Sam's Club Opens Its Doors To The Public For A Weekend Of Savings And Samples

BENTONVILLE, Ark., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sam's Club welcomes the public to a three-day spring Open House to show more than 600 U.S. communities why life is better in the Club. From Friday, April 26 to Sunday, April 28, members and non-members [1] can access extraordinary savings on the newest items for spring and summer entertaining.

The Sam's Club three-day spring Open House allows shoppers to taste dozens of complimentary warm weather food and beverage items before they buy, while browsing luxurious patio sets with weatherproof Sunbrella upholstery, hybrid grills for the multi-medium BBQ chef and accessories for outdoor living from gazebos and pop-up gardens to pool floats and play sets.

"One of the most popular benefits of a Sam's Club membership is indulging in complimentary samples at our Tastes 'n' Tips demo booths," said Shawn Baldwin, senior vice president of fresh/freezer/cooler and demos at Sam's Club. "As spring and summer weather finally arrive, the clubs will be bustling with flavorful samples of warm weather recipes, refreshing drinks, amazing seasonal produce and premium quality meats for grilling."

Sam's Club presents a festival of summer-inspired food and beverage samples from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day of the Open House weekend, including but not limited to:
  • Patriotic Pound Cake with assorted fresh berries
  • Assorted gourmet cheeses including smoked gouda, gruyere and Jarlsburg
  • Fresh Enchilada Bake with Brisket and Salsa
  • Grilled Steak Salad with Wish-bone® Dressing
  • Applewood Smoked Pork Chops
  • Garlic and Herb Chicken with Just Add Juiceā„¢ Seasoning
  • Artichoke Spinach Dip with Pita Chips
  • Italian Deli Pasta Salad with Daily Chef Rotini and Castle Wood® Sliced Salami
  • Pre-marinated Honey BBQ Pork Tenderloin
  • Olive Garden Steak with Olive Garden® Italian Dressing
  • Fruity Lemonade Cooler with Country Time® Lemonade and fresh watermelon

Several food pairings are sourced from recipes in Fresh, Fast & Fabulous (Version Three), an exclusive Sam's Club cookbook provided to Open House guests while supplies last. A digital version of the cookbook with inspiring recipes, cooking tips and brilliant photography is also available for complimentary download at

Tastes 'n' Tips samples have inspired loyal members' cooking ideas for several years. Kim Wallace, a Canton, OH Sam's Club member for 25 years and Field Editor for Taste of Home magazine, says the samples introduce new meal ideas into her weekly rotation: "Feeding a family of five, I'm constantly experimenting and looking for new recipes the family will enjoy," said Wallace. "I love sampling fresh meat items at Sam's Club including all of the chicken dishes. In turn I've made new meals I hadn't tried before like Chicken Cordon Bleu, Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo and Chicken Chimichangas. It's fabulous to create new meals the family loves and...saving by purchasing the items in bulk."

"One in three members purchases a grocery product on the same day they've tasted it," added Baldwin. "We are excited to welcome the communities we serve to indulge in Tastes 'n' Tips and see firsthand how Sam's Club prepares members for outdoor fun and entertaining."
