A bulk superstore could be coming to town to fill one of the empty buildings at Bella Terra. The city’s first Costco is expected to replace the former Mervyns building on the northern end of Bella Terra at 7777 Edinger Ave. The 154,000-square-foot store would include a bakery and a gas station. The opening is expected to create more than 200 jobs. This is the second food store expected to open in Bella Terra. It was announced in November that Whole Foods Market would be taking over the old Circuit City space.

Golden West College’s president said a controversial proposal to build a Costco on 14 acres of college land just has too many drawbacks. Rather than accept a $2 million deal that local residents have denounced, he suggested the board look into projects about half that size for uses like student or faculty housing, or possibly new classrooms. College President Wes Bryan announced Dec. 6 that he would recommend the Coast Community College District board reject the proposal, and the board met Wednesday evening to hear his findings.

As discussions continue on a proposed Costco discount store near Golden West College on land used for soccer, baseball and track, the opposition has been getting louder and more organized. Though the proposed deal between the City of Huntington Beach, Golden West College and the mega retailer is in its earliest stages, neighbors fear the impact of a giant new store in their neighborhood. They have set up a website, savemcfadden.com , and they plan to speak in force at Coast Community College Board and Huntington Beach City Council meetings as long as is necessary.

Huntington Beach is one step closer to getting its first Costco after it received the green light Tuesday night from the Planning Commission. The commission unanimously approved a 154,113-square-foot store to be built alongside a four-story building with commercial use on the ground floor and 467 residential units on top floors just west of Bella Terra and east of the Union Pacific Railroad. The project must now go before the City Council for approval. The Costco at 7601 Edinger Ave. would have an attached tire-installation center, a 16-pump gas station and outdoor food sales with an eating area.

A controversial proposal to put a Costco discount store on the campus of Golden West College was scrapped Wednesday night as the Coast Community College Board voted unanimously to reject the plan. All five voting board members voted to reject putting a Costco there, further voting to boost community outreach efforts to prevent what they called a breakdown in communication. "It seems to me we have not a good job of community outreach in our community," Trustee Mary Hornbuckle said.

A large mass will take over the Costco in Huntington Beach this weekend, but it's not a tumor. Arnold Schwarzenegger will sign copies of his tell-all autobiography, "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story," at the store on Saturday morning as the conclusion of his book tour. John Checa, assistant general manager of the store, said store employees are "excited" about the event. "It's a brand-new location, and we don't really market ourselves as media marketing," he said.

The Huntington Beach City Council approved reductions in lifeguard services, cuts to downtown police patrols and helicopter flight time and axing the Fire Department's summer ambulance to fill a $3-million budget gap.

While often the closure of a large retailer is cause for alarm, observers of the Levitz store on Edinger Avenue see opportunity. But a complicated chain of who owns and leases the property stands in the way of an easy solution on a coveted piece of land, officials said. Levitz Furniture stores across the county shut down recently as part of the New York-based retailer’s bankruptcy filings. The Huntington Beach store at 7441 Edinger Ave., next to the Bella Terra shopping center, shut its doors Sunday after last-minute sales.
