The Building of A Costco: Fort Wayne, Indiana
Costco is creating quite the lineup of warehouses opening in the Fall of 2013. Being added to the ever-growing list, is the new Costco Fort Wayne, Indiana slated to open in October of this year. This will be added to Costco Green Bay – Bellevue, Costco North Riverside, Costco Easton – Columbus, and Costco Lexington Kentucky.
This location is going to be a very high traffic area; it is going to be located on the corner of Lima Road and Progress Road. The area where the Fort Wayne Costco will be located is only minutes from every major retailer you could imagine. Everything from Wal-Mart and Target, to Macy’s and more. With the addition of the Costco, it will add even more of a big city feel to the 250,000 population mid-size city.
I have visited all of those locations over the past month, and from what I can see going on at the future Fort Wayne Costco location, they look to be ahead of schedule.
They have the parking lot down, they have the underground plumbing done, and they already have some initial framework going up.
This time around they will not be using Novak Construction like we had seen being used in Easton Columbus Ohio, and instead they are going with Jackson Dean Construction.
With the fast progress they are making on this location, I believe we could see this location start accepting membership sign-ups as early as mid-August. When they offer the initial membership sign up, I wouldn’t be surprised if they offered a $10 cash card with a $55 Gold Membership signup and a $20 cash card with a $110 membership signup. They will also usually toss in a free rotisserie chicken, free pack of Kirkland Signature batteries, and a free case of Kirkland Signature water. These will come in the form of a coupon that they will mail to your house.
Please remember that Costco currently only accepts Cash, Check, Debit, Link Card (Food Stamps), and American Express.
If you are looking to get an American Express card that will have the best signup bonus, I would check out the American Express Starwood card. You will get 10,000 Starpoints after your first purchase and then another 15,000 Starpoints after you spend $5,000 in six months of having the card. These points can be worth over $500 in free hotel stays. To get your Starwood American Express Card Click Here
