BJ's Wholesale Club is a national chain wholesale club with locations in Greece, Henrietta, Victor, and Webster. BJ's features a broad range of products, including groceries, electronics, clothing, and drug store items. Some stores contain an in-store Verizon cellphone kiosk. BJ's also offers a number of discount programs for other products and services.
RIT students can get into Henrietta location without a membership; just show student ID at customer service desk.
Many products at BJ's are sold only in large containers or multi-packs so take a friend or neighbor along to save on gas and share the purchases.

2007-06-07 17:25:06 In my experience, BJ's never asks to see proof of membership to enter the store (unlike Sam's Club). —NathanHenderson
2007-06-07 19:37:13 BJ's does not require you to show membership when entering the store, and Sam's Club does, that's correct. BJ's requires membership when you purchase, however. —StevenDibelius
2007-09-15 12:20:50 BJ's issues coupons to members and accepts manufacturer's coupons as well. The Henrietta location, at least, also never really feels crowded. The Greece location has a Subway for their dine-in option.
If you get the Rewards Membership for $80/year, you'll get a rebate check every 6 months valued at 2% of what you bought (does not include things like vacations, cafe, optics, tires, gas, home improvements, embroidering, etc). The Rewards membership makes sense if you'll spend more than $2250/year ($44/week) there. —DaveMahon
2008-07-10 14:26:42 Don't bother returning bottles to BJ's, their machines are extremely finicky and don't take back half of your returnables. I might expect this for a microbrew but not for things like labatts and rolling rock which were also not accepted. Complete waste of time. —DarrenKemp
2010-10-25 20:08:29 Do I feel kind of dirty shopping here when there are smaller, local shops that offer similar items? Sure. Am I glad that I have a membership to BJ's as opposed to Sam's Club? You bet.
In any case, I find it to be a good place to buy things I use often (toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo, doggie food, cat food, etc.). —BatGuano
2015-06-06 13:36:36 Pro tip: At BJ's, Sam's Club and Costco, they can require a membership for all purchases except things which are regulated by the government. So you can buy beer here for your party at a discount even if you don't have a membership. Prescription drugs and cigarettes fall under this as well. Be prepared that many employees may not know this & you may have to get a manager. This is a state by state law, but most states have this or similar laws in place. —badfish
