Coral Springs residents were excited to learn that one of their favorite stores was opening a location in their town. On Thursday, February 7th the company opened its doors at 4621 Coral Ridge Drive.
With locations in Boca Raton and Pompano Beach, it was time for Coral Springs to get a Costco store of its own.

The 156,000-square-foot building has many of the same items you can see at your local Costco:
- An independent doctor of optometry;
- Tire center;
- Hearing aid center; and
- Food court
One of my favorite features is at the Food Court center. There’s a Self-Checkout Kiosk available to its members. This makes ordering during your lunch hour or while picking up a few items a breeze.
The Coral Springs location is the 8th of the company’s warehouses to open in South Florida, and the 27th to open in the state.
At checkout, I chatted with cashier Tay who is excited to hear the company is expanding. “I went to college and I’m glad I found a job with Costco,” she said. “There’s so much opportunity, and hearing that we’ve opened up another store makes me happy about the future.”
Tay expressed how thrilled she gets whenever she hears news of expansion from Costco. “It gives me chills to hear about Costco and what they’re doing. Knowing that there’s always room for growth in this company.”
Shopping Tips For Costco Newbies
Sign up for the Costco Executive Membership. It’s double the price of the basic one, but you get 2% cash back on what you spend at the end of the year.
Make use of their Food Court. It’s no secret that food shopping can make you hungry, and you might need to buy some items before you can head home and make a decent meal for your family. Choose some items from the food court at Costco to help sustain you and your little one while you finish up your shopping. Pizza is always a hit with our boys — so is frozen yogurt!
Think of others. One of the perks of buying in bulk is that you can split items with family and friends. After all, sharing is caring!
Plan ahead for upcoming family events. Get excited about summer with patio must-haves from Costco. Everything you need for your dream backyard is in one section.
Download the Costco mobile app. Make a list of the things you need from Costco, find current offers, order products with your photos on them and check warehouse information from your phone. All this can be done with the Costco app.
Don’t forget to stock up on everyday essentials. Toilet paper and milk are two of the essential items we stock up on from our local Costco. What goes best with milk? Cookies!
