Sam's Club members get subscription to wellness

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Sam's Club is taking its promotion of health-and-wellness solutions further by launching its own branded, bimonthly magazine.

Sam' Club said its 8-million member circulation magazine, Healthy Living Made Simple, is the first warehouse club publication solely dedicated to health-and-wellness issues. Topics covered by the publication include items related to personal, child and pet health. Future issues will spotlight local Sam’s Club pharmacists, optometrists and associates, as well as members’ stories, Sam's Club said.

The company said 7.4 million magazines will be sent to members' homes, while 600,000 copies will be available in stores.

“At Sam’s Club, we want to build awareness for the benefits of health maintenance and provide wellness solutions for every community we serve,” said Jill Turner-Mitchael, SVP health and wellness for Sam’s Club. “Along with our health and wellness products and the services we offer, such as free health screenings through the year, this magazine takes that partnership to the next level. When we help our members stay healthy, it also helps them reduce their healthcare costs – a big concern in today’s economy.”
