Sam’s Club is opening its warehouse to frontline heroes – and no membership is required!
Like the other retailers remaining open during the coronavirus crisis, Sam’s Club has been adapting its policies for the safety of its members and associates.
The warehouse club has hired additional employees, launched special senior shopping hours and a new concierge service for vulnerable members and even set a limit of two people inside the warehouse for each membership card and no more than 300 members permitted in a club at one time.
Now, all Sam’s Clubs nationwide will expand their special associate shopping hours to include frontline responders. Beginning on April 19th, 2020, Sam’s Club will open for “Hero Hours” every Sunday from 8 AM to 10 AM.
During this time, Sam’s will allow first responders and healthcare workers to shop and no membership will be required to shop during these special hero hours. All shoppers entering clubs will be provided with a mask for safety.

Sam’s Club has said on its social media channels that they are considering healthcare workers to include “anyone who delivers care and services to the sick and ailing either directly as doctors and nurses or indirectly as aides, helpers, laboratory technicians, or even medical waste handlers.” First responders include (but are not limited to) police officers, paramedics, and firefighters.
To limit crowds and promote social distancing, Sam’s Club is asking that only healthcare workers and first responders shop during this time. The Club is not allowing spouses or other family members to accompany shoppers during Hero Hours.
