Carolina Park's new Costco is ahead of schedule, which means its opening has been set for Aug. 8. People who want to join the store before the opening can visit its temporary location from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 3377 S. Morgans Point Rd.
Special discounts are given to new members and can only be used at the Mount Pleasant Store.
The 150,000 square-foot warehouse will have 200 employees.
When residents wanted to shop at Costco, they had to drive about 24 miles to Charleston or at least 80 miles for the Myrtle Beach location. The Mount Pleasant warehouse will offer much the same stuff as these locations - high-quality, brand-name and private-label products at reasonable prices. Costco offers an array of products and services for both individuals and companies while also helping businesses to save money on the supplies they need.
Customers can see products from brands such as Disney, Sony, Callaway Golf, Kitchen Aid, Michelin, etc. Kirkland's is the signature brand.
The new location will include many convenient specialty departments such as fresh bakery, fresh produce, fresh deli, fresh meat, gas station, pharmacy, optical department with onsite optometrist, hearing aid center, tire center, fine wine, beer and liquor, and food court.
Costco members can save on other services like auto buying and travel.
This will be the sixth Costco in South Carolina, bringing to 526 in the U.S. and 757 around the globe. There are 93 million Costco members throughout the world including the U.S., Canada, England, South Korea, Japan, Wales, Australia and Mexico.
Store hours will be 10 a.m. to 8: 30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
