Tour de force wholesale retailer Costco is expanding its grasp on the market in both the U.S. and Canada. Recently, the industry giant announced it will be opening up new store locations in Michigan and Canada and made plans for the Oregon market.
On September 29, Costco opened its a new Business Center in our neighboring market to the north. This marks the second business location Costco has opened in Canada, anchoring in South Shore of Montreal, Quebec. The new location follows the success of the first Canadian Costco Business Center in Ontario.
“The new Business Center will enable thousands of local businesses of all sizes to benefit from reduced operating expenses and the convenience of one-stop shopping, either in person or online, with a convenient door-to-door delivery service,” Costco stated in an email shared with Daily Hive.
Another location slated to open will be in Midland, Michigan. The newest location will be open to the public on November 12 and will be 158,000 square feet. According to a statement provided by General Manager Mark Zuerner to Midland Daily News, the retailer will offer delivery through its website as well as Instacart.
In Oregon, the Salem City Council recently approved a site plan review for a new Costco Wholesale store in Salem. According to the Statesman Journal, plans are still under discussion with the council and residents regarding the use of a site for a new 168,550-square-foot location. No news was released on when the store would open.
As retailers continue to expand their reach, Deli Market News will continue to provide the latest updates.
