Costco Wholesale Canada has opened a new 155,733 square foot location in Montreal’s Anjou area to replace a former location which will be converted to a Costco Business Centre.
The new location is 20% larger than the former location with 13 checkout registers, six station self-checkout section, 1000 shopping carts, 900 parking spots and more than 3,800 product skus.
“With the opening of this new warehouse, we can serve all of our members in the Anjou and surrounding area and can bring new consumers and businesses to uncover the benefits of a Costco membership,” said Pierre Riel, Senior Vice-President and Country Manager, Costco Wholesale Canada. “We are very proud to share this new location with our valued members and member businesses in the local community and throughout the area.”
Costco Wholesale currently operates 817 warehouses worldwide and 105 warehouses across Canada. The first Costco Wholesale location opened in Burnaby, BC in October 1985.
The first Quebec location opened in St. Laurent (Montreal), QC in 1986 and has since closed.
Costco Wholesale employs over 40,000 people in Canada, with 9,605 employees currently in Quebec.
