Costco and Cabelas In Albany
With recent reports of Latham getting a Sonic it doesn't seem to be able to get much better. However with the possibility of also having a Costco and a Cabela's, to quote Charlie Sheen, "Winning".
Times Union broke a story on friday that talks about Colonie getting a Costco and a Cabela's right near each other. The proposed spot for these retailers is right on Albany-Shaker Road across from the Times Union building. I'm not sure which store I find more interesting, Cabela's virtually will have no competition in the general area. Costco though will be dead in between two separate competitors. Sams Club in Latham and BJ's right behind Target on Central Ave. I Feel Costco will have a clear advantage!!! They stack their TV's like this.. I hope they don't move them around with a forklift like this..
Cabela's has apparently been looking to find land near Albany International Airport which this fits the bill. Costco wanted a spot right off the northway. Yet again perfect placement. The Colonie Zoning Board of Appeals held a public hearing on thursday says Times Union in where they assure us they will update this as more information comes in. I really hope this becomes reality.
