The much anticipated opening of COSTCO is set for this Thursday morning at 8:00am. Stockers have been busy filling the shelves with only produce and bakery items left to be displayed. Since produce and bakery items are only sold as fresh as conditions allow they will be stocked as late as possible for the opening.
