PORTLAND (WGME) — Maine’s first Costco is opening at The Downs in less than a month.
The nearly 161,000 square-foot store with a gas station opens on November 17.
Costco says they’ve been working on the Scarborough location for more than a year and are opening a year ahead of schedule.
With construction nearly done, all that’s left is to fill the shelves.
Developers behind Scarborough Downs say the store is a big part of the area’s greater plans.
“It’s a key anchor for this whole project, but most importantly it’s a huge win for the consumers in the state of Maine,” Scarborough Downs Managing Director and Developer Peter Michaud said. “Costco is a great, great one of the best Fortune 100 companies. To have them in the state of Maine, we’re proud.”
Currently the closest Costco store is in Nashua, New Hampshire.
