The Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) confirmed they have had discussions with Costco regarding store expansion within the City and County Denver. Susan Liehe, spokesperson at OED says at this time, Costco has not indicated any specific store location additions. However, OED staff continues to work with Costco and other retailers to expand retail options within the city.
“One of the clear hindrances for a big box store in the City of Denver is the space, so Stapleton or Northfield are exactly the kinds of candidates that would be perfect for it. I don’t know that there’s a place that would meet their criteria,” said Liehe, but she acknowledged that there are some bigger lots available north of I-70 in Stapleton than in many other parts of the city.
Tom Gleason, vice president for public relations at Forest City said they have no additional information on a Costco coming to Northfield.
