I hate to start this up yet again, but is there anything new with the rumor that it will happen?
Westside = Bestside...lets keep it that way!

Was in there a couple of days ago and talked to 2 staff who we always say hi and talk to. Both said consider Costco moving to Westside as a big rumor, that's it. They did say that there will be a gas bar, and when pressed to say where, they said will be "down the road a bit" from their current location. All they could and would say on that.

I heard from a very reliable source that its going across from the Superstore in that big empty lot that sits in between Leckie and Durnin.

This is possibly the longest running joke ive ever heard. We all know it would be foolish to relocate to Westbank.

Absolutely nothing but pure rumor.

Until a location with a bigger lot size then current one & big sign saying the future home of costco is actually seen & witnessed.

It will continue to be nothing but pure rumor.

Actually, alanjh595 - I heard that rumour too. I heard it from a family member who was disinclined to share his source.

I drove past the lot on Baron/Leckie yesterday and there were stakes with pink tape on them all over the place. Driving down Springfield this morning and I saw an official-looking truck and what appear to be surveyors. Nothing on the City development site about it, but something is happening there.

I drove past that large empty area behind SuperStore it appears someone is interested in it and yes there are surveyors.
Its more the big enough

It isn't an awful lot larger than the one it is currently on; if they put a gas bar in we'd be left with the same area or less for the parking and building. If the building ends up larger, we could end up with less parking. I don't know about you, but I'm desperately hoping for a gas bar.

Comparison of lots here

The site in question is actually 4 lots, all told.

So, that's why I'm a little doubtful that this could be a potential site for a new Costco.

^^^ total area based on quick measurement it about 8,000 +/- sq meters larger than current location.

Only piece of property in the area actually big enough is the Bennett land across Springfield from former the target store, unfortunately it's still in a the alr.
