NATICK, MASS. (AP) - BJ’s Wholesale Club Inc. said Tuesday it will allow its club members to use electronic food stamps to pay for items at all of its clubs.

The membership wholesale club previously allowed use of food stamps at 30 of its clubs. BJ’s leadership said the use of food stamps grew sharply at those clubs and requests from members to accept them grew as the economic downturn has become more severe.

The Natick, Mass.-based company decided to expand the food stamp electronic benefit transfer payment choice to all 180 of its clubs across 15 states.

BJ’s is the third-largest wholesale club in the nation.
