Costo hits Manhattan, starting today

Costco Manhattan

Costco Manhattan

We passed this on the highway yesterday and wondered when it was going to open. The answer is today, apparently.

Part of the article from the New York Post:

Manhattan bulks up, Costco style

Need 64 ounces of soy sauce ($4.89), 128 ounces of Hellmann’s mayonnaise ($10.59) or 80 ounces of Hidden Valley Ranch ($8.89)?

Probably not.

But starting today, if you’re ever in a pinch and want three pounds of almonds ($9.69), five liters of olive oil ($19.99) or 192 ounces of organic milk ($8.99), there’s a one-stop shop a short subway ride uptown, just waiting to fulfill your bulk-buy needs.

The first Manhattan Costco, located on 116th Street off the FDR, throws open its doors to shoppers at 8 a.m. today.

Featuring more than 105,000 square feet of selling floor, a selection of more than 3,500 different products, a massive fresh-food department, a pharmacy, a doctor-staffed optical department, a hearing aid area, a photo center and a food court, it’s the embodiment of all our big-box suburban shopping fantasies.
