Wholesale giant coming to Palm City in South Florida?
Whether you are looking to make South Florida your permanent home, or are planning a seasonal residency, you will find that we Floridians are very involved with the development of new industry and business coming to our area on the Treasure Coast!
Bargainistas rejoice! As part of Costco®’s 5-year plan published in 2013, “Costco® Wholesale Corp. here said Thursday it expects to open approximately 150 new warehouses over the next five years, including the 28 it projects opening this year,” as reported in Supermarket News®.
Back in 2014, Costco® submitted preliminary plans to build a 153K ft. club between Florida’s Turnpike and Southwest High Meadows Avenue. Now, according to a report on WPTV® the project has proceeded to the next step. It was reported that the official site plan has been submitted to the Martin County’s Growth Management Department.
According to the Costco website, “WHAT IS COSTCO®?
“We are a membership warehouse club, dedicated to bringing our members the best possible prices on quality, brand-name merchandise. With hundreds of locations worldwide, Costco® provides a wide selection of merchandise, plus the convenience of specialty departments and exclusive member services, all designed to make your shopping experience a pleasurable one.”
THE HISTORY OF COSTCO®
The company’s first location, opened in 1976 under the Price Club® name, was in a converted airplane hangar on Morena Boulevard in San Diego. The company found it could achieve far greater buying power by serving small businesses and a select audience of non-business members. With that, the growth of the warehouse club industry was off and running. In 1983, the first Costco® warehouse location opened in Seattle. Costco® became the first company to grow from zero to $3 billion in sales in less than six years. When Costco® and Price Club® merged in 1993 to become PriceCostco, it had 206 locations generating $16 billion in annual sales.
“Our operating philosophy has remained simple: Keep costs down and pass the savings on to our members. Our large membership base and tremendous buying power, combined with our never-ending quest for efficiency, result in the lowest possible prices for our members. Since resuming the Costco® name in 1997, the company has grown worldwide. During the past fiscal year (ended August 30, 2015), total sales were $113.67 billion. For additional information, request a Costco Story and/or a My Costco Services guide when you visit any Costco® membership counter.”
