CostCo question

Can anyone find out at any of your business websites how many CostCo stores are supposed to be opening in the Chicagoland area in thext 12-18 months.

Im having a hard time finding their growth plans here for some reason.

Anyone?

Here's a short blurb from TheStreet.com:

Some analysts concur. Linda Kristiansen of UBS Warburg estimates the saturation level at 85%. Nearly half of all U.S. households now have a membership at one of the three primary clubs, estimated Mark Miller of William Blair in a research note issued on Friday.

"While (Costco) management remains optimistic about its opportunity to expand its store base, and the company is positioned to gain share, we believe the domestic unit growth opportunity in this retail channel will be constrained long term by the relatively high degree of existing member penetration," said Miller in his note.

Dude, my dad goes there EVERY DAY, I am not kidding. Him and his friend who are both out of work, they go there to pass the time. It really kills me that I am the spawn of the man who I KNOW all the cashiers must laugh at. mwahahahaa.

Seriously, EVERY DAY.
