Thread: Costco

    Costco is going north of Integris. 100% confirmed to Moore. 60/40 in location, but pretty certain between Integris and Life church east of Telephone Road west of I-35

    North of the new hospital or south of Fritts Farm both seem like very realistic possibilities for a Moore Costco.

    This makes sense as far as drawing the Norman market also. Would have been nice though to see it over on I44

    I used the self checkout the other day because it was empty, and the attendant did have a gun, and scanned some of the larger items in my cart. There was no gun for me to use, like they have at Sam's, and it does suck that you have to take everything out of your cart or get yelled at by the machine. If they're going to have self checkout, they'd do well to just copy Sam's model.

    A few days ago I used self serve, the clerk scanned the big items with his hand held scanner and then said I could scan the smaller ones on the table top.

    I asked him if he would scan everything else in the cart for me, and he said Sure, and did.

    Doesn’t ever hurt to,ask.

    I noticed the Edmond Home Depot on Broadway has all new self checks outs with guns. It was nice.

    Why Costco didn't add guns to theirs is a mystery.

For Christís sakes just de- annex south OKC from I-240 south. Mustang or Moore would do far better with this area of town versus OKC government.
    According to greenwell's office okc offered the same incentives for this location as they did for the north side location. Moore offered additional incentives.

    I mean, that exit at I-35 and W. Indian Hill Road is terrible. ODOT and Norman need to get working on getting that rebuilt, so I can understand Costcos issue with that interchange.

    As for Costco, I always thought they should open locations along I-40 close to Yukon, I-40 in Midwest City and then one between Norman and Moore.

    Seems odd. Could have built it just a bit south off Tecumseh in the UNP area and had it fine. Also right off the highway.

    But after reading how much OKC had to pay to get them there I guess it makes sense.

    I know there are no immediate plans but a West OKC and MWC location would make a lot sense.

  11. Default Re: Costco

    Meh. I'm at the point anymore where there's enough places to shop in Norman proper that anything north of Tecumseh may as well be in outer space. I'm sure there are plenty of folks in Norman (especially the west side) that are willing to make the drive, though, so I'm sure I'm the odd one out on this.

    I don't think there is much support for massive retail "kick backs", err incentives among the voters. The disillusionment of how UNP turned out prompted a backlash against the TIF that was used there. I remember when the Wal Mart on the I-35 was built and the city paid for the access road off of Main and that generated upset folks. It would be political suicide for a council member to propose money for COSTCO to locate in Norman. SAM'S would be leading the charge.

    Just kind of ironic that, 3 years before or after when it was actually getting developed, and UNP turns out how it was planned. The downturn hit at the worst time for that development. But that is life, at times.

    Crossing my fingers and toes that something similar doesn't happen with OAK.

    This also is part of the reason I'm frustrated with Chisholm Creek, they've had several years of a relatively favorable economy to work with and still haven't managed to build anything particularly memorable or walkable IMO.

    Went to Costco today and what do i see next to the Hearing Aids/ Pharmacy? An Optical shop!! I thought the state question did not pass...(costco gal said they started Nov 1st) the costco gal said sam's/walmart will probably put their optical shops in at the beginning of the year. is that why the samsclub photo shop closed and is online only?
    costco: frame $ + $60 single vision lens + tax. 5 day turnaround time

    Yes, they closed the photo department (moved it to on-line) to make room for optical.

    Voters did vote down the 'big box optical' question but later there was a compromise by the parties involved and the law was passed through the state legislature.

    wow; what was the compromise? i am still one of the few subscribers to the Oklahoman newspaper (in which their delivery went downhill since they were sold), but did not read about it. i know 100+ new laws started on Nov 1st.

    thanks!
