BELLEVUE, WI (WTAQ) - The doors have finally been opened to Costco's newest warehouse in the village of Bellevue.
The 148,000 square foot store is Costco's 5th in Wisconsin, but first in the northern half of the Badger State.
"We needed something on the east side and I'm so glad a nice, big store like Costco has moved in," says Gracie Swagel, who lives in Bellevue.
A ribbon cutting featuring Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach and Bellevue Village President Craig Beyl helped usher in this new era of retail.
"They have good products and I know a lot of people I've talked to love coming here to Costco," says June Anderson of Pembine.
This location, according to store officials, will feature a variety of specialty departments, including a gas station, along with bakery, meat, produce and deli areas. It will also have an optical department, one-hour photo, pharmacy, tire center, hearing aid center, food court, travel center and a fine wine and liquor department.
