There’s nothing fancy about Sam’s Club; it’s a utilitarian place that has everything you need, when you need it. Owned and operated by Walmart, Sam’s Club was founded in 1983 in the US and grew into a major chain of warehouse stores.

Named after founder Sam Walton, Sam’s Club operates on a membership structure land sells items in bulk directly off pallets. In the US, the average Sam’s Club warehouse covers anywhere from 6,600sqm to 12,100sqm.
