ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of Costco Cos. Inc. to open a store in Harlem, New York City. Costco is close to signing a lease for a Manhattan store in East Harlem. An East Harlem location would be the first Manhattan location for the Costco franchise. While Costco is expected to serve Harlem, locals have expressed mixed feelings, adding that its presence could hurt small businesses. Kenneth Knuckles, president of the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, is extremely optimistic that jobs will be available for East Harlem residents.
