Anthony Costello, Citygate developer, said, "Costco will retail about $200 million in a year, which means about $16 million in sales tax, which is split between 50% for the state, 25% for the city and 25% for the county, so there's an awful lot of positive economic reasons for Costco coming here for the city, county and the state."

Costco will employ 300 people from our area. Along with that store, there's talks of a Whole Foods moving into the area, along with a Nordstrom Rack

That two hundred million is just money that won't be spent in another store. No increase in tax collections.

BJ's is horrible. The stores are ho-hum and the sample ladies are pulled from the grave. The self serve lanes never work correctly and there's usually a line to leave the freakin store because the door person who punches the receipt is slow as molasses.

When Costco arrives, I'll say see-ya to the loser BJ's

….

I am perplexed. How does a grocery store cater to whites? What makes that distinction?

This is the oddest and racist statement I have seen in awhile…LOL...

It was meant as racebait for idiots like Pigpen aka next door neighbor.
By his reply you can see he's not much brighter than Tyrone.

Whole foods is a great grocery store that will make wegmans take notice in the area. Granted they are in no way a challenge to them locally but their business model will be very successful in town.
you got it

Freddy Sue, aka Tyrone aka Rhonda. So you are saying that Pigpen is smarter than Rhonda and that Rhonda is a racebaiter?

Could Costco have selected a worse location? I'll stick with BJ's at Eastview. Safer and easier to get to. Safer is the key, not how much I can save.
