I overheard someone talking today, saying that she saw a Costco warehouse construction site somewhere a bit north of Columbia. However, I missed the street names. Anyone else know of this?

I heard it was in Harbison area. Apparently, they've already broken ground.

Yes, there is a Coscos coming in Harbison. I work with underground locating and have been told where it will be going. It will be off Park Terrace Dr. where currently Staples, a Consignment Shop and the old Roadhouse Restaurant are now. It will be directly across from Sam's. Staples is moving to a new location near the recently moved McDonald's. There is also a Bridgestone/Firestone tire and car repair place being bulit in this are too. Hope that helps.

Kent, do you have any more details on Costco...like a timeline for constuction? Costco's website shows new stores opening through 2012 so I guess this is kind of far off, huh?

Someone at the new Lexus Dealership on Killian Rd. in northeast Columbia at I-77 mentioned that they are building a Costco right next to Lexus...

Policies discriminating against people with criminal backgrounds are often illegal, too.

Employers generally cannot discriminate on the basis of a conviction record unless the conviction substantially relates to the circumstances of the job. Whether a conviction is substantially related to a particular job is often a difficult one to answer. One of the key determinations is if the nature of the conviction creates an unreasonable risk of reoffending. In some cases, the answer is easy: a theft conviction is likely to be found substantially related to a job that involves independently handling money.

We have noted that SC employers posting public help wanted ads are now often stating that any criminal convictions bar applicants without exception to what exactly the conviction pertained too. Employers are also using old convictions from as far back as 15 to 30 years to deny applicants employment. This is treading on very risky water and likey violates federal discrimination laws. This can also be why the unemployment rate stubbornly remains high in some areas where there are job openings.

I am a member of Costco.....joined about 8 years ago. I live in Columbia and have been waiting like everyone else for a Costco to come to Columbia.

I finally emailed them last week and here is the response I got back:

Dear (took my name out),

We appreciate you taking the time to email Costco Wholesale.

While currently we do not have any public information regarding plans to open a Costco in the Columbia South Carolina area, our real estate department is continually looking for ideas for new locations around the country and around the world.

We will forward your suggestion to our Real Estate Department so they are aware of your interest.

Thank you,

Sue G
Costco Wholesale Corporation

It looks like for the time being we will not be getting a Costco in Columbia.

Costco is NOT coming to Harbison. The Park Terrace sit is the new location for Academy Sports.

I think this seems reliable! Wonder how long it will take though with all those trees? Now the silly traffic circle they have been spending so much time on at Piney Grove and Piney Woods makes a little more sense....I guess?
