Costco was set to open in late August, 2013. So what is delaying the opening? Rumor has it that the City of New Orleans has not issued final building permits, that although the City was aware that Costco sells liquor there was a delay in issuing their liquor license, that although the original agreements called for the City to repair the roads around the Costco site that has not happened, that although the City agreed to repair or place necessary traffic lights around the site that has not happened either.
The City from all I have read wanted Costco who is bringing 200 jobs to open here.
Costco is now set to Open September 21st…they are ready to go just waiting for the City….
