Leggett Helps Celebrate Grand Opening of Wheaton Costco

Wednesday, April 10, 2013; 7:45 a.m.

Westfield Shoppingtown Wheaton, University Blvd. and Viers Mill Rd., (at site of former Hechtís store)


Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett will join with Costco executives and employees, Westfield representatives and local residents to celebrate the ribbon cutting and grand opening of the new Costco at Westfield Shoppingtown Wheaton.

The project was spurred by a $4 million investment ($2 million in FY12 and $2 million in FY13) from the County’s Economic Development Fund to Westfield to assist with site acquisition and construction of the new Costco, which is located at the site of the former Hecht’s store. The Costco project supported several hundred construction jobs and leveraged more than $50 million in private investment. Costco will employ some 475 new, permanent employees.

Costco is a membership warehouse club dedicated to bringing its members the best possible prices on quality, brand-name merchandise. The new Wheaton store is the second in Montgomery County. There is also a Costco in Gaithersburg.
