When Costco cures cancer, I will get excited.

If you all want a Costco....go onto their FB page & post that you want them here & give them the stats of all the families here FT. I have been e mailing them for 5 of my eight years here. I have sent them lot locations etc. on their corporate website too.

Might be during peak season but if Costco ever opened within 20 miles it would hurt them dearly. They cannot compare with Costco in any department or especially with their minimum wage employees. I think of Sam's as just another Walmart.

People have been contacting Costco and Trader Joe's since I move here 7.5 years ago. Nothing has happened.

We currently do not fit the Costco demographic or marketing footprint. They will not open here since too seasonal and not enough larger families with higher incomes. Look at where their stores are located.

There may be one at the new shopping area across from Pinellas Plaza, however, COSTCO already assassinated a leaker! So wait and see!

I certainly hope Costco will come to Clermont. I will drop my Sam's Club membership in a heartbeat. The local Sam's Club is the worst one I have ever visited, and getting worse. Costco is such a better choice.

Oh well, at least they're getting closer!
70 miles!

After a trip to Sam's yesterday they will never see my smiling face again!
What a fiasco that was...

We travel to Gainesville once a month. At least we can stop at TJs. A Costco would be nice in that area. Have not been to a BJs. We have couple up north, but we use Sams, Costco, TJs, and the exchange.

I spoke to a manager at a Costco and was told the area they move into has to have a $100,00.00 average income for starters. Won’t bore you with the rest.
