Mega TP rolls, buckets of laundry detergent, and 200 packs of batteries. If there's one thing we know about Costo, it's that almost anything you buy here will last you what feels like an eternity. Residents of Bradenton looking to renew their memberships will finally be able to shop at a new Costco location of their very own.
The new location will be Manatee County's first Costco and is set to open on August 21st, according to their website. The location will feature your usual Costco digs, including a gas station - we even have expected price ranges as listed on Costco's website at $3.99 for unleaded and $4.99 for premium. You'll see a food court, optical & hearing aid department, and pharmacy.
Probably one of the best parts about shopping at Costco is the whacky things that you might find on your trip up and down the massive amounts of aisles - like giant versions of teddies you want from your boo and the kind of wine glass you've always needed in your life.
Those looking to hit up this Costco when it opens will find it at 805 Lighthouse Drive, Bradenton, FL, 34212 - stock up on all your household needs, honey!
You can see a video posted on Youtube by the Bradenton Harold from June shows the development of the space taking shape below.
Those who don't shop at Costco have other things coming to the area as a part of the developing Heritage Harbour Marketplace. Build plans for this nearly 500,000 square foot space include a fitness center, a 55,000 square-foot movie theater, and 350 luxury residential units along the lake, with completion dates still pending.
According to the Heritage Harbour Marketplace development website, horizontal infrastructure for the marketplace is already done, with a two-story medical office building including Sarasota Memorial Urgent Care and medical offices have been constructed to date.
According to the Herald-Tribune, the build plans for Heritage Harbour list a lot of big-name retailers too, some of which are in the proposal and pending stages.
The list of proposed retailers and restaurants also include Chipotle, Miller’s Ale House, Longhorn Steakhouse, Panera Bread, Blaze Pizza, First Watch, Jersey Mike’s Subs, CoreLife Eatery, Verizon, Pacific Dental Services, Sport Clips, the Hair Cuttery, Amazing Lash Studio, Charter Communications, and Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen.
