Costco to Build Distribution Center; Create 300 Jobs

9 Dec, 2007

National retailer Costco is planning to build a warehouse distribution center near New Market.

Frederick County's economic development director Laurie Boyer says the half-million square foot building is expected to create about 300 jobs.

The distribution center will serve Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. It will be built at the Intercoastal Industrial Park.

The county planning commission has granted preliminary approval for the facility. The commission must also approve new roads at the industrial park needed for the building.

Truck traffic will use Interstates 70 and 270 to travel to and from the building.
