Looked at the official Costco website & didn't find any reference to store in Clermont. There were 10-15 stores listed for 2022 opening - none near TV.

when the last Costco was built in Jacksonville it was never listed in the Costco construction list. They are not always honest or accurate .

Perhaps dreams of a Costco close by for Village shoppers just might come true. Or maybe this is just another false rumor. What say you?
I have spoken to an individual at Costco's corporate office and they recently told me they had no plans to locate anywhere in our general area. From what was discussed, "we" don't have a sufficient number of "family" units that bulk purchase. GK - Pine Ridge

Define "general area"

While I do agree with that define "an individual." CEO, Receptionist, secretary, janitor, someone who broke in and answered the phone ?

I have been doing business with Costco Corporate since the mid 80's. As a result I know or have access to many of Costco's Executive staff. I contacted the SR. VP/General Manager for Costco's SE Region which includes the State of Florida via email. I specifically asked him if Costco has any plans to open a location somewere in the vacinity of Leesburg, The Villages or Ocala. I have cut & pasted the reply I received this morning. It reads:

"Good Morning
We are still In the early stages of looking for the right property and one that makes sense knowing the size (of the market) and competitive environment. Our real estate group is running into issues with finding something that is affordable by our standards. Thanks for checking back.

I can tell you that Costco will not announce any new location until the site is selected and negotiations completed and all permits granted. Information on a new store could leak from locals but Costco will not announce because many "deals" fall apart for various reasons.

At this point in time my only takeaway from the SR VP's response is that they are indeed looking. Keep your fingers crossed.
