Work continues on the Costco in Surprise on June 26, 2020.

Surprise is about to get its own Costco.

Costco is opening on the southwest corner of Sarival Avenue and Waddell Road in September, according to the company’s website.

This is the first time the company has acknowledged its arrival in the city, even though it has been planning on coming for more than a year, and the building has been taking shape since this winter.

“We are looking forward to becoming a part of the Surprise community and our opening later this year in September,” a company spokesperson wrote in an email to The Arizona Republic earlier this week.

Surprise residents and city officials are looking forward to the opening, as well.

Costco has been the most desired retailer in the city since 2015, according to a city survey. The city’s marketing team spent a few years trying to attract the attention of the retailer, by throwing a birthday party for the company and pulling other publicity stunts.

The new location will have a gas station, tire center, bakery, pharmacy, outdoor food court, photo center, optical center and hearing aid center, according to the project proposal.
