Before November 15 Lubbock residents had to drive about 300 miles to Albuquerque, or 315 miles to Forth Worth, to shop at Costco.
Now the 21st Costco in Texas is open for business at 6020 34th Street in Lubbock.
The brand new membership warehouse has provided 200 jobs for Lubbock residents as well as goods and services for cardholders.
One Costco member from Clovis, Brad Heath, was excited to travel 100 miles to be the first customer in line at the new Lubbock location.
He said before the Lubbock store, he would drive three and a half hours to shop at Costco in Albuquerque.
Fox 34's Brittany Price talks to Heath about why he's such a dedicated customer.
