After a few months of administrative hurdles, Davenport council gave the final go-ahead for a new Costco store near the Elmore Ave/53rd Street intersection.

The new store will be over 150,000 square feet and include a gas station.

According to a report in the Dispatch-Argus, the new Costco is expected to employ between 150 and 20 people. Wages for a cashier start at around $13.50 an hour, but after five years many employees average a $22.50/hr wage.

Groundbreaking is expected this fall with the store opening in summer of 2018.
