Shopping in Brook Park

Select Local Merchants

One of the East Coast's best-known members-only wholesale retailers, BJ’s Inc. serves more than six million members in 201 clubs as far west as Ohio. Within these sprawling locations, savvy shoppers knock out most of their errands in a single stop. In the same visit, members can stock up on economy-sized groceries—including USDA choice meats, farm-fresh produce, and everyday essentials—grab name-brand electronics, and even plan a vacation through BJ's Travel. Each service makes up a single part of the club's well-rounded retail experience, but simplifying shopping isn't BJ's only goal; in 2012 alone, the company donated more than $3.2 million to charitable organizations.

Specializing in bottles from small-production boutique wineries, The Olde Wine Cellar quenches sip-seeking palates with a large selection of whites, reds, rosés, and more. Wine tastings, held 6 p.m.–9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, change themes every week to give sippers a big gulp of fermented knowledge. Learn about refreshing wines to drink during hot summer months with the summer reds tasting, or attend a blind tasting session, in which visual deprivation removes prejudices against the wine's color, origin, or sudden appearance on your shirt. Each tasting furnishes imbibers with six samples complemented by plates of cheese and crackers to cleanse the palate between swigs.

Synergy Paintball aims to be a way of giving back to the community by offering a safe place to have fun and expend pent-up energy. As if in agreement, youthful shouts ring out from across the arena's 35 acres, punctuated by the whispery noise of paintballs cutting through the fresh air. The style of play varies across multiple playing fields, which serve as venues for games of capture the flag and speedball. In the jungle area, camouflaged warriors crouch and tumble between towering trees and shimmy among tufts of low brush. Snipers stash themselves atop mounds of dirt or in the beds of dump trucks in another field.

The park has also played host to United States military reserves tactical training, an exercise that filled the park with humvees and transport vehicles before the beginning of a mock Medevac evacuation.
