Costco talk in Oklahoma City
A reader writes:
Hi Richard. Just read your article (on big-box retail space). I’m sure you’re tired of this question, but what’s the latest on Costco in Oklahoma City? Any thoughts on where they would go first? Edmond? Norman? Or OKC? Thanks for your time and an update.
Talk is that if and when Costco comes, it’ll land along the Memorial Road corridor in the Quail Springs Mall area. A broker who does lots of land deals for freestanding boxes said: “My guess is that they are a year or so away from inking a deal, but that is speculation.”
On a lighter note: What IS the fascination with Costco? I’ve never been to one. What am I missing?
