CONSTRUCTION on the $40 million Costco store planned for the Crossroads can now begin.
The development was approved by the Joint Regional Planning Panel last week.
During the 12-month construction period, it is estimated about 80 full-time jobs will be created, with a further 250 full-time jobs on site, once the bulky-goods retailer starts operating.
A further 225 indirect jobs are also expected to be created in Sydney, other parts of NSW and interstate.
Liverpool mayor Ned Mannoun said development would greatly benefit the local economy and increase jobs opportunities.
"It's anticipated more than 670,000 shoppers will visit the Costco store each year which will stimulate retail and economic growth in Liverpool," he said.
"Liverpool has extensive investment opportunities and this type of development reinforces our status as a key regional city.
"It boosts investment potential and caters for the expected city growth over the next decade."
The Costco site will have a small food court, a service station with tyre centre and a photo-processing hub. Infrastructure upgrades will also be provided to manage traffic accessing the site, including a dual right-turn lane, pedestrian upgrades and on-site parking. A start date is yet to be announced.
