Wheaton Costco Opening Date Moves Forward
The Costco at Westfield Wheaton will open a few days earlier than planned this spring.
The Costco in Wheaton has a new opening date, according to a spokeswoman for Costco: April 10.
This Wednesday opening date is a few days earlier than the one Costco announced at the end of January. Costco's originally scheduled October 2012 opening at the mall in Wheaton was delayed because of unspecified construction issues.

Westfield Wheaton has already had Costco signage in place around the mall property for months, with a "coming soon" notice affixed. The membership warehouse store will inhabit the anchor spot previously occupied by a Hecht's department store.
After the delays in the fall, the Costco store was expected to open in March or April, according to a transcript of an earnings call by the Costco Wholesale Corporation CEO.
