Costco will open a membership warehouse in Bayonne on March 7.
The 148,000-square-foot warehouse is located at 21 Goldsborough Drive, part of the former Military Ocean Terminal. Plans for the store were initially last year announced
Previously, residents of the area had to drive approximately 13 miles northwest to Union, 9 miles southwest to Staten Island or 15 miles east to Brooklyn to shop at Costco.
“We are proud to be part of the boom of the city of Bayonne,” said Warehouse Manager Neil Lynch. “As we open, 500 condos are projected to go up in the area. Additionally, a high speed ferry is being built to take residents of Bayonne directly into Manhattan. This new Costco warehouse is one of many exciting projects for the local community.”
This new Costco location will feature a variety of specialty departments including a gas station, fresh bakery, fresh meat, fresh produce, optical department, pharmacy, tire center, and more.
The location will be Costco’s 20th warehouse in New Jersey, the 535th in the U.S., and 770th worldwide.
