UNITED STATES - Looking for updates on Costco’s continuously successful growth strategies? Look no further. With the club chain's footprint across the United States coming to a total of 600 warehouses, industry eyes are on three U.S. markets yet to welcome a Costco location.

According to Fox Business, the states still awaiting a Costco warehouse include Rhode Island, West Virginia, and Wyoming. Despite lacking locations in these states, the warehouse chain reported an increase in its membership during its second-quarter earnings call last month, the source noted.

In December 2023, Costco revealed plans to open a total of 31 locations throughout the duration of 2024

While Costco currently has plans to open a location in Rhode Island, some have speculated that one key factor determining the retailer’s expansion plans is population size, as well as employment, median household income, and projected population growth near potential warehouse locations.

We may also beg the question of whether or not Costco is waiting on those states to determine how it can be of value to these particular markets and maintain its competitive edge in the retail space.

At the end of 2023, Costco revealed plans to open a total of 31 locations throughout the duration of 2024. Will we soon see one of these markets pop up in those plans? ANUK will certainly be here to report.
