Sam's Club officials would not disclose the cost of the new building. The construction cost is listed as $7.5 million on the commercial building permit filed with the city.
“The new Edmond Sam's Club is being constructed with a variety of environmentally friendly and energy-efficient fixtures,” said Mark Scott, manager of public relations for Sam's. “For instance, daylight-harvesting skylights reduce the amount of energy required to light the store by up to 75 percent daily.”
The Edmond store will have a fuel station for Sam's members and a pharmacy open to members and to the public. Sam's Club also offers an optical department for routine eye exams and free monthly health screening to help members with healthy preventive measures.
