LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Exactly one month from Monday, the doors to the first Costco store in Arkansas will open for business.
The world’s third largest retailer will open shop at the corner of Chenal Parkway and Kirk Road in Little Rock on July 21 at 8 a.m.
Crews on Monday could be seen working on external fixtures at the main store building and wrapping construction on the Costco Gas islands. It appeared as there were still sections of the exterior walls that needed to be placed.
Last Wednesday, the store was awarded a retail liquor license by the Arkansas Alcohol Beverage Control board.
Costco already had a license to sell beer and wine but will now be able to operate as a full liquor store under the Costco name.
