It took a while for the infrastructure work to be completed, but the new Costco store at Fischer Crossings just over the Coweta County line from Peachtree City is well-underway. The 157,000 sq. ft. warehouse club store is expected to open in August.
With construction progressing rapidly, the 157,000 sq. ft. Costco warehouse club store on northeast corner of Hwy. 34 and Fischer Road, approximately a mile from Peachtree City, is expected to open in August.

The wholesale store is expected to employ 300 people and is aiming for annual sales of $200 million.

Representing the Fischer Crossings property owner, Herman Neese at the June 18 meeting of the Coweta County Commission said the wholesale store is expected to employ 300 people and is aiming for annual sales of $200 million.
The northeast corner of Fischer Crossings will also be home to a 3-story Kaiser Permanente medical office building totaling 85,000 sq. ft. Neese said Kaiser will employ approximately 300 people, with average salaries of $90,000.
Also recently approved, and situated immediately north of Costco, was the Fortress Ventures retirement community featuring independent living, assisted living and memory care.
Neese said the $50 million retirement community project will include 162 units and will provide 300 jobs.
Also slated for the northeast corner of Fischer Road and Hwy. 34 are a number of outparcel restaurants which will likely announce in the coming months.
The new developments will join NCG Theaters and Wendy’s restaurant, situated on the east side of the northeast quadrant, and Sam’s Club which is located across Fischer Road from the Costco site.
