Second Louisiana Costco to Open in Baton Rouge

CityBusiness reports that Costco is opening their second Louisiana location in Baton Rouge, and will receive $7 million in incentives from the parish. The East Baton Rouge Parish recently agreed to a deal that will pay for $5.5 million in road improvements, to alleviate traffic backups in the area, and $1.5 million toward the $4.5 million cost of tearing down the former Coca-Cola bottling facility on Dawnadele Ave. where Costco is planning to open a 150,000-square-foot store.

Costco’s first store in Louisiana will be on the 14.7-acre site formerly occupied by the Carrollton Shopping Center on South Carrollton Avenue near I-10 in New Orleans.
