POOLER, Ga. (WTOC) - The City of Pooler has approved the site plan for a Costco location in the city.

The City’s planning and zoning team met Monday afternoon to consider the plan.

The site, located off of Pooler Parkway just south of I-16, is slated to include a Costco as well as several other businesses. Traffic concerns are also top of mind, and Mayor Rebecca Benton says a traffic study is already underway.

Mayor Benton says she’s encouraged by the added jobs and economic activity it would bring to Pooler.

“Well it’s going to be a tremendous impact, and of course we have to worry about traffic, but the convenience of having a wholesale house like that is just incredible,” she said.
