September 2008
Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);9/29/2008, Vol. 25 Issue 39, p19
The article reports on the closure of the Costco store on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 5, 2008 for conversion into a Costco Business Center which is scheduled to reopen in early 2009. The business center will be targeted toward clients although anyone with a Costco card will be able to shop there. Consumer-oriented departments such as optometry, food court, home electronics will disappear and taking their place will be a counter for copying and computer services and more packaged foods.
