The members who are eager to start shopping at the Bradenton Costco will be able to start shopping at the Bradenton Costco new store which is scheduled to open at 8 a.m. on Aug. 21. The 210 employees will be working to fill the 155,000-square-foot warehouse at 805 Lighthouse Drive right up until the opening, to bring the full Costco experience to life in Manatee County.
Hector Mencia, who has been working for 30 years at Costco, dating to his days as a college student in Garden Grove, Calif., and 20 years as a store manager, said that t’s an aggressive schedule. It will take only 110 days from the time the walls went up until the warehouse opens. And he added : “We are thrilled to be bringing Costco’s low warehouse prices to the residents of Bradenton. They have been asking us to open here for a long time, and we already have made an impact on the local job market. We look forward to contributing to this community in many ways,”
