Sam's Club set to open new Baton Rouge store
BATON ROUGE, La. — Sam's Club is set to open its newly relocated store in Baton Rouge, La., on Jan. 26.
The 134,000-sq.-ft. club, located at 9598 Cortana Place near the junction with Airline Highway, now will be part of the Cortana Mall shopping area, approximately one mile south of its former location. The club also features environmentally friendly materials and LED energy-efficient fixtures.
To celebrate the grand opening, the store will host a Louisiana-pride themed ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8 a.m. on Jan. 26.
"Our associates have provided excellent service to our members for more than 20 years in the former location, and I'm proud of the work they've accomplished in getting this new club ready for its grand opening," said club manager Kenneth Heckard. "We can't wait to show our neighbors in the Baton Rouge area the expanded selection, with savings on everything from prescriptions to fresh foods, office supplies and high-quality jewelry. In this economy, everyone's trying to save money and find the best values. Our members know that Sam's Club makes saving simple because we offer exceptional value over traditional retailers."
