How Was "BJ's Wholesale Club" Named?
BJ's Wholesale Club, Inc. is a membership-only warehouse club chain operating in the East Coast of the United States, as well as in the state of Ohio. The company was started by Zayre, a discount department store chain, in 1984, on the Medford/Malden border. This was and still is the company's flagship store.
As of July 6, 2006, BJ's operates 165 BJ's and 2 ProFoods Restaurant supply clubs. The letters B and J are commonly misinterpreted to stand for Berkley and Jensen which is also a brand name sold in their stores. The company was named after the founder's daughter, Betsy Jane. BJ's competitors include Sam's Club and Costco Wholesale clubs.
