|In the parking lot of the Costco Wholesale in Hackensack in August.|
By VICTOR E. SASSON
The store manager I spoke to in September 2014 was right after all -- the Hackensack Costco will close, then re-open as a Business Center.
A month after I reported that conversation, a daily newspaper said the Costco Wholesale in Hackensack would be closing permanently.
Today, the same newspaper corrected that story without admitting the error:
The Hackensack Costco will close on Oct. 13 and then be converted into a Costco Business Center catering to small-business owners.
That means the Hackensack store will carry food and fresh produce for restaurants and catering businesses -- and for Costco members who don't want to drive another 3 miles to the new warehouse in Teterboro.
The bigger Costco will have 148,000 square feet, compared to 127,000 square feet in Hackensack.
The Teterboro store will employ 425, about 100 more than Hackensack.
