PHOENIX – Costco is coming to Queen Creek next year.

The popular membership retail chain has been approved for the northwest corner of Ellsworth and Queen Creek roads, developer The Legacy Group said Tuesday in a press release.

“I am excited for what this will do for the town of Queen Creek,” Carson Brown of The Legacy Group said in the release.

“It is one of the fastest growing towns/cities in Arizona, and there is so much growth in the East Valley right now.”

Queen Creek’s population of 68,500 is expected to grow to 91,000 in 2026, The Legacy Group said.

The warehouse retailer is targeting an opening date of fall/winter 2022, according to the release. The Legacy Group said the deal with Costco was two years in the making.

“We are very excited to have Costco come to Queen Creek; it is a business that is highly desired by our residents,” Doreen Cott, the town’s economic development director, told KTAR News 92.3 FM in an email Wednesday.

“The interest in Queen Creek demonstrates our strong demographics and a strong trade area, we look forward to the continued interest in our area.”

The Town Council approved fee waivers and public infrastructure improvements during a February meeting, and a conditional-use permit for a Costco fueling station in May.

The Costco is going into a development called Queen Creek Crossing that will feature a variety of regional and national retailers.
