Bj's was started by Zayre's and owned by them but it was later spun off into a separate company. They also started the TJX company.

"Zayre was founded by brothers Max and Morris Feldberg, who immigrated to the United States from outside of Kiev, Russia in the early 1900's. Their first chain of stores was the Bell Shoppes, which sold woman's apparel. Max had a keen business acumen, and Morris was a natural merchandiser together they built a retail dynasty. Zayre started in Hyannis, Massachusetts in 1956 as a discount department store It was initially focused on the Northeast but soon expanded to other areas. During the early 1970s the company started the TJ Maxx chain. In 1984 it started the BJ's Wholesale Club chain. In 1985, Zayre acquired California based Home Club. After the sale of the Zayre chain to Ames, the company changed its name to TJX Companies, which is still in business today.

Zayre developed an image problem because it was seen as offering low class and low quality merchandise. Also the stores began to look seriously outdated. In 1975 Zayre started a program entitled "Zayre 75" to remodel and update the stores from the existing old looking Pink and Blue color scheme to a new updated Orange and Brown theme. The first store to be remodeled was in Waltham, Massachusetts. In October 1988 the Zayre stores were sold to Ames. This doubled the size of the Ames chain, but caused many problems for Ames, and brought about a large loss for that chain. Eventually Ames would close 74 stores, and converted the rest into Ames stores. As a result, some of the remaining Zayre stores operated under the Ames name until Ames ceased operations in 2002." -wikipedia.com

As we all know, BJ's has agreed to be bought by a coalition of private equity firms and upon consummation of the deal its stock will no longer be listed.  An interesting wrinkle has emerged courtesy of the Boston Globe; it appears that there was another bid for the chain for considerably more than the "winning" bid led by Leonard Green and Associates.  The higher bid was apparently rejected due to antitrust concerns.  Kevin Coupe made a wild guess and said it might have been Walmart (I assume it would be to expand Sam's Club into more markets and improve its penetration in others) but what if it was Costco?  I'm sure a lot of us would be excited by this prospect, particularly in Northern New England where it has only one store in New Hampshire, one in Vermont and none at all in Maine.

I didn't even realize there was a topic for BJ's Wholesale on this site. One opened in Southington, CT off of Route 10 on Spring Street in November 2010.

I love BJ's and shop there regularly. They have good prices on organic groceries. :)
I used to go to BJ's as a kid too. I remember my dad sometimes getting me a fresh hot pretzel from the cafe... good times :)

Here is a BJ's in Utica, NY:

BJ's has been trying to build in Rutland, VT for the past year. They've run into the typical Act 250 delays and obstruction from the owner of the failing Diamond Run Mall including an attempted shakedown. They haven't given up on the project, yet.

There used to be a Pizza Hut Express in the BJs in Waterford CT. It has now become yet another Dunkin Donuts. Not sure when it switched over, up until last month it was the first time I had step foot in there for a couple years.
