Default Costco Planned For Ocala??

I heard on WVLG that a new Costco is planned within all the new retail development west of I-75 on CR 200 in Ocala. That's the first I've heard of a new Costco. If one gets built, I'll be a happy camper. Has anyone heard any more about this planned opening?

So far, their web site has the closest at 40 miles away south in Altamonte Springs, so it musn't be imminent.

I'm with you - it's something I'd use pretty frequently!

Hi punkpup:

Thank you for your email. We are continually in search of areas that will not only
benefit economically from a Costco warehouse, but also make sense financially. Our
corporate policy is to make no comment to the public on specific markets until property is
purchased and construction has begun. Here is a link to our website that you can check at any time for future Costco Locations currently under construction

Thanks again for your interest in Costco Wholesale.

I'd like to confirm a rumor I heard that a new Costco is being built in Ocala, Florida
west of I-75 on CR 200.

Thank You,
