IDAHO FALLS – A year after city officials announced Costco was coming to Idaho Falls, crews with Lydig Construction are busy at work on the 150,000-square-foot building northwest of the roundabout on Hitt and Lincoln Road.

City spokesman Bud Cranor tells EastIdahoNews.com construction has not been impacted by COVID-19 and everything is moving forward as planned.

“We’ve been told construction is proceeding fine with no problems,” Cranor says. “All of the permits and the whole process is proceeding as normal.”

The building was originally scheduled for completion sometime in August. Cranor says an exact date has not been determined and Costco declined to provide additional details.

“It is our company policy to not comment regarding future Costco warehouses until we are ready to share details about the new location,” a company spokesperson wrote in response.

Costco construction began in September. It is expected to bring more than 100 jobs to the area with salaries starting at $15/hour. Positions will also include full medical and dental benefits.
