mulberry online outlet Lease in the works for Costco to open Fairbanks store
“Costco is the only one we are working with right now,” he said. “At this point, we would probably just pursue something with Costco.”
The Fairbanks North Star Borough announced Monday an agreement had been struck for Costco to occupy the Sam’s Club building, though it didn’t offer details.
A borough news release said that Costco senior executives had visited Fairbanks and that the company is in “the early stages of evaluating the property.”
Mario Omoss, senior vice president for Costco’s Northwest region, said in a voice mail message that Costco hopes the effort move quickly.
“We’ve got quite a bit of work that we need to do to that facility,” he said.
Omoss said officials with the borough and the city of Fairbanks have been helpful.
“I think everything is moving along,” he said.
Costco has made no formal announcement about opening a store in Fairbanks. A spokeswoman for the publicly traded corporation said that announcements about new stores are typically made two or three months in advance of the store opening.
The Costco website that lists “new locations coming soon” shows three stores opening in February and March of this year in Jacksonville, Florida;
Mexico City, Mexico; and Daegu Innovation City, South Korea.
Sam’s Club announced earlier this month that it would close its Fairbanks store, which has been open for more than 20 years.
The closure will cause 150 people to lose their jobs. The company is reportedly providing those employees 60 days of pay and assistance with finding other work.
The flier for the job fair states that “employers will be on site as well as agencies with valuable information.”
