Fresno’s oldest Costco Wholesale location is likely on-the-move, sources with knowledge told The Sun, with some new amenities slated for its future location.

Costco’s outlet now located on Shaw Avenue just east of Golden State Boulevard is set to shift to the northwest — to prime real estate near the sprawling Marketplace at El Paseo shopping center.

Earlier this year, the company tendered plans to the city of Fresno to construct a new warehouse at the intersection of Herndon Ave. and Riverside Drive.

The proposed site, one of the largest and last undeveloped parcels along Fresno’s heavily-trafficked expressway, is a 22.5 acre property located between a Darrel’s Mini Storage to the east and a newly-constructed residential development to the west.
