The first facility will open in the greater St. Louis area (Edwardsville, Ill.), in January 2024. The 370,000 square-foot facility will be located at 5710 Inner Park Dr., and serve as a distribution center and fulfillment center, creating more than 100 jobs across the region. Hourly associate hiring for the center will begin in early December. Walmart Inc. is a top employer in Illinois with more than 57,000 associates.

The Shakopee, Minn., facility will be located at 7400 Hentges Way and will serve as a multipurpose distribution center. The 365,000 square-foot facility is scheduled to open in March 2024, and will employ more than 80 associates. Hiring is already underway. Walmart Inc. employs more than 24,000 associates across Minnesota.

“We’re excited to extend our supply chain network and capabilities for our clubs and members in the region,” said Joseph Godsey, SVP of Supply Chain at Sam’s Club. “We’re designing our supply chain network to strengthen our omni-channel experience and increase efficiencies and delivery speed to wherever our members decide to shop with us and receive their products.”

The announcement of these two new locations comes as Sam’s Club has also recently shared plans to open a new distribution center in Oklahoma City, Okla. and a new fulfillment center in Lithia Springs, Ga. (outside of Atlanta).
