LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Shoppers will once again be allowed to sample food and review products when they visit Sam’s Club. The company announced Tuesday its Taste & Tips program will return this weekend.
The program was paused amid the COVID-19 pandemic for safety reasons.
The program will initially start on weekends and only in limited quantities. There are also new safety measures, such as sealed food samples.
“Over the past year, our members’ shopping behaviors have evolved,” said Megan Crozier, Sam’s Club chief merchandising officer. “Today, more than ever, members want to do more than just shop when they come to our clubs – they want to have an experience. In addition to the return of Taste & Tips, we’ve planned new, immersive sampling experiences that add even more excitement to our clubs.”
Sam’s Club plans to take the food sampling out of the club into the parking lot with a food truck and also hold roaming events where food samples are brought to members are they are waiting to checkout or visiting the member services desk.
Costco announced last week that it’s also bringing back its food sampling.
