Diving in deeper

The new Costco, for which permits were filed last September, is set to bring a 161,131-square-foot location to Tomball alongside a 10,000-square-foot fuel station, Community Impact previously reported.

The retailer is also set to receive $6 million in economic incentives to help offset over $20 million in infrastructure costs, according to prior reporting. The incentives will be paid to Costco after the store is built, and the payments will be made up of 50% of the city’s sales tax revenue and 100% of the Tomball Economic Development Corporation's sale tax revenue received from Costco, according to the agreement.

What else?

First Community Credit Union is anticipated to open in a 4,074-square-foot location in front of Costco, according to documents from the Dec. 4 Tomball City Council meeting. Council approved $64,721 in infrastructure incentives for the credit union at its Dec. 4 meeting, Community Impact previously reported.

Stay tuned

Costco's opening is planned for June, according to prior reporting. Costco has a company policy not to comment on future locations until details are ready to be shared, usually two to three months in advance.
