From the City of Mt. Juliet:
The City of Mt. Juliet is excited to announce Costco Wholesale has submitted their Development Plan package to our Planning Department in hopes of soon bringing their store to Mt. Juliet.
Costco, a membership warehouse club, is dedicated to bringing their members the best possible prices on quality brand-name merchandise. They are also a multi-billion-dollar global retailer with warehouse club operations in eight countries.
“I am very happy to confirm the rumors are true that Costco plans to construct a store in Mt. Juliet, and I’m excited to welcome Costco to our community,” Mayor James Maness said. “We know that there has been a strong interest from our citizens in this store. I am positive that Costco will expand our retail base, bringing new customers to Mt. Juliet who will shop elsewhere while they are in town. This is not only a win for our local economy, but with one-half of the local portion of our sales tax going directly to our schools, this is a win for our school system as well.”
The City of Mt. Juliet is most excited for the citizens who have sought after this business for many years to come to our community. The arrival of Costco will also provide incredible economic value to the City of Mt. Juliet when it comes to generating local sales tax revenue that serves as the lifeblood for city operations.
“We have been recruiting Costco to come to MJ for many years at the request of our residents, and we are most thankful and excited that Costco has chosen MJ to build a new store,” Economic Development Director and City Manager Kenny Martin said.
Costco’s submittal included approximately 160,057 square feet of retail, including 24 fuel position/stations, and 34,920 square foot in-house delivery space. The project is proposed at the southwest corner of the future intersection of Rutland Drive and Legacy Point Boulevard.
“This is a very exciting and much anticipated project for the City of Mt. Juliet. I look forward to working with their development team as this development progresses in the planning process,” Planning Director Jennifer Hamblen said.
The project will be heard at the March 16, 2023 Planning Commission meeting as a recommendation item to the Board of Commissioners.
