Construction on the Costco Wholesale store on Route 1 is progressing and on track for a May 2013 opening.
SFDC Marketing and Communications Director David Ben told Patch that construction is on track.
"The ground is being allowed to properly settle and the timeline of a May opening is still on track," Ben said. "The building does not take very long at all to build because it is a warehouse."
The store will be located at 7940 Richmond Hwy. in Alexandria.
