Costco To Build Store In Bellevue

The Village of Bellevue has received an application from Costco Wholesale Corporation requesting approval to build a new store along CTH GV (Monroe Road) near State Highway 172.

The plans include the construction of an approximately 150,000 square foot store and a fueling station. The new store will feature a tire center, indoor food court and bakery. Costco is a membership warehouse providing brand name products at wholesale prices. This will be the fifth Costco Store in Wisconsin and the first location in northeast Wisconsin. It is anticipated that the new store will add approximately 200 full and part-time jobs.

To facilitate this project, the Village and County are partnering to reconstruct County Road GV from Allouez Avenue to State Highway 172 during the 2013 construction season. County Executive, Streckenbach worked to move up this project from 2014 to meet the needs of this new store.

“The Village of Bellevue is excited to welcome the new Costco Store to our community. As a pro-development and business friendly community we are happy to add a new business that will spur future commercial growth in this area. The new store will be a benefit to our Village and the region as there are many people in the Green Bay area who travel to the Costco stores in the Madison and Milwaukee areas” Craig Beyl, Village President.

“The Village’s Community Development Department has worked diligently with the developer, property owners, Brown County as well as other key stakeholders to get this project to this point. We look forward to a grand opening of the new Costco Store in Fall of 2013” Aaron Oppenheimer, Village Administrator.
