The store will also feature a bakery, a BJ’s Café, a deli department, an optical services department, a Verizon Wireless kiosk, and a tire center with propane. A BJ’s gas station is scheduled to open at the Seekonk location in the fall.
Store opening festivities planned for Saturday and Sunday include product sampling and visits with balloon artists and face painters.

Last year, BJ’s was bought by private equity firms Leonard Green & Partners and CVC Capital Partners in a $2.8 billion transaction.
