Since new Costco and Target stores are part of the plan for the new Hamilton Crossings shopping center, a recent opinion column caught the eye of the ever-on-the-ball retail research team her at Lower Macungie Patch.
Author Michael Neuendorff seems to have the credentials to compare both stores, and some of the facts are points to ponder. For example, Costco only takes MasterCard online, not in stores.
We've all shopped in both Costco and Target. Which do you like better and why? Tell us in the comments.
The comparison is interesting because plans are in the works to construct both stores at Hamilton Crossings a mere two years from now. It'll be here before we know it.
Meanwhile, details are being worked out regarding funding and soil remediation.
Until then, we can dream about the convenience of having both right here in the Patch!
