Costco plans on opening as many as 25 more Canadian stores.

New stores will open in Ontario and several Western Canadian provinces. Metro areas targeted for new stores include Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg.  Selected communities in Alberta and Saskatchewan will also be considered.

Costco is the fourth-largest retailer in America with almost 630 stores and about $100 billion in sales. In Canada, it has over 80 locations and hopes to have about 110 Canadian stores as its final build-out.

She received this information from announcements made by Costco senior VP Louise Wendling and Costco co-founder Jim Sinegal during the Retail Council of Canada’s Store 2013 conference being held this week in suburban Toronto.

  1. They keep telling us that there will be a Costco in Collingwood, but it’s been years and still no sign of one. How long before they get one. Right now, I have to travel 3 hrs. one way to get to one – then 3 hrs. back.

  2. Thunder Bay Ontario really needs a Costco also. The stores in Thunder Bay do not have the variety and I think people there would love having one there. I know I would.

  3. I’d like to see a Costco in Lloydminster Alberta. Always having to drive to Edmonton or Saskatoon and don’t shop there as much because of that

  4. Lloydminster would be a great place as it’s half way between Edmonton and Saskatoon about 2.5 hours either way, and it’s trading area is pretty large.
