EL PASO - The new 136,000-sf Sam’s Club store, located at 9498 Gateway North in Northeast El Paso, is tentatively set to open on January 22, 2015. The estimated cost of construction is $6.5 million, according to state filings.

The store, El Paso’s fourth Sam’s Club, will bring more than 175 jobs, paying new full-time associates $12.33 an hour and managers $50,000 to $170,000 a year.

As part of the corporation's Welcome Home Commitment, Walmart and Sam's Club will offer a job to any qualified veteran who has been honorably discharged within the past 12 months.

The new Sam’s will feature a consolidated area for health and wellness products and services, including a pharmacy, hearing and optical centers.

The store will also be the only Sam’s in El Paso that sells diesel fuel at its gas station.

Sam’s has partnered with the Castner Heights Homeowners Association behind the new club and with Whitaker Elementary School, which is very close.
