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.

Food shopping is my workout!

The 156,000-square-foot building has many of the same items you can see at your local Costco:

  • An independent doctor of optometry;
  • Pharmacy;
  • Tire center;
  • Hearing aid center; and
  • Food court.

said it’s just like the Costco in Canada.

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

A baby carrier comes in handy for busy moms, even at Costco.

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!

  1. Being a Costco fan myself I can give you a million list of things to buy at Costco that you won’t regret and you won’t find anywhere else. For once you won’t find a better sauce that the Kirkland pesto sauce; I’ll even bet money on it! Their Kirkland organic orange juice; Hands down the best! And the kids individually packed to-go apple sauce pouches. Well, they say it’s for kids but I even eat it as a snack myself. And on your way out, get the chicken bake. Yummy in my tummy!

  2. Coral Springs must be extra happy to have that bad boy there. Costco is a great store with awesome prices. Plus, they have everything in existence pretty much.

  3. That is wonderful news and I am sure so many people will take advantage of Costco. Nice to go and stock up and they have wonderful food selection as well as many other items.

  4. Whoa! 156k square foot is too big. I think one day isn’t enough to explore the entire building entirely. There’s lot of stuff so it will be really helpful to have a shopping list before going.

  5. I’ve heard such great things about this store. We don’t have one nearby, sadly. If we did, I’d so go! I keep hoping they will build one near my house.

  6. I shop at Sam’s more only because it’s right up the street from me and to get to Costco we have to go across town. Although there are things I like purchasing from there better and they have things I can’t find in other stores. I may end up purchasing a membership now that my husband has a new job because we can afford to shop there more than in the past.

  7. Getting the Executive Membership could possibly pay for itself, if you’re a frequent shopper at Costco. We love shopping there, as they have just about everything we need, and, for a family of 5, it just makes more sense.
