Costco to bring jobs, bargain shopping to Limerick

    About 1,000 have applied for jobs at the Costco set to open in Limerick next month, though there are only 90 to 100 positions to go around.

    Doors will open Aug. 17 at the Gateway at Sanatoga shopping center, where half of 175-person staff will be made up of transfers from other Costco locations.

    Store General Manager Scott Riekers told the Pottstown Mercury merchandise will be hitting the shelves within the next couple weeks.
