Costco coming to west Little Rock
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported today that the wholesale retail giant Costco’s plans for development of 31.81 acres at Chenal Parkway and Kirk Road in Little Rock were approved by city planning commissioners. This will be the first Costco store in the state of Arkansas. Plans include a more than 150,000 square foot warehouse with a tire shop, optical shop, and depending on licensing, a liquor store. The development also will have a free-standing gas station and outparcels. We at Kelley Commercial Partners are excited about this news and look forward to welcoming them to the market.
