LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) -- Lexington's only Costco opens Friday, but shoppers got a sneak peek inside Thursday night.
The turnout was more than they expected. The parking lot was overflowing with visitors hoping to take a tour of the new store.
Inside guests were nearly shoulder-to-shoulder as they made their way through the aisles. Something the management is taking as a very encouraging sign.
"Watching all of these people show up, we seemed to get a lot more turnout than we expected, so it's actually really exciting to see the impact we bring to the community. It's pretty exciting," said Brad Gangler, manager.
The store will hold an official ribbon cutting ceremony at 7:30 Friday morning that will open the store to what they're hoping will be a big weekend of sales.
