Finally, on Wednesday March 18, 2015 at 6:00 pm, Governor Rolando Zapata Bello will personally inaugurate the new Costco Wholesale Store, located on calle 3-B, #243(x 20-A) y 60 Norte, Colonia Revolución; right next to Plaza Galerias Merida.

The new Costco will be starting operations on Thursday March 19, 2015 at 9:00am

This facility has been built on a 4 hectares (approximately 6 acres) area that used to belong to the company known as “Tejidos de Henequén”.

 This Costco will be the first in the world with a real “cenote” within its premises .

The Cenote was discovered in the parking lot during the construction works.

This sinkhole not only was rescued by Costco, but it was also embellished and preserved covering the exterior with carved stone, and building a stair and a bridge so visitors can admire this natural attraction.

As we all know, Costco Wholesale Corporation is an American membership-only warehouse club that provides a wide selection of merchandise.

As of 2014, it is the second largest retailer in the United States and the third largest in the world.
