Costco Expands Headquarters in Washington and Opens a New Store in Illinois
ISSAQUAH, WA - The past year has brought on an expansion frenzy for retail giant Costco. In October of 2018, the company received approval from the city of Issaquah, Washington, to make a significant expansion to its headquarters. Costco has been quiet on the matter since then, but recent reports note that the retailer is moving forward with its plans as additional land was recently acquired. This is followed by multiple new store openings, including the recently-announced Naperville, Illanois, location.
