New NoCo Area Costco Makes Huge Progress. Is It Almost Ready, Finally?
Can you ever have too many Colorado Costco location options? We don't think so. The latest Costco in the Northern Colorado Area is finally almost ready to open its doors.
New Colorado Costco Opening Soon
Back when I was a kid, the only Costco around this part of Colorado was in Westminster, Colorado, and it wasn't even called Costco, it was the Price Club—completely dating myself here, sorry. We didn't have a membership so I didn't get to scope it out until years later when a friend had that magical card that got me through the door with him. I only remember this because he bought me seasons 1 and 2 of South Park on VHS. I'm dating myself again, apologies. As soon as I was able to get a membership as an adult, I did. I mean, who doesn't need a box of 126 fruit snacks or a 10-gallon tub of mayo? Northern Colorado finally got a Costco a few years back right off of I-25 in Timnath and one more in the area is finally set to open.
Costco Finally Opening In Longmont, Colorado
In 2020, Costco announced its intent to expand its Colorado coverage by building a new 150,000-square-foot facility in Longmont, Colorado. Technically, the initial talks started in 2019, which shows how long it takes for anything to move forward when it comes to a project of this magnitude. The new location is located at 205 Ken Pratt Boulevard. To paint a better visual for you, this would be just east of the Lowes shopping center on 119.
The location is perfect not just for Longmont, but other surrounding Northern Colorado cities in the area who could make a shorter drive to this new location as opposed to how far they're driving now. The closest Costco locations to Longmont currently are in Superior, Thornton, and Timnath, Colorado. Being a proud member of the Firestone, Colorado, community, I can not wait to get this new facility up and rolling because we're huge fans of Costco in my home.
When Is The Costco In Longmont Opening?
While the original projections had the opening set for the fall of 2023 or the early part of 2024, they're now planning on opening this spring.
According to the city of Longmont, Costco is projected to bring in over $4 million in sales tax in its first year which is a huge win for the city. Bring on the cheap hotdogs and giant slices of pizza from their famous foodcourt, we're ready.
