Default Costco

We've been trying to get a Costco to come to TV for years. Today I got on their web page and scrolled down to the bottom to Customer Service where you could do a live chat for suggestions. I suggested a Costco to come here, and that The Villages is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the U.S. I was asked for my zip code. I was then told they would send that request to the regional manager. If a lot of Villagers would do this, we might get their attention.

I've heard that the Costco Board of Directors has demanded that one be built near TV, as soon as possible...to stop all of the phone calls/e-mails/letters they're getting.

Rumor has it, that they will be concentrating mostly on televisions, electronics, jewelry, adult diapers, smaller portions of meat, home remodeling items, clothes, etc. and relying less on bulk items like 5 gallon buckets of baked bean...and large bunches of green bananas.

Everyone must be calling because I called and waited an hour before a customer rep came on and told me they sent in a team overnight would start building when hell freezes over

No way a Costco will be built here. Not enough population. They want millions in the cities they build. Drive hour to Westly Chapel or Orlando once a month to get my Costco fix

It won't be for many years. If you also look on their site, they have a list of locations for the next 2-3 years. It takes at least that long to purchase land and permits before they even think about building a store.

I am very sure this is correct. I think they will have a pharmacy as well for bulk purchasing of erectile dysfuntion drugs.
