Camillus, N.Y. — Costco opens the doors of its store at Township 5 today.
Here’s what you need to know:
The store opens at 8 a.m., but staff will be on site signing up new members starting at 7 a.m. If there’s a big crowd, general manager Skip Leonhard said he’ll open early.
New members can sign up in the store’s vestibule area. You won’t need to go inside.
There are two annual membership levels for individuals. The first is gold star for $55. That’s the basic level.
An executive membership is $110 and comes with an annual 2 percent reward up to $750 on qualified Costco purchases.
If you sign up today, you get a $10 Costco cash card with a gold star membership and a $20 card with an executive membership.
Leonhard said anyone is welcome to come in and take a look around the store, but if you want to buy something, you’ll need a membership. There are no day passes.
But the memberships are fully refundable. If you decide you want a refund on day 364, Costco will give it to you, Leonhard said.
Regular store hours are 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
The Township 5 development is between Bennett and Hinsdale roads.
