After more than 20 years in Westborough, B.J.’s Wholesale Club will close its doors later this year when it opens its new store in Northborough. Selectmen there have unanimously approved an all alcoholic package store license for the new location, scheduled to open in early fall just a few miles away from the Westborough facility.
After the meeting, BJ’s Vice President Peter Hopley confirmed that the Westborough BJ’s at 290 Turnpike Road will close at about the same time the Northborough location opens.
The new store will be part of the $100 million Northborough Crossing project. Located at the intersection of routes 9 and 20, the project will include a Kohl’s store as well as New York-based supermarket Wegmans.
BJ’s, a membership warehouse store that sells food and general merchandise, has 194 clubs in 15 states. The company announced last week that it would cut hundreds of jobs and close five stores in the Georgia, Florida and North Carolina.
