Costco Just Opened A 'Bigger & Better' Anjou Location — Here's A First Look (PHOTOS)

Montreal Costco fans rejoice — a brand new 155,733-square-foot location just opened up in Anjou.

If you're a true Costco addict, you may be wondering, "Isn't there already a Costco in Anjou?" The answer is yes. But that location (on rue Bombardier) closed and will be converted into a Business Centre. Meanwhile, the area's regular Costco Wholesale has moved a short, five-minute drive away to Boulevard des Sciences.

Costco Wholesale called the new Anjou location "bigger and better." We checked it out on opening day, October 27, and it totally lives up to the hype!

Ken Saumure, regional marketing manager, pointed out the Italian market section. He said it has goods you won't find at other Costcos because it's representative of the area's prominent Italian population.
