Loves Park, IL (WIFR) -- The countdown to Costco is on. In just over two months Loves Park is expecting to open the doors of its newest retailer.
Loves park mayor Greg Jury says the project is on time. Right now crews are busy working on the interior of the building.
Costco has already starting its hiring process and plans to employ nearly 200 people. Jury says this project has been years in the making and believes it will help bring more retailers to the area. The grand opening is expected to take place august 23.
“Very excited,” said Jury. “I mean there's a lot of people in the Winnebago and Boone County area, thousands of people actually that have Costco cards that are travelling to Lake in the Hills or up to Madison and they're very excited that they can come to Loves Park and spend their money locally.”
