Costco Wholesale is scheduled to open its bigger store near Teterboro Airport on Oct. 14, an employee said today.
That's about a month earlier than expected.
The new store is 3 miles from the Hackensack warehouse store, which opened on July 21, 1994.
The new store will have a Costco gas station and a liquor department with wines from its private label, Kirkland Signature, neither of which are available in Hackensack.
In recent years, the Hackensack store has become so crowded on weekends many members avoid the place at all costs.
The Hackensack parking lot is regarded as a zoo on almost any day.
Costco owns the 14.8-acre Hackensack site.
The new Costco will open in the Teterboro Landing Shopping Center near Route 46.

At Teterboro Landing, Costco Wholesale's new store and parking lot are surrounded by fences, looking very much like a work in progress.
The exterior of the building isn't complete and doesn't yet have the "Costco Wholesale" name on it.
Although the drive to the shopping center is only 3 miles longer than a trip to the Costco Wholesale in Hackensack, there is a lot more traffic and the main road, Route 46, is being repaired and resurfaced.
