I write extensively about the Costco superchain for NewsBreak. In recent months, most of my articles on the subject have detailed recent store openings as the company is in the midst of an ambitious global expansion.
This piece is no different, as now comes official word of four new locations.
Firstly, per ScrapeHero.com’s current location count: There are 589 Costco stores in the United States as of May 15, 2023. The state with the most number of Costco locations in the US is California, with 133 stores, which is about 23% of all Costco stores in the US.
Let us explore further.
According to a listing from Costco.com, the upcoming locations will continue the company’s expansion. You can read the full list here, which includes these four new entities:
Buckeye, AZ Georgetown, TX NE Denver, CO
N Canton, OH
It should be noted that considerably more than these four U.S. locations are coming soon to the U.S. However, the company holds to a long-term policy that no new stores will be officially announced until they are within three months of opening.
Per a report from The-Sun.com, entitled “TACK ON: Customers Will See Five Costco Changes Next Time They Shop – And One Will impact Your Wallet,” additional openings will come over time, including announced plans to open 24 new stores throughout the current fiscal year. Of those, 15 were said to be opening in the U.S.
It should be noted several of those announced stores have already opened.
The ongoing expansion of Costco is a developing story. In the event of pertinent updates to this matter, inclusive of progress and official announcements of milestone dates, I will share them here on NewsBreak.
Thank you for reading.
