The Dawn of a New Era: Marysville Costco

A new Costco Wholesale store, in the Marysville Metropolitan area, opened its doors in September 2023. The store is technically in Linda, an unincorporated community next to Marysville, California, with a population of over 21,800. Spanning a massive 160,000 square feet, the new Costco will be situated at the former Peach Tree Mall site along North Beale Road and Lindhurst Avenue.

In 1999 The Peach, Tree Mall was renamed the Feather River Center.

This location had been vacant for many years, marking a significant step in the revitalization of the area. With the arrival of Costco, it is anticipated that this will serve as an inspiration for other national brands to establish their presence in the region, thereby further boosting the local economy

Costco Wholesale Corporation is a multinational corporation that operates a membership-only big-box retail store chain. Since its inception in 1983, Costco has grown exponentially eventually becoming one of the leading players in the retail industry.

Peach Tree Mall mall’s history, however, was not without its share of challenges. In 1986, a devastating flood caused by a levee break left the mall and the surrounding area submerged in 10 feet of water for two weeks.

The mall never reopened after the flood, and it remained vacant for many years. In 2021, a fire, reportedly started by a transient man following a domestic dispute, ravaged the abandoned mall, leading to its demolition.
