Construction has officially begun on the new Sam's store that will open off of Hwy 19 South just past the Hwy. 20/59 exit.
Crews began Saturday demolishing the current building. Plans were announced last October for the new "Members Only" warehouse.
The new store will bring over 100 new jobs to the area;70 percent of those will be full time. The store is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.
