The Times-Picayune confirms the long-swirling rumors: Costco is really coming to New Orleans. Read about it here. Did you know that Costco is the largest retailer of prime beef in the U.S.A.? The store will occupy a now-vacant but very accessible strip of land at Carrollton Avenue & I-10, opposite Xavier University and alongside the Palmetto Canal. Costco anticpates a mid-2013 opening date.
We’re getting one here too, later this year. At the same time Trader Joes, Publix, and Whole Foods are all moving into Knoxville. Should be interesting.
Wow–lots of signs that somebody corporate believes in the K’ville market!
