NEW ORLEANS- Wholesale merchandise store Costco plans to build it's first store in Louisiana.
The Times-Picayune reports the big-box store will go-up off I-10 near Xavier University.
Right now, the plan is for a 148,000 square-foot store. But, it still needs approval from the City Planning Commission and the City Council.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu's administration said Wednesday that they are hopeful that those steps will be formalities as all parties work toward a mid-2013 opening.
