A highly anticipated store began breaking ground in Albemarle County on Wednesday afternoon.
Costco leaders were in Albemarle Co. today to talk about the site now under construction.
When it opens, about 200 people will work at the new retailer.
"They have one of the highest employer retention rates of all the retailers in the entire country so people are very happy they stay there a long time,” says Brad Dumont, developer. “They pay their employees very well and are known for great customer service."
The new Costco is scheduled to open in Albemarle Co. next year.
