A perfect addition to Rome NY in the former Home Depot location in West Rome. Thoughts?

Would be great, but they would never put one here... Not a big enough population to support it....

A place like Costco would draw from the surrounding area, much like BJ's draws many many Romans to the Riverside Center. The former Home Depot site is situated perfectly to draw from Camden, Oneida, Utica, as well as other areas in the region. Location, location, location....

True, but we don't have any good leaders in the community to promote something like that.... It's a shame. Plus home depot and kmart failed in that very location.

At Give me the green....you are correct, Kmart failed due to Walmart opening up shortly after they did and the location was "hidden" making it hard to draw people in. Home Depot failed due to the road reconstruction project that cut them off for well over a year, a devastating blow to their "store by store" sales. Now with Davidson GM dealership cleaning up the front area and removing that large stand of trees, the entire Canal Place Plaza is more visible. The reconstruction project for the highway is completed and the former Home Depot is an excellent spot for a store like Costco. I firmly believe that that type of store will thrive well there and give serious competition to Wally world.

Oh don't get me wrong, I think it would be wonderful to have Costco here... Just not confident something like that would come to fruition in a town like this.

The biggest issue with Costco coming to this area is thier buisness model,they build in a area whose average family income is a $100k and a above. They serve upper middle income families and thats what makes them sucessful,unfortunily thats not this area. It would be great because they are a well paying company(average hourly rate is $20hr and 80% full time.

People would like more competition to Rome, NY, because there are some elderly people who don't drive outside of Rome. People from Camden who can't drive to Utica or Syracuse. By bringing more competition to Rome, NY it would allow these elderly people to have more choice to shop.
