Relocated Sam's Club Offers Convenience In Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After serving Corpus Christi for more than two decades, Sam's Club will open its new club in the city at 4833 South Padre Island Dr. following an 8 a.m. Grand Opening ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 24. The membership warehouse club, relocating from its current location, will continue to give residents and small business owners the opportunity to access incredible savings on quality products and will provide additional value with a new fuel station.

"We have been a member of this community for many years and appreciate all of the support we have been provided," said Club Manager Stephanie Calderon. "By relocating to a more convenient location for our members and adding additional services, we feel this is a reinvestment not only into our business, but also for the members we have served for a quarter century."

Grand Opening ceremony features local officials, special eventsThe Grand Opening ceremony will feature presentations by Corpus Christi Mayor Nelda Martinez and Chamber of Commerce President Foster Edwards. The celebration will also include posting of the colors by the Carroll High School ROTC, followed by a performance of the national anthem from the Carroll High School choir.

During the Grand Opening, Sam's Club will showcase a variety of special events inside the club. Young Pecan, owned by nearby King Ranch, will be onsite with a variety of treats for Opening Day. Other attractions will include Bulletproof Energy Drinks and Chef Shamy's Gourmet Butters.

To continue its commitment to provide value to the community, Sam's Club will offer special savings on featured products for the Grand Opening, including savings on a VIZIO 60-inch class LED HDTV, an HP 15.6-inch notebook, and USDA choice beef ribeye steak, among others. These limited-time offers will only be available Opening Day through Sunday, Oct. 27, while supplies last.

New club continues tradition with donations, members-only conveniencesThe Corpus Christi club will present grants to local organizations in the amount of $10,000 and will award sponsorships totaling $15,000 to the community.

"My top priority as manager is to serve the Corpus Christi area, and giving back to organizations that are bettering our community is one of the many ways we're doing that," Calderon said. "We constantly strive to be an intricate thread in the community by providing opportunities to those who will make it a better place to live."

Measuring approximately 136,000 square feet, the new club will feature a variety of members-only amenities, including a fresh bakery, a tire and battery center, a café and a fuel station.
