Sam's Club eyes savings for small businesses

BENTONVILLE, Ark. Sam's Club has launched the Small Business Savings Drive as part of a campaign that culminates during National Small Business Week May 22. Associates are working for small business owners to find at least $270 million in savings by comparing the prices of similar business related products to items available at Sam's Club.

"The success of small business is key to our nation's economic recovery and we want to be part of the solution," said Cindy Davis, EVP membership, marketing and e-commerce at Sam's Club. "Pennies matter more than ever for today's small business owner and helping them find as much or more than thousands of dollars in savings has a real impact and can mean keeping a new employee, expanding or financing a start-up."

Small business owners and operators as well as entrepreneurs starting a business can call an 800 number to request help and arrange a visit from Sam's Club associates locally. In addition, online at samsclub.com/smallbusiness there are examples of cost comparisons savings, related resources and tips from business owners.
