Edmonton is now home to Costco Wholesale’s first business centre in Western Canada.
The 127,000-square-foot facility opened its doors on Tuesday in the city’s west end
just off Stony Plain Road along 184 Street.
More than 70 percent of the products in the store aim at catering
to businesses such as restaurants, grocery stores, and offices.
Some of the items include 10-kilogram jars of peanut butter,
nearly 20 liters of maple syrup, and 16-liters of canola oil.
Marc-André Bally, the vice-president of business centres and ancillary businesses for Costco Wholesale Canada,
said the Edmonton location had been in the works for some time and was glad to see the doors open.
“For a business centre, the first thing we look at is how many businesses are in a 30 to 40-minute drive radius,”
“This concept is based on selling mostly to businesses and delivering to businesses so of course,
having a decent density of businesses around is the key indicator as to if a project like this can be viable.”
