WJOL is confirming that Costco is coming to Plainfield/Joliet. The membership only warehouse retailer will build a new store at the interchange of I-55 and Route 30 on the Plainfield and Joliet border. Both municipalities are being tight-lipped about the deal in deference to Costco who is expected to make the announcement soon.
The project will include not just the warehouse store but will also include other retail and restaurant opportunities. It is also understood that most of the development will take place within Plainfield’s boundary due to most of the land falling within their city limits. Currently the closest Costco Wholesale would either be located in Bolingbrook on Boughton Road or in Naperville on Route 59.
