVILLE, Mo., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sam's Club will celebrate the opening of its first club in Wentzville – including 200 new jobs to the community – during a special ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30.

Located at 3055 Bear Creek Drive off I-70 at the Wentzville Parkway exit, the new Sam's Club will service one of the fastest growing areas of Missouri and is expected to draw residents of St. Charles and other surrounding counties. Sam's Club will give back to the community by donating nearly $39,000 in grants to local charities in celebration of the grand opening.

"Our Wentzville Sam's Club will enhance the shopping experience in the western section of St. Charles County and even into Lincoln County," said Club Manager Steven Johnson. "Previously, the closest Sam's Club was more than 20 miles away. As members of this rapidly growing community stay busy with work and families, we are excited to help our members save time and money through innovative services and amazing savings."

Wentzville Mayor Nick Guccione lauded the partnership between Sam's Club and the city.

"We are already seeing that Sam's Club is going to be a great partner with our community," said Guccione. "The increase in tax revenue the club will bring will allow for better roads, more police and other benefits for our area. We truly expect the opening of Sam's Club to spur more growth in Wentzville as we reach our second phase of growth."

The Wentzville Sam's Club will be the 17 th club in Missouri. Sam's Club, along with parent company Walmart Stores Inc., employs nearly 42,000 associates in Missouri and last year provided more than $524 million in taxes to state and local municipalities.

Club to Employ 200 Associates, Contribute $39,000 to Community

The Wentzville Sam's Club will employ approximately 200 associates, both full- and part-time.
