Remember when you had to drive all the way out to richmond for your 30 litre containers of Tang? It would take $15 bucks worth of gas and by the time you got there your latte would be cold?
Total drag man.
Well if you live downtown your life is about to change for the better with the new Yaletown Costco.
The cheese selection has been expanded to bring in products that might appeal to shoppers who aren’t just looking for cheese to slap on a school sandwich.
In clothing, a popular area for Costco shoppers, the brands will include such upscale names as Louis Vuitton, Ross said.
“This is a place where you can buy tires and a two carat diamond ring for $19,699,” he said.
Ross said the decision to open a store in the downtown core was made to meet the demands of “one of the most densely populated areas in North America.
“I think sometimes there is a misconception that Costco is always about bulk food products,” he said. “Coming into a Costco, the first thing you hit is major appliances and electronics, plasma TVs, iPods and high end electronics.
“I think that fits very well into the downtown market.”
Awesome! But where am I going to find room in my 500 square foot condo to store all that cheese?
