Costco Closing in on Columbia Site


Columbia’s long wait for a Costco store appears to be coming to a close.

The massive warehouse retailer is looking to build a store on Piney Grove Road at Fernandina Road, according to engineering plans that show the wholesaler would front along Fernandina, behind Green’s Beverages.

Midlands consumers have been clamoring for a Costco for years to spar with rival Sam’s Club, which has a stronghold on the market. Costco now has four locations in the state – in Greenville, Spartanburg, Myrtle Beach and Charleston.

The membership-only retailer been looking for a spot in the capital city for the better part of a decade, but it has been reluctant to choose between the Harbison area and Northeast Richland, commercial real estate brokers have said.
