The two organizations say the venture will help reduce costs for SMBs.

Entrepreneurs are struggling to make ends meet but in what may be good news for small businesses, a small business group and one bulk store are joining forces in what they say will help small businesses succeed.

This week the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced a joint membership program with Sam's Club which is expected to help lower costs for small business owners.

As part of the two-year program, Sam's Club will unveil a cost savings toolkit which will appear on the Chamber of Commerce website and will sponsor the chamber's U.S. Chamber Small Business of the Year Award.

Brian Cornell, president and CEO of Sam's Club, says the partnership will make business easier for entrepreneurs.

"We understand the challenges small business owners face in today's environment," he said. "We want to remove the barriers to their success by investing in and working with organizations like the U.S. Chamber, which have a proven track record of demonstrating thought leadership as well as change."

Members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will see benefits from the partnership soon as the two organizations announced members will receive a $10 gift card to the retailer along with a free cost comparison.
