There is still no public word about when Costco will begin demolition of the old Dillards store at Westfield Sarasota Square Mall in order to start construction of their new Sarasota Costco. That being said, I drove by over the weekend after attending the 2011 Crystall Classic Master Sand Sculpting Competition on Siesta Key and noticed that there is some pre-demo activity taking place. The photos below were taken on Sunday and it looks to me like the Sarasota Costco in Palmer Ranch may finally begin construction soon.
