Costco set to open at end of May

Come to the grand opening at 7:40 a.m. on May 30.

The Bonney Lake Costco is opening earlier than expected.

According to Regional Operations Manager Kevin Green, the opening ceremony will be held at the building at 7:40 a.m. May 30, with the official opening at 8 a.m.

This project has been in the works for at least two years, when Visconsi Companies — partial owners of the WSU Forest where the Costco has been built — presented a preliminary plan to the Bonney Lake City Council in September 2016.

The whole project cost around $30 million, and Visconsi estimated construction would bring in roughly $2.2 million in various fees to Bonney Lake, as well as between $300,000 to $500,000 in annual sales tax revenue and roughly the same for property tax revenue — not an insignificant addition of the city’s revenue streams.

Peter Kahn, the assistant vice president of real estate development at Costco, said this 150,000 square-foot Costco will be “state-of-the-art,” and include dozens of fueling stations, including diesel.
