The Sam's in Cinnaminson, NJ and Willow Grove, PA are a very similar but different story. The one in Cinnaminson was originally a Two Guys, then Jefferson Ward, then Bradlees, then Sam's Club, then the Sam's moved. The store in Willow Grove was originally a Two Guys, then Jefferson Ward, then Jefferson Ward closed. This is unusual because almost all Jefferson Wards became Bradlees. The store instead became a PACE wholesale, then Sam's, then Sam's moved.

The only Sam's Club on Long Island is about 5 minutes away, in Medford.

What I find hilarious is that in the same complex...is a Target! It was originally planned to be Wal-Mart, but I guess WM didn't want to cannibalize Sam's Club's business. Too bad, so sad.

Sams Club in West Mifflin PA. This Sams has just recently been re-located to this location. It was formally down the road a bit in an old dumpy building.

The older Sam's in West Mifflin was originally one of the Kmart-owned PACE Wholesale Clubs. In fact, you can still see the PACE labelscar on that building.

I know of a few other PACE stores that become Sam's Clubs

The building was built in 1955, I don't know who the original occupant was, but Sears was located in that building from 67-80 until they relocated to the newly built Century III Mall in fall of 1980.  Then the building sat vacant for a couple of years, CCAC had classes there for a brief time in 82 or 83 while South Campus was being repaired/renovated from flood damage then PACE was there until 92.

I went to take a few photos of the building today, and I found that the PACE labelscars have been painted over.  Except for on little patch on the side of the building facing the 7/11 where a real estate sign was.  half of the PACE's "A" and half of the "C" are visible where this sign was.  You can also see the labelscar of the second "S" in SAM'S Club in between the "A" and "C."  I didn't want to chance going to the main entrance to get a photo of it, because I noticed a cop in his car over in the main parking lot.

The Pace in Willow Grove was a Two Guys and Jefferson Ward.

The future Newington, CT Sam's is nearly complete, however, construction is still at a stand-still. I really want the store to open, because as soon as that happens, my family wants a membership there. We could go to Berlin for now, but we'll wait. The Sam's gas station was recently built (within a month) and looks ready.

I've heard that by the end of this Winter, the store will supposedly open. I don't really know if I'd believe that at this point. I hope this store gets the new logo on the building.

Actually, Sam's Club is owned by Walmart*. I see Sam's Clubs paired up with Walmart Stores most of the time.

In Langhorne, PA, the Sam's Club there is right next to a Kmart. This is because the Sam's used to be a PACE, which was as mentioned above, a Kmart-owned membership warehouse.

The new (future) Newington Sam's Club is now expected to open between mid-late July and early August of this year. Apparently, work on the store is back on track. I've seen trucks there, so that's a good sign.

UPDATE on Newington, CT: I drove by the Stew Leonards plaza today and noticed that the future Sam's gas station building has been opened up. The boards are off the windows and the gas pumps have been uncovered with the new Sam's Club logo on them. I have no doubt that they will be open by mid-summer.

The Sam's Club on Northline Road in Southgate, MI, which happens to be my local one. It first opened in either 1988 or 1989 as an early, pre-PACE Sam's-in fact, it is probably the first Sam's in Michigan and even the first Sam's east of the Mississippi River.

Was this location formerly a Pace Membership Warehouse?

There was definitely a Pace in Manchester back in the day, and Sam's Club bought out the chain, so you may be right.

Only 9 Days notice? Wow! When they closed down the Neighborhood Market in Bristol, Connecticut they gave a 25 day notice.
