Sam’s Club opens store in Bossier City
Shoppers in Bossier City now have a Sam’s Club to call their own.
The newest Sam’s Club held a ribbon-cutting Thursday morning, opening its doors to thousands of shoppers looking to save money by buying in bulk.
But the festivities began even earlier. On Wednesday afternoon, invited guests were given the opportunity to take advantage of the store’s amenities before the official opening to the public.
The celebration began with the “Sam’s Cheer,” which heralds every Sam’s Club opening.
John Hamm, club manager, then presented nine grants to the following local organizations: Special Olympics, $1,000; Vets Helping Vets, $2,000; Bossier Kids Inc., $2,000; Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, $2,500; Volunteers of America, $2,500; World Vision International,
$2,500; River Cities BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse), $2,500; Northwest Louisiana Community Development Corporation, $2,500; and Hand in Paw, $1,000.
