New Stores Coming Soon

I was so excited to vist the new Costco store in Maine on opening day. Maine has never had a Costco before. In fact, whenever visiting Maine, if you want to shop at Costco, you have to drive to Nashua, New Hampshire or Danvers, Massachusetts.

Also, I was thrilled when Target finally opened in Maine.

Now if we can just get Aldi to open a store there so I don’t have to drive to Portsmouth, New Hampshire to shop there, that would be great.

New stores coming soon

Anyway, this is a long way of saying I know that I’m not the only brand-loyal shopper who loves to learn when a new store will be opening near them.

In fact, with all I’ve written about Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack on this blog, I’ve had readers write to ask if I knew of new Nordstroms that would be opening soon.

So, I decided to put together this list of stores that will be opening locations in the coming year. Then, as time goes on, and I learn of more stores setting up shop near you, I’ll update this list.

Finally, I’ve arranged this list in alphabetical order by brand. Then, I’ve put in the city/town and state where the new stores will be. And if I know the expected opening date, I’ve added that, too.

Aldi stores opening this year

Whenever Aldi is getting ready to open a new location, they’ll offer a “sneak peek” day in advance of that opening. This gives local shoppers a chance to check out the store before its official first day.

For example, last January Aldi opened a new store in Bradenton, Florida. However, the month before, the store held one of those sneak peek events.

Future Costco locations

I’d mentioned my excitement about the Costco in Maine. I took this picture of a very happy me on opening day in Scarborough, Maine.

Costco Membership Deal via Groupon

The best deal on a Costco Membership right now is through Groupon. When you sign up, you’ll get your one-year membership plus a $40 Costco Digital Shop Card for free.

In case you didn’t know, the Costco Shop Card is the store’s gift card. You can use it in store or online.

This offer is for new Costco memberships only or for former Costco members whose membership expired more than 18 months ago. So, if you’ve moved, there wasn’t a Costco nearby and you let your membership lapse for more than 18 months, you’re good to go to sign up for this deal again!

Also, you can avoid the lines at your Costco location by signing up for this Groupon Costco deal. This was the crowd at the new Costco in Maine near where I live. Yikes!

Terms and Conditions

  • After purchase you’ll receive an email from Costco confirming your membership details. To pick up your membership card, stop by the membership counter at any Costco location and bring a copy of that email with your photo ID. Incentive will be emailed within 2 weeks after sign-up to qualifying members.
  • You’re receiving a One-Year Costco Gold Star Membership
  • A membership card for the Primary Cardholder and one additional Household Card for anyone living at the same address, over the age of 16
  • A $40 Digital Costco Shop Card (valid at Costco locations and Costco.com)
  • Valid only for new members and those whose previous memberships (Primary and Household) have been expired for at least 18 months or more.
  • Please allow up to two hours to receive your confirmation email from Costco. You must have either your Costco or Groupon confirmation email to receive your physical membership card at a Costco location.
  • A physical membership card is not required to shop online or receive your incentives.
  • Incentive includes a $40 Digital Costco Shop Card
  • Digital Costco Shop Card will be emailed within 2 weeks after sign-up to qualifying members.
  • Digital Costco Shop Card will be emailed to the email address provided by the Primary Member at time of sign-up.
  • Not valid for the renewal of an existing Costco membership.
  • To purchase this package, you must be 18 years of age or over, and agree to Costco’s Membership Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy.
  • All sales final.
  • $40 Digital Costco Shop Card is not redeemable for cash, except as required by law. Digital Costco Shop Cards are not accepted at Costco Gas Stations, Car Washes, or Food Court Kiosks.

Again, this a Groupon-only deal for a Costco membership.

Other warehouse club memberships

Perhaps you prefer to shop at another warehouse club because it is more convenient to where you live than Costco is. Good news: Both BJs and Sam’s Club have Groupon deals right now for memberships. Plus, both tend to have gas stations where members can get a cheaper price when filling up the gas tank.

Five Below stores coming soon

I can thank my daughters for turning me onto the awesomeness that is Five Below. From movie theater-size candy to inexpensive hand weights for exercise, I guarantee you’ll find something to buy at Five Below.

When I first shopped at Five Below, it was at the store in Newtown, Pennsylvania. Then, when I lived at the Jersey Shore, we would shop at the Brick, New Jersey location.

After that we moved to Western Pennsylvania, so I would need to go to Butler, PA to shop. Now we’ve settled in Southern Maine, and the closest Five Below to us is in Newington, New Hampshire.

In fact, it was on my last visit to that Five Below location that I went to see what kind of new workout equipment they had. I’m looking to pump up my Peloton room. I was thrilled to see this dumbbell rack, something I’ve had on my wish list.

New Five Below locations

I don’t mind driving to get to Five Below. However, I would like to drive less. Maybe you would, too. Well, the good news is that there are plenty of new Five Below locations opening soon, and a bunch more that have recently opened. I’ve outlined them all below.

Trader Joe’s store locations opening soon

At one time you could suggest locations where you’d like to see Trader Joe’s open a store. However, when I was researching this article about new Trader Joe’s stores, I no longer saw that link for suggestions.

However, in the Trader Joe’s FAQ, they ask you to email them to suggest stores. So maybe that’s where it ended up.

Anyway, as of right now, there are only three planned new Trader Joe’s locations. They are in the following places:

  • Murrietta
  • Mission Viejo

Michigan

  • East Lansing

Wawa locations coming soon

I spent nearly two decades living in Wawa land. Then, when we moved to Western Pennsylvania, I had to get used to the Sheetz convenience store instead.

If you know anything about convenience store competitions, the one between Wawa fans and Sheetz fans is fierce. Think Eagles vs Steelers.

Anyway, I know that some readers want to know about Wawa stores opening this year. So, I’ve put together this list here.

New Wawa store locations opening

Believe it or not, Wawa hasn’t announced any new locations for 2023 nor any Grand Openings. If that changes, I’ll update this section.

Can you name these famous store brand logos?

Final thoughts on new stores coming soon

Are there any other retail brands that you love and want to know if there are new store locations coming soon? If so, please post a comment and let me know.

  1. Hi, I just found your very good site. You listed a possible new store in St. John, MO. But that would only be 3.5 miles (7 minutes) from the Costco in University City, MO that opened fall of 2022. I would be very surprised if Costco built another store in the St. Louis area that close to an existing store. I could be wrong, of course. I sure wish they would build one in Springfield, IL or even across the river from St. Louis in Edwardsville, IL. There is a new Amazon distribution center in Edwardsville, a university, and a growing area. Perfect for Costco. (And me.)

    By the way, it drives me crazy that Coscto sells the wonderful Sanders caramels in DARK chocolate and MILK chocolate…but not both in the same store. I think they would get a lot more sales if they offered both flavors in all stores. Not everyone likes dark and vice-versa. See what you can do about fixing that, haha. Anyway, all the best.
