Costco, Winco inch closer to new N. Meridian locations

Residents in North Meridian will soon have two large warehouse-style retailers in their midst.

BoiseDev first broke news of the impending Costco Wholesale and Winco Foods at Chinden and Linder in 2017. Since then, the plans for Linder Village changed – and Costco decided to put down stakes just a mile away at Chinden and Ten Mile.

Both projects faced resistance from a few neighbors who fought the products through the City of Meridian’s process. They also challenged both the Costco and Winco projects in court.

A judge tossed out the Costco suit in February. Signs are now up on the property announcing Costco’s future arrival.

Four residents also went to court over the City of Meridian’s decision to approve Linder Village. A check of court records today shows the issue is set to be heard by Judge Lynn Winmill on November 13th.

Despite the court case over the Winco-anchored Linder Village, crews were working on preliminary grading work on the site today.

The N. Meridian location will be Costco’s third warehouse store in the area. The Winco store would bring the number of locations to seven for the Boise-based grocer.

The Costco development would be surrounded by pad sites. Linder Village would include an array of large box retailers, restaurants and future residential and office development sites.
