I don't know the present situation, but Costco had been trying to move into that lot on Township Line Road near 422, but there was a lot of issues with adjacent residents (one of whom was then elected to the Board of Supervisors) and also concerns about traffic and crime.

If anyone has new information, please do tell...

I heard that Sam's Club backed out... because the township wanted more money from them than they were willing to offer for traffic improvements etc. around the area

Costco is currently searching for suitable sites in Australia. If the price is right and the zoning gets approved, look for Costco to be open sometime in 2008. Costco has a Senior VP living in Australia heading up this new division.

Does anyone know what all is coming to Limerick now?? Besides SONIC.....I see they are building on that whole corner of Township Line & Ridge Pike and even shut down the Valero station. Why is it that these developers cannot put up "COMING SOON" signs so the residents of the township know what is going on........I heard Home Depot, Olive Garden, Sams Club, Walmart......which is it????

I doubt HD will build as there are alreay 2 within 15 miles. They are also downsizing and closing stores as announced this week.

...well that's kinda silly... There's already one in King of Prussia, so why are they building another one so close to that one?!

I guess they figure that the area can handle two of them so close together. Whenever I go to the KoP Costco it's overflowing with people.

I understand that, because I've seen seen the crowds and whatnot, but it still surprises. I grew up in Allentown and still get up there at least twice a month to see family, yet the closest Costco to them is in Montgomeryville. And it looks like there are no plans to expand up there either..

It just seems silly to me that we already have two within a half hour of us, and they're planning on building a third one.

It is just for people in the Limerick area remember there are people west of Limerick that have Costco memberships. Personally if one is built in Limerick I will get a membership. Another thing Sams club didnt really back out they just found a better spot in Limerick. That spot would be at Ridge and Swamp Pikes. The people who fought against it the first time are the same people that would shopped there. It is another case of not in my back yard. The crime issue always will come up wioth people against just like it did with the Casino but there is actually more crime in retail then there is associated with casinos. Remember shoplifting is a crime and with more retail crime rates in an area go up.

Costco has been proposed by O'Neill as part of the whole Sanatoga Springs development next to the outlets. Hasn't been approved yet though.

BJ's is going in next to Lowes in Oaks. Already broke ground.

Is the financial crisis the reason Costco is dragging their feet in Limerick Pa?

It's still moving thru... I think Limerick has a lot of hoops for people to jump thru when they want more $$ from a project
