Costco ain't coming any time soon......

Was up at Costco/Cancun this morning and was talking to the manager. Before a Costco is built in Playa the company will be building two more in Mexico City, two more in Monterrey, one in Queretaro and one in Villahermosa...........then Playa will be considered . He said that their calculations show the ROI for the Monterrey stores will be four years but Playa could be at least seven years . So the bottom line is Costco/Playa is quite a ways down the road. So I guess we will have to continue to drive the hour or so to get to Costco but at least on the way home you can stop at Krispy Kreme for your glazed donut fix .

On a different note: I as well as all of my friends can not figure out how Sam's Club has manage to spend so much time and money remodeling their Playa store and managed to screw everything up . It was better before the remodel. Just another reason to head to Costco.

This is such disappointing news about Costco not coming sooner. I was just in Cancun to visit their Costco because I could not find any beach umbrellas in either Sam's or City Club but knew they would be in Costco and sure enough their they were along with Tommy Bahama beach chairs. Despise the drive every month but also get to visit Home Depot so all in all at least one does not need to drive all the way to Merida.

In the long run not having a Costco in Playa saves me a lot of money.

We'd still go into Cancun for Home Depot anyway, might as well do Costco on the way back. I don't mind Sam's or City Club but they're not on a par with Costco.

A blast from the past.
There is a post on FB (along with a photo) stating that a Costco is currently under construction in Playa.
North of town. Near Coca Cola. Pescadores?

EDIT: #FAKENEWS

Babaloo, since I started this thread about 4 years ago, at that time the manager of Costco/Cancun told me he thought that it would be in the vicinity of 7 years before Costco built in the Playa area. So that leaves 3 more years

Yep.
The photo posted looked familiar to me.
It's the Bodega Aurrera being built out towards Villas Del Sol.
I busted the thread
