The 134,000 square-foot facility is located at 7373 Rue Bombardier and offers more than 3,000 products, which have been curated to appeal to the local businesses in the Quebec market.
“We are thrilled to open our doors and offer this new service, which will better respond to the needs of local business owners,” said Marc-André Bally, Senior Vice-President, Costco Wholesale Eastern Canada. “The Costco Business Centre concept is already a resounding success in Quebec and across the country, and we look forward to extending the same benefits to more businesses in Quebec. We hope we will bring many new consumers to discover the benefits of a Costco membership.”
This new business centre is the sixth of its kind in the Canadian market and continues the national expansion of the concept. The first location opened in Toronto’s Scarborough area in March 2017, followed by Saint-Hubert Quebec in September 2020, and Ottawa, Edmonton and St. Catharines last spring.
“Costco members will find our product offering to be unique, while always offering great value,” said Louis Santillo, General Manager of the new Business Centre. “This convenient and spacious location will present a vastly different selection of business merchandise – at prices that only Costco Wholesale can offer and with the added bonus of white-glove, next- day delivery service.”
The brand provided a full breakdown of the location, which “offers more than 3,000 high-quality items, targeted at restaurants, convenience/grocery stores and offices – from bulk food items, commercial kitchen wares and cleaning supplies, to office furniture, coffee needs and everything in between. Examples include 16-litre jars of canola oil, a variety of large format packages (up to 25 kilograms) of flour and sugar, 36-kilogram Parmigiano wheels, 10-kilogram jars of peanut butter and 18.9-litre containers of maple syrup. Other exclusive items include commercial meat slicers, mixers and food processors.”
The warehouses are open to members only, with an annual fee of $60 for a Business Membership or $60 for a Gold Star Membership.
Costco Wholesale currently operates 831 warehouses worldwide and 106 across Canada, employing more than 43,000 employees. The first Quebec location opened in Saint-Laurent in 1986, expanding to employ more than 8,800 in the province.
