Costco is still expanding to this day, with the announcement of more than 30 new locations in 2024. But even while they’re continuously growing, not every state has a warehouse. 

Out of them all, there are only three U.S. states without a Costco, and that includes Rhode Island, West Virginia, and Wyoming. 

But don’t fret, this doesn’t mean that you’ll have to miss out forever. Costco has been closing this gap quickly, and hopefully soon, one or more of these states will have a warehouse! 

Which State Has the Most Costco’s?

Other states are lucky enough to have multiple stores to choose from in their area. With an average of 14 Costco stores per state, some have exceeded that amount. 

The winner for most Costco stores in one state is California sitting at a total of 135 warehouses. Texas follows this with 38 Costco warehouses. Washington is close behind in third with 33 warehouses. 

The cities with the most amount of Costco warehouses include Phoenix, San Diego, and San Jose at 5. 

How Many Costco Stores Are in the U.S.?

As of February 2024, the United States has a total of 602 Costcos across the country. That means California homes 22% of these warehouses.

But out of the 30 new locations this year, approximately 24 are supposed to open in the U.S.
