FAIRBANKS, Alaska - With Sam's Club departing, rumors that another wholesaler might arrive to fill the void have been swirling in Fairbanks.
Most have centered around Costco, another membership-based bulk chain that already operates multiple stores in Alaska.
We reached out to Costco CEO, Craig Jelinek, to see if he had any comment on the possibility of a Fairbanks Costco location. Here's what he had to say:
