Maybe a few minutes faster than going to Wesley Chapel. Will try it to see if Clermont has the crowds and chaos that the Orlando locations have.

Staying positive?

Maybe you’ll just be surprised that your gloom and doom prediction doesn’t come true — Just MAYBE, the location will be less congested than the current Orlando location near Millenia Mall (high probability). For those of us who live in the ever-growing area south of 44, zipping down the turnpike to Clermont is even quicker than driving up to Spanish Springs (yesterday, it took me 35 minutes with traffic to get to a Dr appt near the Villages Hospital, in contrast, I can get to the highway 50 exit in Clermont in 28 minutes.)

I think many people are very excited about the Costco opening in Clermont!

We live next to Sawgrass, it should be right around a half hour drive? It seems more convenient than a drive way up to BJs.

I will stick to BJ’s and my golf cart for transportation. No reason to go off in the car.

Actually, from my house, it will be 30 miles closer than the Wesley Chapel location. Also, it will take 19 minutes less time to get there.

From Sawgrass Grove, the Clermont Costco will be 31 miles and 35 minutes via the Turnpike.

Much looking forward to it. We have a Costco membership which we use for electronics delivered to our home, and have a Sam's membership here for the everyday stuff (driving to Altamonte Springs is just too much of a hassle), but miss the Costco quality on store brands. IMO Kirkland is better quality overall than the Member's Mark stuff you get at Sam's.

Costco does a fantastic job choosing locations. I have never seen one that wasn't busy most operating hours.

Millenia Mall has to be one of the highest grossing Costco store.

Clermont and the surrounding nearby areas has some great restaurants, and varieties of cuisines not available in The Villages - I’ll probably get into a routine of a weekly trip down there (stopping for lunch first, then shopping) - I’ve just started doing a monthly trip up to Gainesville to shop Trader Joe’s, and take advantage of doing lunch at some good restaurants up there - I can make that trip in 55 minutes each way.

Altamonte Springs was just slightly better than Millenia when I went there a few weeks ago. The best Costco around Orlando is the business center in the morning, but they don't stock everything. I'm hoping Clermont will be good, but as somebody else stated, Costco picks their spots very well. Lake Denham is South, Richmond not so much.
