Senator Anwar Celebrates Beginning Work at Site of Future Costco in South Windsor

Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) joined South Windsor leaders to celebrate the start of work at the site in that town where a new Costco is now under construction. Discussed for several years and recently receiving approval from South Windsor’s Planning and Zoning Department, the Costco will see numerous new jobs brought to South Windsor through construction and, upon its completion, retail opportunities. Costco is already widely known for its policies of strong salaries for workers, with its starting pay at many stores at $16, well above the minimum wage.

“I’m very excited that the hard work needed to bring Costco to South Windsor, started a few years ago, has continued and I thank Mayor Andrew Paterna, Deputy Mayor Liz Pendelton and the entire South Windsor family including the Town Council, the Planning and Zoning Department, Inland and Wetlands and town employees for starting this work and making Costco part of our town,” said Sen. Anwar.

“I’m happy to welcome Costco and their warehouse store to South Windsor,” said Mayor Andrew Paterna. “It’s been a long project a long time coming, but a lot of people put in a lot of hours to make sure this project could happen in South Windsor. Welcome to Costco and thank you to all who worked on this project.”

Discussed for years, South Windsor has worked to bring Costco to its town, with the warehouse store building its new location in the Evergreen Walk complex. The store will include a gas station and company representatives said they have a goal to open it by the end of the year, bringing hundreds of jobs to the area.
