GRAVESEND - BJ's wholesale store broke ground on its third location in Brooklyn today in Gravesend on Shore Parkway.

BJ's officials say the location will create 300 local jobs in planning, construction and personnel. They say the project's timing could not be any better in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

Local residents had mixed feelings about BJ's coming to southern Brooklyn. One business owner believes she will lose customers in the shadow of a big box store. Others said they look forward to shopping at the location close to home.

The store is expected to open in the spring of 2014.
