Brand New Sam’s Club To Open In Moline This Thursday

Stocks in this article: WMT

Sam’s Club will open its Moline club at 6600 44th Avenue following an 8 a.m. Grand Opening ceremony Thursday, August 21. The membership warehouse club that brought 170 new jobs to the community will give residents and small business owners the opportunity to access incredible savings on quality merchandise, including products made in Illinois.

“The Moline Sam’s Club will cater specifically to the needs of our community,” said Club Manager Aaron Greene. “The leadership and citizens of Moline have been extremely supportive of Sam’s Club and we look forward to serving the area for many years to come.”

Moline associates selected several local organizations to receive $25,000 in community giving grants. In the last fiscal year, Sam’s Club, and parent company Walmart, gave more than $35 million to non-profits in the state of Illinois. The following local organizations will be presented checks prior to Thursday’s grand opening:

  • Susan G. Komen Foundation
  • The Bethany House
  • Gigi's Playhouse
  • Moline Parks and Recreation
  • The Boys and Girls Club of the Greater Quad Cities
  • Q.C. Paws Animal Shelter
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Center
  • Moline Fire Department
  • Moline Police Department

Grand Opening ceremony features local officials, special events

Mayor Scott Raes and President and CEO of the Quad City Chamber of Commerce, Tara Barney, will be among those in attendance at Thursday’s Grand Opening ceremony. Director James Joseph and the American Legion Post 246 will present colors and Molly Truesdell will perform the National Anthem at the grand opening.

As part of the grand opening weekend celebration, Sam’s Club will be offering members the chance to experience to transform themselves into a Major League Baseball player figurine through 3D printing. This attraction will let attendees get a 3D face scan and cast themselves as a MLB player. This showcase event delivers the first-ever mobile personalized merchandise platform for 3D printing that makes fans part of the game.
