Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Sam's Club Expansion in Lynchburg

Lynchburg, VA - The Sam's Club on Wards Road held a celebration Friday now that its expansion is complete.

The Sam's Club now has a new gas station, pharmacy, optical department and bakery - marking the store's most extensive renovation in its 20 year history.

Because of the added features, Sam's Club also hired 20 new employees.

As part of Friday's ceremony, Sam's Club presented checks to three local non-profits.

"We live in this community so it's very important for us to be leaders in our community and help," said Kevin Berry, membership assistant manager.

Those checks were handed out to the Red Cross, the YMCA and Gleaning for the World.
