For many years, there have been rumors about Costco coming to Knoxville. In 2008, there was even an online petition started in hopes that it would lure the company into coming to Knoxville. It seems, though, the rumors are finally true.
Earlier this month, Costco met with the Town of Farragut to discuss their site plan and to eliminate any potential zoning issues. In July, they will submit their site plan to the Municipal Planning Commission in Farragut. And, if all goes according to plan, they could start breaking ground as early of August of this year and be open at the end of the year or in early 2012.
Costco is a wholesale club based out of Washington state and is one of the largest warehouse chains in the U.S. They have more than 425 locations in the United States and Puerto Rico. The business will offer everything from groceries to furniture to electronics. Members are able to purchase these items at a lower price since the business operates on a warehouse format, which allows them to cut operating costs. Costco sells name brand items as well as their own brand of items called Kirkland Signature.
Costco will be a great addition to the Farragut community. With the location being off of Kingston Pike and Lovell Road, it is easily accessible from I-40/75 and is just minutes away from Turkey Creek. It also offers the Farragut community something which they do not all ready have. Costco is a place where you can find almost anything and you can purchase items in bulk at a much lower price.
