If we can’t have a Wegmans, at least give us a Costco!

To the Editor:
I have been browsing through the opinions as I check daily for a Costco update that they will break ground to build.

It is disheartening to me that there are so many people who do not see the benefit of this store. Costco pays employees well; offers great benefits; and provides quality food, products, and service in their stores. I do not understand the fight to add such a robust opportunity to this neighborhood.

I hope that the fight continues and we get a Costco. I would consider moving to the specific area Costco is being built in if I could walk to it!

What a missed opportunity for these folks to have high quality food that is seriously lacking in this area of New York State. If we can’t have a Wegmans, at least give us a Costco!
