On the heels of store closures, Sam's Club is testing a new concept: a smaller, mobile-first prototype it says will help define the future of retail
. The first Sam's Club Now, as the prototype has been dubbed, will be in Dallas' Lower Greenville neighborhood. At 32K SF, it is one-quarter the size of a typical Sam's Club. It will test a variety of retail tech, including a mobile-first system where shoppers can scan their purchases as they shop and check out without a cashier.
