A much-needed economic boost is about to come to Oklahoma City as Costco is in talks with the city and state to open an operations and customer care center that would add more than 1,000 jobs over the next three years.

The deal, pending approval of job incentives, calls for hiring 500 in the first year and then hitting 1,044 total jobs in the third year with an average annual salary of $59,740.

The Oklahoma City Economic Development Trust is being asked to approve a request, which will be presented Monday, to provide Costco with $3 million to support creation of the new eCommerce and travel division jobs and purchase of property.

If the deal is approved by the trust, the application would then be presented to the Oklahoma City Council.
