Sam's eases Business Membership requirements

BENTONVILLE, Ark. Sam's Club has simplified the requirements for its Business Membership by eliminating more than a dozen required documents including permits and licenses formerly needed to join. Under the new guidelines, small business owners can obtain a Sam's Club business membership simply by providing a current business card, letterhead or other documents they may use to promote or manage their business.

"Sam's Club has always been an inclusive club and we're making it easier than ever for small businesses to benefit from the value and convenience we have to offer," said Catherine Corley, VP small business insights for Sam's Club. "We believe our new guidelines will particularly appeal to those with home-based businesses, independent direct sales professionals and women- and minority-owned small businesses."

Sam's Club also has launched a resource center at samsclub.com/smallbusiness for owners and operators to request a cost comparison on Sam's Club products versus other providers.
