B.J.'s Membership Club underway in Midtown

B.J.’s Membership Club is under construction in Midtown Charlotte.

The popular wholesale retailer, which sells a wide range of products from groceries to electronics, is scheduled to be complete in September with doors opening in the Fall.

B.J.’s will be located in the same area as Target, directly across the street from the popular Metropolitan shopping center with Best Buy. 

“It’ll kind of give Target a run for their money,” shopper LeKeith Erwin said. “You get B.J.’s and you can get stuff in bigger sizes.” 

Other shoppers are excited about the variety it will bring to Midtown. 

“I think you can feed off the same customer base, the moms that are buying in bulk and then shopping at Target,” shopper Brit Payne said. 

Traffic to the popular area is still a concern for many.

“On the weekends at 10 o’clock in the morning, I can get here in 5 minutes,” Dilworth resident Paul Carvalho said. “[On Thursday afternoon] it took me 10-15 minutes so when B.J.’s opens up I’m thinking maybe 25-30 minutes.”
