Costco in talks to open new store in Logan City

WHOLESALE retail giants Costco are in talks with the Logan City Council to open a store in the city, Mayor Pam Parker has confirmed.

Cr Parker remained tight-lipped on the issue when ABC 612 Breakfast host Spencer Howson asked her if the US company was scouting for potential sites in Logan.

"We have had confidential discussions with Costco, Spencer. That's all I'll say at this time," Cr Parker said on Monday morning.

A council spokeswoman said Costco had been in talks with the City of Logan for several years, but no formal development applications had been made.

"Council has been proactively promoting the City of Logan, over a long period of time, as a potential location to hopefully accommodate Costco's future expansion plans into the broader region," she said.
