Meridian Costco opening pushed back from October 15th date

Idaho AGC Going Up

Welp. That October 15th trip to the shiny new Costco Wholesale location in Meridian will have to wait.

But not too long.

The retailer moved the opening for the Treasure Valley’s third Costco location back a bit.

The new date? Friday, October 30th. 8am.

So your trip for a $5 chicken, hot dog and whatever else the store convinces you to buy is still in the cards – but you’ll have to wait a few more weeks (or visit the stores in Boise or Nampa I guess).

Boise Centre is open

[New WinCo development in N. Meridian changes names, reworks some project elements]

Our visit to the site Wednesday showed significant construction still under way. Crews continued to work on the exterior of the building – with bricks still being laid. Others worked on landscaping, the fuel center and other components.

The Meridian store gives the retailer a presence in a fast-growing portion of N. Meridian and eases access for residents in areas like Emmett, Horseshoe Bend, and other points north.

As BoiseDev reported earlier this year, Costco will pay to widen Chinden Blvd. in the area near the site, bringing it to five lanes.  Costco will get a rebate on their upfront payment using funds from the State of Idaho’s Sales Tax Anticipation Revenue program. That program allows a developer to pay for infrastructure improvements in advance, then directs a portion of sales tax revenue from the project back to the developer in the form of a rebate.
