Costco opened Oct. 25, 2022 at 8 a.m. in MARKETS at OLIVE development in University City and the Christmas rush is here already. People are already Christmas shopping and the lines are long. Even though Costco is packed inside the store and out in the parking lot, people are taking their time so it is not that bad of an experience actually.

Costco is the anchor store and part of Market at Olive, a new retail development still under construction in University City, MO. at I-170 and Olive Blvd. The jobs are estimated to be over 700 after all the stores are opened.

An Inside Look at Costco University City, MO, October 30, 2022.

The multiple commercial projects will be done in phases that will end up covering both sides of Olive Boulevard east of Interstate 170.

Companies that are involved with the development include the best in St. Louis: Clayco, CRG, Seneca, Holland and Hutkin Properties Group.

    Why every Costos are in MO?? does metro east area not matter to Costco?

  4. I live in IL, metro STL and have shopped Costco for 10 years. I’d shop there much more often without a 2 hour total drive time. Build in Edwardsville!!!

  5. I’m concerned about all the
    traffic the Cosco and all the retail etc. will bring to that
    intersection at Olive and 170. Are there plans to address that.

    1. Hi Jean, The traffic is going to increase a lot, sorry to say. I don’t know what they are going to do about the traffic and I don’t see any more lanes being added. One thing is for sure is that we will all need to calculate extra time when driving through this part of town. Thank you for commenting and have a nice day.
