A Brand New Costco Is Open And We’re Celebrating

This week, I was invited to join the festivities at the Costco Grand Opening in Saskatoon! A second store for the city (which, as noted at the ribbon cutting ceremony, is a very big deal!) means  not only alleviating the traffic and crowds at the west Saskatoon Costco location, but also bringing a sparkly brand new store to residents in the south end of Saskatoon, and beyond.

I commented on Instagram Stories about the shiny floors (typically Costco stores are very well kept, but brand new floors have an entirely different shine to them!) and we also noted the brand new pallets, small things that just make everything brighter and more inviting when saying “Hello” to Saskatoon. I also noted changes in the brand new store’s layout compared to what I’m used to in our Regina store. There’s a middle aisle down the center of the store (up to the meat department at the back) which helps alleviate some crowding and also gives shoppers the ability to get to where they need to easier.

Also of note, entire cooler sections for both dairy and produce (again, in my usual store in Regina which is an older layout, we have dairy in the cooler only). I couldn’t believe how huge both these sections were, making it easy for carts to maneuver around while everyone fills them with fresh food. My favorite area of the store, the meals-to-go section, again was huge and full of tasty offerings.

I admit, I loved how perfect every single display was the night before the grand opening, but it’s not far off from what I usually see when I visit any Costco (how DO they do it?!)

The South Saskatoon Costco location wasn’t the only new Costco location in Canada this week! Both Waterloo, Ontario and Barrhaven, Ontario held Costco Grand Openings last week as well – what a big month for Costco Canada! To celebrate, they’re throwing a Twitter party!
