Apex, NC — Area residents have been watching for weeks as the new Costco on NC 64 takes shape. Now the company has announced the new store will open in March 2016.

Apex Costco Opening in March

The new 18-acre wholesale club will open in March in the now-under-construction Nichols Plaza. It is located on the north side of Route 64 between Lake Pine and Laura Duncan. There is also a side entrance off Laura Duncan Road.


Once completed, the shopping plaza will be home to additional retailers and restaurants.

Right now, the closest Costco for many area residents is the Raleigh store on Wake Forest Road. Another Costco is located in Durham on North Pointe Drive.

Costco Gas Now Open

Meanwhile, Costco Gas is already open for business. The members-only filling station had prices of $1.72/unleaded and $2.07 premium on Monday, February 1, 2016.

    Most of people in area who shops at BJ or Sams’s Club are already members, so adding Costco membership is additional cost.
    As part of this new Costco location opening, hope it offers to all new members to receive membership discount + Costco Cash Card + goodies and coupons…Also, after March 31st, Costco is stopping to accept AmEx card to replace with VISA branded cards, so new members should consider joining Costco after March 31st.

    There basic membership for 2 household cards is $55 for a 1-year Gold Star Membership
