Davenport Costco Set to Open This Fall
Who else is freaking out that a Costco is finally opening in the Quad Cities?
Ever since the news that Costco is coming to Davenport was announced last summer, QC residents have been anxiously awaiting the store's opening. Progress on the site, located at 53rd and Fairhaven, is ongoing and the Quad City Times reports that the store is finally set to open in October.
Fall may seem like it's still pretty far away, but considering how quickly the spring went, I have a feeling we'll all be buying industrial size packages of toilet paper at Costco before we know it.
The store's site has had to overcome some obstacles during construction, including possible traffic issues.
"Roadwork is also underway after Costco agreed to fund a new turn lane and center median as part of the project, according to Public Works Director Nicole Gleason. The company will have two entrances on 53rd Street, and the work includes a deceleration lane, a dedicated left-turn lane and a new traffic signal."

According to the story, the new Costco will employ 200 part time and full time workers.
