Is Costco Coming To Longmont? Sounds Like The Rumors Are True
Folks in Longmont, Colorado, will be saving themselves a drive as a new Costco is coming to town in the latter half of 2023. Here's all we know so far.
Costco In Longmont, Colorado
Roughly two years ago, 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 location will be on East Ken Pratt Boulevard (Highway 119) and South Martin Street. To paint a better visual for you, this would be just east of the shopping center with Best Buy and Dick's Sporting goods. The location is perfect not just for Longmont, but other surrounding 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?
The target opening date is sometime in late 2023 but no longer than the spring of 2024. Costco has certain criteria when opening new stores so if the plans are not slated to be complete by October of 2023, it's said they would then wait until March of 2024 to open its doors. We're obviously hoping it's sooner rather than later. Not just for the store, but that amazingly "cheap" Costco Gas, which will also be available to Costco members when the new location opens.
Some of the really interesting information I found on this story came from the "Backstory" Youtube Video below hosted by local "Longmonters" who have the inside track on this historic development in Northern Colorado.
Keep an eye on the city of Longmont's website as they release further information on the timeline of the new Costco location. If all goes as planned, we could see some dirt start being moved on that area by March of 2022.
