Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

The information set forth in Item 7.01 is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

This Form 8-K provides supplemental information regarding revisions of historical financial information that are not material to any prior period but that will be reflected in future Form 10-Q and 10-K filings to be made by BJ’s Wholesale Club, Inc. (the “Company”).

As disclosed in the Form 10-Q for the period ended July 31, 2010 filed earlier today by the Company, during the second quarter of 2010, the Company identified errors in its accounting for ground leases. In accordance with accounting guidance found in ASC 250-10 (SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 99, Materiality), the Company assessed the materiality of these errors on prior period reported results and concluded that the errors were not material to any of its prior period financial statements. The Company also concluded that had the errors been corrected in its financial statements for the period ended July 31, 2010, the impact of such an adjustment would have been material to the financial statements for that period. As such, in accordance with accounting guidance found in ASC 250-10 (SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 108, Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements), the financial statements for the prior periods presented have been revised as reflected in the attached Exhibit 99.1. These non-cash revisions did not impact the Company’s revenues or cash flows for any prior period.

In addition, these non-cash revisions had no impact on the Company’s previously announced net income for the quarter ended July 31, 2010, as reported by the Company in a press release and on Form 8-K on August 18, 2010. With respect to the Company’s previously announced balance sheets at January 31, 2010 and July 31, 2010, these revisions resulted in an increase to deferred tax assets of $5.2 million, an increase to non-current liabilities of $13.0 million, and a decrease to retained earnings of $7.8 million.

The information in this Form 8-K (including Exhibit 99.1) shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that

section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
