Walmart-owned Sam’s Club is building a new 300,000-square-foot distribution center in Oklahoma City, creating 130 new jobs.
The new distribution center is part of Sam’s Club’s ongoing investment in its supply chain and will help the company better serve its members in Oklahoma and surrounding states.
The facility is expected to open in early 2024.
According to Joseph Godsey, chief supply chain officer of Sam's Club, "We are on a journey to transform the entire Sam’s Club supply chain through strategic expansion and cutting-edge automation. This investment will help us provide a better experience for our members in the speed and availability of our products."
Sam's Club has maintained a presence in Oklahoma since opening its first club in 1983.
The company joins Walmart as one of the largest employers in the state, currently providing jobs for over 35,000 Oklahomans.
This new supply chain facility aligns with Walmart's broader shift toward next-generation fulfillment centers nationwide. The goal is to leverage the latest in automation, machine learning, and inventory management to enable faster order fulfillment and shipping for customers.
As Godsey stated, "We’re excited to enhance our supply chain capabilities in the State of Oklahoma.” The distribution center will strengthen Sam's Club's operations and member experience in the region.
Sam's Club, with nearly 600 locations across the US, continues finding innovative ways to transform its supply chain and provide value to its members. The Oklahoma City distribution center represents the latest example of these efforts.
