LUBBOCK - The new 151,999-sf Costco Warehouse, located at 6020 34th St., has officially opened its doors. The estimated cost of constriction was $19 million, according to state filings. The facility also has a 2,816-sf fuel facility metal canopy and kiosk.

Costco plans to employ 250 local residents over the next few years. The local economic index provided by Lubbock National Bank indicates a possible 4.6 percent unemployment rate — more than 0.9 percent less than 2012.

Lubbock reached the 200,000 mark in terms of population in the mid-2000s, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and the city’s continued expansion combined with Costco’s overall success in Texas were major factors in bringing the wholesaler to the South Plains.
