Who is Sam Club for?

If you like buying items in bulk, thus saving money, then the Warehouse Chain is for you. When you purchase an item at Sam’s Club, you are sure to get your money’s worth. For example, I pack of chicken wings may cost $15.00 but you’ll be getting as much as 3 packs of wings in one.

For instance, buying ink for my computer has been a money saver.  The ink cartridges are huge, enabling me to cut down on purchasing ink every two weeks.  When I buy in bulk, I can use my printer up to two months without having to replace the cartridges every two weeks.

In addition, if you are having a big picnic or family reunion then you will come out better shopping for food and other items at Sam’s Club. The warehouse brand is designed for providing products for large group events and crowds which need to be served.

Huge Food Items: Potatoes

Shopping for food at Sam’s Club will intrigue you. The food items are huge. Whenever I go, a grab a bag of potatoes which lasts a month. Potatoes are so huge that one can fee three people.  That is what Sam’s Club delivers: a double portion of a product.

Feeding the Customer

Food Sampling Heaven! One reason that Sam’s Club is the ideal place to shop is due to their distribution of multiple food samples throughout the club. You can sample a variety of foods, including pizza, sausages, chicken, steak, tacos, and a variety of other foods.

Customers who enter the store hungry will come out full and satisfied if they visit all the food sample display stations.

Sam’s Club Support

A Sam’s Club staffer is always ready to assist shoppers who are trying to find their way to an item. The huge aisles are long and stuffed with bulk products, ready to by hoisted upon your shopping cart.

When you approach the checkout counter, the line may be long but it moves along quite quickly. On a busy day, your wait time usually doesn’t last beyond $15 minutes.

Quality Control Practices

Sam’s Club is all about quality. The food items look fantastic. They are neatly organized and clean. The meats are fresh-looking.  You will smell no foul odors as you shop for your favorites beef, steaks, and chicken products.

The aisle is clean and well-presentable. All items are clearly organized and in place. You can shop without wondering why items are in the wrong place. I have discovered that all products are where they are supposed to be every time.

Ranking in its Field Relative to the Competition

Sam’s Club biggest rival among the member-only food warehouse club is Costco, which happens to be the largest in the United States. Costco total annual sales are beyond $97 billion dollars. However, with the backing of Walmart, Sam Club is bound to remain an intense competitor.

My Final Opinion of Sam’s Club

Shopping at Sam’s Club is well worth the experience. You can become a member of the club by purchases one of three membership: Business, Savings, and Plus. Each plan has its own benefits and limitations.  Whichever plan you choose, you will not be disappointed. Enjoy the Journey.
