Following a red-hot start at the first Costco location in the Oklahoma City area, Costco is actively working on a new location in Moore.
Main entrance to proposed Costco in Moore
The iconic warehouse chain opened at Memorial Road and Western last May and by all accounts, the store has been a huge success. OKCTalk has learned the OKC store is one of the best performing in the entire chain.
Long lines to gain membership and shop have given way to a steady stream of Central Oklahoma customers attracted by heavily discounted items with a strong emphasis on customer service.
Many locals welcomed the opportunity to not only shop Costco's unique lineup of products – including their popular private-label Kirkland brand – but also as an option to the near-monopoly Walmart has held in the OKC market through its main superstores, Neighborhood Markets and Sam's Clubs.
The company has been searching for a second area location in the Moore and Norman areas and has settled on a site in Moore on Telephone Road, just west of I-35.
The company believes it can draw not only from rapidly-growing Moore but also from Norman, south OKC and beyond.
Tentative start of construction is fall 2020 with a targeted completion of February 2021.
