Verona Costco store opens doors

New location marks warehouse chain's third location in Madison area

VERONA, Wis. — The long-awaited Costco store in Verona opened its doors to customers Wednesday morning.

Local officials and Costco representatives took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony before the store opened at 8 a.m. The store, located at the corner of County Highways M and PB on the city’s southeast side, hosted special deals and products to mark the occasion.

“The Madison area really loves Costco, and I think there’s a really high demand here, especially in this Verona area,” Kayla Campillo a Costco regional marketing manager, said. “The area was excited to bring us in and we’re excited to be here.”

Costco submitted plans to build a 161,000-square-foot store and gas station in the city in mid-2020.

The new store is the warehouse club’s third in the Madison area. The first location opened in Middleton in August 2008, and a second store in Sun Prairie opened in late 2012.
