New Sam’s Club to open in Woodstock

Published 04 November 2015

Sam’s Club is set to open a brand new club at 9464 Main Street in Woodstock on 5 November.

The community is invited to attend the 8 a.m. grand opening celebration which will include live music from the Woodstock High School drum line and drone demonstrations in the parking lot.

"We really want this grand opening to be a community celebration," said Club Manager Matt Potts. "Giving back is part of our DNA at Sam's Club and we're pleased to announce that we'll be giving $25,000 to local nonprofits to kick off the opening of our new club."

Sam's Club associates selected several local nonprofit organizations to receive $25,000 in community giving grants. Grant award winners include:

City of Woodstock Safety Foundation (Police and Fire)
Must Ministries
Papa's Pantry
Anna Crawford Children's Center
Boys and Girls Club
Woodstock High School Music Dept.
Cherokee FOCUS
Goshen Valley Foundation
Action Church
His Hands

"We are always looking for ways to get involved and support causes that are important to our associates and members," added Potts. "For those interested in applying for future grant dollars from the club, we encourage them to apply online through the Sam's Club Giving program."

Last year, Sam's Club and Walmart stores in Georgia provided over 50 million dollars in cash and in-kind donations to nonprofit organizations in the state. These donations represent community grants, food donations and associate volunteer efforts from stores, clubs and the Walmart Foundation.

Celebration to feature local officials, drone demos and celebrity guests

Mayor Donnie Henriques and Woodstock Chamber of Commerce President Jeff Rusbridge will be among those in attendance at Thursday's grand opening ceremony. Woodstock ROTC will present colors and the Woodstock High School Drum Line will be on hand to entertain as drones will be flying over the parking lot.

Whether you're looking for a toy drone or one for more professional aerial photography projects, Sam's Club is your drone destination this holiday season. As part of the grand opening celebration, Sam's Club vendor Drone Depot will be conducting drone demonstrations in the parking lot throughout the weekend.

To add even more excitement, Sam's Club will host several sport celebrities for meet and greets including:

Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback D.J. Shockley (Thur. 1- 3 p.m.)
Former Atlanta Falcon and Atlanta Braves player Brian Jordan (Thur. 5 - 7 p.m.)
Former NFL quarterback and University of Georgia alum David Greene (Sat. 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.)
Former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz (Sat. 1 - 3 p.m.)

A Sam's Club grand opening would not be complete without lots of tasty food samples and product demonstrations. The Woodstock club will be showcasing a variety of food samples and product demonstrations including Chef Shamy gourmet butters, Berghoff Eurocast Cookware and Bamboo Pillows to name a few.
