We have it pretty good here in Buffalo and Western New York, when it comes to food and groceries. We’re blessed to have two huge grocery store chains in Wegmans and Tops.

You go to other places around the country and they simply do not have giant grocery stores like that. However, something many areas do have is not in Western New York.

Coscto is one of the largest retailers in the world. The wholesale store is famous for its size and selection, and is the envy of many. Yet, there are not any in the Buffalo area.

That is, until now.

According to Stephen T Watson of The Buffalo News, Costco is officially coming to Amherst.

Watson reports that Amherst town supervisor Brian Kulpa confirmed the Costco location coming to the old Tony Roma‘S site on Ridge Lea Road. It’s across from Carraba’s and adjacent from the The Boulevard shopping center, which includes Best Buy and Target. It will be a short drive from The Boulevard Mall.

Costco rumors started last August, when there was news the huge retailer was eyeing a Buffalo location or two in the not so distant future.

My fiancée is from the Rochester region and she loves Costco. I mean, many people do. I get why they have not yet brought a location to the Buffalo region, but I’m sure it will be hugely popular for the folks in the northtowns. Ridge Lea/Maple Road/Niagara Falls Blvd. is my old stomping grounds.
