A major retailer opens its doors in Bossier City in less than 24 hours.

Sam's Club officially opens on Beene Blvd. at 8 Thursday morning.

The new business is bringing nearly 170 jobs to the area.

Several local organizations have already been selected to receive more than $18,000 in community grants.

Free health screenings will be offered to the public Thursday and Friday at the new Sam's Club.
