BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Sam's Club is waiving membership fees for the military during the government shutdown. During the shutdown, domestic commissaries on military bases are closed. Sam's Club says until they are open, they welcome active and retired military members to shop at their stores without paying for memberships.
Members of the military will need military ID or proof of past or present service, to show at member services or at checkout to waive the membership requirements.
Sam's Club Spokesperson Carrie Moore released this statement, “On Wednesday morning, dozens of domestic commissaries located on military bases were closed as a result of the U.S. government shutdown. Military personnel, retirees and their families heavily depend on commissaries for low-cost groceries and everyday needs. Sam’s Club understands that helping communities meet their needs during uncertain times is the first step to restoring normalcy. In appreciation for the service that the military provides our members and communities, Sam’s Club locations near military bases will waive membership requirements for military personnel, retirees, spouses and their families so they may continue saving on everyday goods and groceries.”
