    I just heard a rumor that they're building a Costco in Norman on 24th Ave NW, north of Target. The only news hit I could find was from mid-July, and it just talked about Costco not commenting on rumors that they're going to build one in Tulsa.

    Anyone heard anything about this?

    I've heard this before.

    My understanding, with no real basis in direct knowledge, is that Costco won't come to Oklahoma because they can't sell wine in the stores and that is a big profit center for them.

    Wife manages all Costco accounts for her company, and it's nothing she's heard of. I'll ask her to poke around to her Costco account reps to see if it's true, but I doubt it is.

    That's what I'd heard, as well, but the way it was presented is that the store is under construction. Of course, I haven't been over there recently, so I don't even know if there is anything under construction...

    Costco rocks! They just blow Sam's Club outta the water. Seriously, Costco has a sratch made bakery. Sam's Club throws pre-made frozen dough products either in the proofer or the oven. The checkout clerks at Sam's are slow or slower. Costco gets you in and out pretty quick. The other thing is Costco could have calendar girls, Sam's could have........

    I think Ikea would be a no brainer for Norman. Costco? Maybe....or Edmond.

    :shocked: :lookaroun Really?!?! This rumor got started here a couple years back IIRC and got my hopes up only to have them dashed in the end. :(

    I really, really, really want a Costco here in Oklahoma ...:hyper: Let us all light a candle ... :hyper: Maybe that will help the life forces get it done this time! :hyper: :drunk2:
