New members are special at Sam's Club

On Thursday, April 25, members of the Branson Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Hollister Area Chamber of Commerce gathered at the Branson Chamber offices for a ribbon cutting ceremony with Sam’s Club of Springfield.


Rhonda Smith, membership representative and membership sales manager with Sam’s Club 8296, located at 3660 E. Sunshine in Springfield, was on hand with prizes and refreshments, along with special sign-up pricing of just $14 for the first year of membership and $50 for the Plus membership, which offers significant additional benefits. Facebook live-streaming by both Chambers brought in several area residents to learn more.


Smith has been building relationships through Chamber visits in the area surrounding Springfield, to gauge consumer interest as the company plans new stores. Currently the closest locations for Branson area shoppers are the two Springfield stores, with the E. Sunshine location easily accessible from U.S. Highway 65. There is a Joplin location, and two in northwest Arkansas, leaving plenty of potential for a location convenient to shoppers along the U.S. 65 corridor of Harrison, Hollister, Branson and surrounding communities in Taney and Stone counties, and several people in attendance at the Thursday event assured Smith they would be regulars if such a location were added. Sam’s Clubs offer online shopping and curbside pickup, as well as a more traditional shopping experience that includes regular special events, such as a recent Celebration Expo with samples and food trucks on hand.
