Fourteen Sam's Club locations, including ones in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota and Clearwater, are temporarily waiving their membership requirements in an effort to help those affected by Hurricane Irma.
"Being a member of Sam’s Club means exclusive access to great products, brands and services at amazing values, delivered however you want to shop," a Sam's Club spokesperson said in a release. "During a time of emergency the priority at Sam’s Club is to identify the best ways to serve the communities it calls home."
