TULSA -- Tulsa city leaders announced Monday Costco is coming to the Tulsa area.
Mayor Dewey Bartlett and Tulsa City Councilor Phil Lakin said the new retail development will be the first Costco to come to Oklahoma.
The store is set to be built at 103rd and Memorial and open by summer of 2015.
“To have Costco in the Tulsa market is a homerun for our city as the lifeblood of core services for cities across the state are based on retail sales and sales tax," Bartlett said. "This development should add to Tulsa’s tax base and continue our mission of bringing jobs and opportunities to Tulsans.”
City officials said Monday that the store is expected to bring 200 jobs to the area.
Officials said efforts to bring a Costco to Tulsa began more than two years ago.
