Personally, I have a love/hate relationship with Costco. I love Costco for the deals and certain things I can get at the warehouse store. At the same time, Costco is an anxiety-inducing store. Particularly the Timnath location. The hoards of people in one place with carts feels like sheer chaos to me. I am hoping that with the opening of Costco in Longmont, that feeling subsides at the Timnath location.

Longmont's Costco location will be the 15th warehouse store in the state of Colorado and will have approximately 220 employees. Have a Costco membership and live or work in Longmont? If you are in need of a take of gas, you can already stop by the new Costco gas station in Longmont as the gas station is already open and operational.
