“Mt. Juliet is one of the fastest growing ‘small towns’ in Middle Tennessee, and we are waiting for this to come out. It’s time,” Trey Suey, said. “We’ve had to go all the way over to West Nashville after church to get our Costco groceries.”

Now, the multi-billion-dollar global retailer could soon be in their backyard.

“This is slated for what I would describe kind of the northwest corner of Legacy Point,” said Mt. Juliet mayor James Maness.

“We’ll see a lot of pros for this. They are estimating over 200 jobs being created,” Maness said.
