COSTCO OMAHA NEBRASKA WON’T BE ALONE FOR LONG

Costco Nebraska Number2Last year in July, I wrote about the Costco La Vista location that was potentially opening in 2016. Well, my predictions about the opening timeframe were correct! Construction for the new La Vista location is well under way, and it’s looking like an October/November opening.

I’m sure this is some welcome news for all of those living in the La Vista area as well as those currently shopping at the Costco Omaha location, which is the only Costco in Nevada in. This will be sure to free up some of the congestion that I experienced when I visited the Costco Omaha location last year.

When I visited the location I was surprised at how well maintained their building was. Costco typically has standards that are well above industry standards, but when any warehouse gets around its ten-year anniversary (October 18, 2017) things typically start to look just a bit dated.

One of the things that used to set this building apart was that their food court sold gelato, but I don’t think this is the case anymore. I believe that all Costco locations have quit selling the not so popular gelato. It really is a shame, I thought it was amazing, and where else can you get a massive gelato cone? If anyone knows a location that still sells the gelato, I would love to know in the comments below.

The Costco Omaha location not only looked great from a cleanliness perspective, but their merchandise was also well stocked and they had employees actively stocking and cleaning the whole time that I was there.

If you’re into overpriced high quality scotch, you can find some Kirkland Signature, 40-year-old single malt scotch for the low price of $699.99. I’m not a big scotch drinker, but from what I’ve been told, that’s actually a fantastic deal. If you looking to save a little bit of cash, you can settle for the Johnnie Walker Blue – King George V Edition – for only $499.99. Let’s be honest though, if you’re already spending $499.99, you might as well splurge for the Kirkland Signature $699.99 bottle.

Overall, the Costco Omaha location was a pleasure to visit, and I love the greater Omaha area. The store was clean, organized, and well stocked – and I wouldn’t expect anything less from a Costco. I only wish they still carried the gelato.

Now that Costco will be opening the new Costco La Vista Nebraska location, I’ll have to make a trip back to Nebraska to check it out.

    I can’t wait for the LaVista location to open. I will be working in the photo department. I love helping customers and I have been a photographer for over 30 years.

    Good luck with your new job! It’s a good thing Costco started doing the full photo departments again. I should be making it down there for V.I.P night / opening day. Have a good opening!
