CostCo construction clipping along
With just 99 days until its scheduled opening, work on Rochester's new CostCo mega store is rolling along at a good pace these days.
CostCo has an opening date of Nov. 16 listed on on its website for the new Med City location.
Get enough of a vantage point, you can see that quite a bit of of work on the 150,000-square-foot store plus a satellite gas station was done this week.
Remember, this is at the corner of 19th Street Northwest and West Circle Drive.
Kwik Trip is also working on its new location by CostCo. The 108-acre West Circle Drive development is actually owned by Kwik Trip.
When I wrote about Rooster's Barn and Grill opening on the hill just across the road, some readers commented that the former Leo's Pizza Palace/Catch-22/Bob's Smokestack Ribs location does not seem to a good spot for a business.
I think it is worth pointing out that when those businesses tried to make a run in the spot, they did not overlook CostCo and the businesses that cluster around it.
I think the history of that area is about to change… in about 99 days.
