Sam’s Club is celebrating the American entrepreneur and National Small Business Week with a special offer to help small business owners nationwide with a 15-week membership for $15.
The program is open to small business owners and entrepreneurs starting up and not currently members to see how Sam’s Club can help them simplify their operations and save.
In a recent state of small business survey conducted by Sam’s Club, more than 4,440 of its members reported they continue to face economic challenges but are moving from survival to success. Their top concerns are fiscal health, as well as fuel costs, access to capital and credit’s impact on their businesses. Current business trends focus on reducing excess expenses to help with cash flow and focusing on new media to attract customers and encourage engagement.
“It continues to be a tough environment for small business owners, but Sam’s Club is here to help,” said Mike Turner, vice president Sam’s Club Membership. “The $15 membership is a great way for us to introduce them to Sam’s Club and our services and we are confident they will see the value of membership within one or two trips to a club or by using samsclub.com.”
National Small Business Week, established by the Small Business Administration (SBA), runs May 23-28.
Sam’s Club has been a sponsor of the event for many years and will also show its support for small business during the annual Sam’s Club Small Business Appreciation Day.
Last year Sam’s Club visited more than 300,000 small business owners nationwide to conduct cost comparisons and identified more than $700,000 million of savings on similar items sold at Sam’s Club and other providers. Sam’s Club makes saving simple for the more than 600,000 small business owners walking through its doors every day of the year with special shopping hours-Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and Saturday 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.- and via its convenient order ahead service, Click ‘n’ Pull. Sam’s Club also does not require minimum orders or contracts.
