Costco will open a membership warehouse in Lubbock on Friday, Nov. 15, at 8 a.m. The 152,000-square-foot warehouse is located at 6020 34th St., just outside West Loop 289.

Previously, residents of the area had to drive approximately 300 miles northwest to Albuquerque, N.M., or 315 miles southeast to Fort Worth to shop at Costco.

"We are extremely excited to bring Costco's exceptional combination of quality and value to the Lubbock community," said Warehouse Manager Scott Huntington. "The response from the people we've met has been overwhelmingly positive. In addition to the high quality goods and services, Costco is proud to introduce numerous high paying career opportunities to the local job market."

In the Costco tradition, the Lubbock warehouse will offer quality, name-brand and private-label merchandise at incredible values. Costco helps businesses save money on supplies and on items for resale, and provides a wide range of products and services for personal use as well.

This new Costco location will feature a variety of convenient specialty departments, including a Gas Station, Fresh Bakery, Fresh Meat, Fresh Produce, Fresh Deli with Rotisserie Chicken, Optical Department with Independent Doctor of Optometry, 1-Hour Photo, Pharmacy, Tire Center, Hearing Aid Center, Food Court, and Fine Wine & Liquor. Members also can save on Costco Services such as Travel and Auto Buying.

This 21st Costco warehouse in Texas will be the 459th in the U.S., and 644th worldwide. Costco has 71 million cardholders throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, England, Scotland, Wales, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia and Japan.

The company has been recognized throughout the country for providing its employees with real living wages – the highest in the industry – and for its ethical business practices.

The Costco home office is located in Issaquah, Wash. The company is publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the symbol COST.
