The first Mas Club will open early next year, the company announced today.
The shop will feature an expanded selection of products from Mexico, officials said. Customers will have to purchase a separate Mas Club membership.

No word on whether the Mas Club card can be used as identification at the border.
"Mas Club will sell produce, meats and Hispanic food, drink, spices and candy. It will also have a full-service meat and seafood counter, an event area, a gas station and a cafe that will sell fresh-made tortillasForbes, reporting from the annual investors meeting where the announcement was made.
No location for the store was announced. We hear there's space in the Highland Village Shopping Center.
