There's a Costco in Enfield CT, and one rumored coming to Newington CT next to the Stop and Shop Plaza off Route 9.

If all goes well construction will start on a Costco near Target in New Britain, CT and the Westfarms Mall by Labor Day.

Ground was finally broken on Costco in New Britain, Connecticut next to Target by The Westfarms Mall. They hope to open in the Fall of 2015.

Rumors have been circulating for a while now that Costco may set up shop in the now-defunct Super Kmart in Southgate, Michigan. I don't know how accurate these may be, though...

They'll likely raze the building and build a new store from scratch. I don't think a Kmart building has the height restrictions that a warehouse club needs.

I have heard from many that out of the 3, its the best one. They offer a lot of better products than Sam's Club reason why Sam's is failing. The employees are nicer and will help you and they been rated a really good place to work for.

They are opening one in New Britain next to Target.

The layout is different. Sam's entrance/exit was located on the front wall, Costco's entrance/exit is usually found on the front corner of the building. Costco also has better quality products than Sam's Club.

Groceries, electronics, computers, clothing, toys, etc.

(Everything you find at a Costco is similar to what you'd find at a Sam's Club or BJ's Wholesale, except the brand names are different.)

thy are more well liked though. and I noticed that in places like Georgia and Illinios the only Costcos are in ATlanta and Chicago and all the other towns are upset about that.

Costco is doing very well in Canada:

Quote
Costco Wholesale Corp.’s same-store sales in Canada outpaced growth in all of the warehouse retailer’s other divisions in the second quarter.

They were up 8 percent at Costco in Canada and 3 percent in the U.S. and fell 2 percent in other international markets.

 At rival Walmart Canada, same-store sales rose 0.2 percent in the quarter ended Jan. 31.

I'm not surprised, especially with all the problems Sobeys is having in Western Canada.

Walmart Canada's same-store sales only rose 0.2 percent. I think people are deceived of the new so-called Supercenter format for smaller stores.

The usual small store is in the 90,000 sq.ft. range.  Most of them had the land to expand and eventually become a Supercenter.  However, what Walmart did for many of them is simply reconfigure the existing layout to add more groceries.  The result is that the majority of the store space is now supermarket and every other category has been reduced or removed!

I call that a fake Supercenter...  locally many people hate it.  It may explain why people are turning to the proven Costco format.

Positive comps are taking a beating in the US due to deflation, which impacts retail grocery pricing. Even Kroger posted negative comps, ending a more than decade-long streak. I assume it's the same situation in Canada.

The store has been replaced by a Home Depot.  That store later relocated to a new building nearby and the former Home Depot/Costco was divided and remodeled for Christmas Tree Shops and Bed,Bath & Beyond. 

The store was possibly demolished and then replaced by a new building for the two stores instead, I don't remember exactly.
