Default costco?

Has anyone noticed the paint theme of the big new store across from the Lady Lake police station, behind the new restaurant, is painted in the theme of a Costco? Beige with red trim?? That would great if it is...

Just sent our COSTCO renewal to their Real Estate Division, and told them, we can no longer renew after 10 years of being a member, because we moved to The Villages, and that they should consider a TV location, again. We also said because they are not near us, we had to join Sam's Club, but if they build it, we will come back.

Here's the Earth Fare in Ocala, that's why you get their flyer in the Sunday Sun.

Default Costco is coming

My wife was at the Wesley Chapel store a week ago to join again after almost 5 years. There was a specialty item she wanted, so she had to join again for the purchase. The membership agent (Cindy L) asked why it had been so long since we've been a member. She told her that its not conveniently close to The Villages. Well, Cindy said, you're in luck! She'd just returned from a corporate meeting and they have the permits in place and are looking for land to build it somewhere between The Villages and Ocala in 2020.

Ahhh, the bi-weekly "I was told Costco is coming from ____________ at Costco" thread.
Hopefully, but I definitely won't hold my breath.

The bartender @ City Fire told me the same thing.

I thought you needed a location before you got a permit?

Just for the future. You don't have to join. Just get a Costco gift card and they will let you in to spend it even if you are not a member. In fact, you can buy one at Costco without even being a member.

Edit: Correction, you do have to be a member to get a GC but you DO NOT have to be one to use it in store or online. At one time you did not.

Also, anyone can get their prescriptions filled at Costco.

Try the Costco at Wesley Chapel. About an hour south on I-75, right next to the outlet mall and a big "At Home" store. No tolls or other traffic mess with patronizing the Altamonte or Orlando Millennia Mall locations.

If true, for the plethora that love Costco...that would be AWESOME!


Probably not so much...for the Costco haters.
