Costco has opened its new 156,000-square-foot Northland location.
Costco, a warehouse membership club, had long been rumored to be opening a Northland location. But it wasn’t until March 2016 that a location was finally confirmed by the Kansas City and Clay and Platte county officials, developer MD Management and the Platte County R-3 School District.
The store is at 1600 N.W. 88th St. It will sell a variety of merchandise including electronics, bulk groceries and pet food, wine and spirits, appliances, furniture and apparel. It also has a gas station, fresh bakery, deli with rotisserie chicken, optical department, fresh meat and produce, pharmacy, tire center, hearing aid center, food court, and beer, liquor and fine wine department.
Hours are listed as 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Costco currently operates 731 warehouses, including 510 in the United States and Puerto Rico. It has area locations in midtown, Independence, Lenexa and Overland Park.
