Costco, one of the country’s largest wholesale shopping chains, is coming to Pflugerville, according to a Costco representative.
Costco outside marketer Jordan Uveges confirmed the store’s anticipated arrival during a Pflugerville Chamber of Commerce luncheon today. While an exact location and opening date could not be confirmed, consumers can expect to see the big-box wholesale club open within a year-and-a-half after the store breaks ground, according to Uveges.
Pflugerville Mayor Jeff Coleman also could not reveal where the retailer would be located, but he did confirm the city of Pflugerville has been working with Costco to bring a storefront to the city for more than a year.
Costco’s North Austin location has approximately 66,000 customers that come through its doors, Uveges said. A new Pflugerville store could help relieve congestion as well as attract new customers who do not currently travel to Costco’s North Austin and Cedar Park locations. The Cedar Park store was the last area location to open in November 2013.
Costco is one of many companies, such as Chipotle and In-N-Out Burger, to recently chose Pflugerville for expansion opportunities, helping provide the area with more retail and dining options as well as employment opportunities.
