9 Of The Wildest Mega Items Spotted At The Special Costco Near Montreal

It's the first of its kind in the province.
Associate Editor

If you love buying in bulk, then you probably already know that a special business-focused Costco opened near Montreal last year and about 70% of the items cannot be found at regular Costco Wholesale stores.

Costco's Renée-Dominique Dowd told MTL Blog that the new 132,000-square-foot Business Centre targets enterprise needs — from commercial kitchenware to office supplies — but regular people can shop there too, as long as they're Costco members.

So, what specifically does the Costco Business Centre sell? We took a trip to Saint-Hubert to see for ourselves and there were definitely some items that made us stop and go, "Whoa" followed by questioning whether we'd shrunk and were now forced to navigate a world made for humans who were giant by comparison (à la Honey, I Shrunk the Kids or Downsizing).

Are these products outrageously large? Yes. Will you feel a deep desire to own them immediately upon seeing them? Maybe. But, above all, it's just fun to know this wild stuff has been spotted within a 20-minute drive of downtown Montreal.
