A Special Costco Warehouse Just Opened Near Montreal

A massive new Costco opened near Montreal this morning and it's unlike any other Costco Wholesale in the province. In fact, it's only the second of its kind in Canada.  

The 132,000-square-foot Costco Business Centre, located in Saint-Hubert, specializes in targeting business needs — from commercial kitchenware to office supplies — but regular people can shop there too, as long as they're Costco members.

The first Canadian Costco Business Centre launched in Scarborough, Ontario in March 2017.

70% Of items cannot be found at regular Costco stores

Of the 3,200 items available at the new store, 2,200 — about 70% — are specific to the Business Centre and are enterprise-focused, spokesperson Renée-Dominique Dowd told MTL Blog.

Following a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the morning of September 29, members of the public began shuffling in.

Despite their masks, shoppers could be overheard praising the prices of bulk items, including those local to Quebec, such as economy-sized packs of St-Albert cheese curds ($9.95 per kilogram) and 4-litre jugs of Bernard maple syrup ($50).  

The Business Centre offers next-business-day delivery to commercial addresses within 25 kilometres of its location at 5025 Boulevard Cousineau.

There are plans to open several more Business Centres across Canada in 2021.
