Say hello to a new Costco in Lawrence, NJ.  Construction could start in the Spring.  From Brendan McGrath of the Times of Trenton:

Costco has closed a $9.4 million deal to purchase 17 acres in Lawrence for a new store near Quaker Bridge Mall, the seller of the property said Thursday. The site plan for the 156,000-square-foot store includes a liquor store, a pharmacy, an optical services section, a tire sales and installation center, and a 16-pump gas station on a separate part of the land. The location also would include roughly 720 parking spaces, and would employ 200 people.
