Default BJ's coming to villages?

Sorry for the silly question... But... I heard this rumor yesterday.

Anyone else hear there is a BJ's coming here?

THIS rumor is a new one! Rumors abound in this community! Unless you see documentation of it either written or word---believe it when you see it.

IMO, BJ's is a distant third after Costco and Sams Club. Even with their free 90-day memberships, I wouldn't bother to go there.

I'm sorry that some of our posters make fun of new members who ask sincere questions looking for actual information.

I believe NotGolfer and Karostay offered an actual sincere answer. It isn't likely that these types of stores will open in the vicinity of The Villages.

But the rumors going around about BJ's and others are typically just that - or sometimes an "inside joke" told to newcomers, who (as you can see) don't get the joke.

Plenty of room in Trailwinds and a lot of property along State Rt. 44 for another or two big box store.

That would be nice, it is the only club I shop at so it would work out great.

I totally agree.


And IMHO, Sam's is a...distant second.

Costco is King but while I'm still waiting, I won't hold my breath.

You sure they didn't mean BJ's the restaurant? They have a lot of locations in Florida and it would make sense to put one here. If you're not familiar with the franchise it's a great sports bar with good food and beer.

We are new here. Why wouldn't the Developer want a Sams, Costco or BJs here?

It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. We belonged to one in Linden N.J. and don't remember being upset with anything about them. The original for us was Price Club which was no good.

I would consider it a rumor until you see some official announcement. Time will tell.
