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!

The new Anjou Costco Wholesale is 20% bigger than the previous location with 20% more shopping carts (literally 1,000 of them), 900 parking spots, 18 gas pumps, thousands of products for sale and a whole new self-checkout section.

It also has wider aisles and a bigger variety of specialty departments, including an on-site pharmacy, bakery, produce area, tire centre, meat section and rotisserie chicken section.

The morning of the opening, Costco was already full of hustle and bustle, but there was no wait to get in, the lines at the cash were extremely manageable and there were parking spots available.

The new Anjou Costco has many beloved items that will be familiar to Costco regulars, ranging from big tubs of Nutella to Kirkland brand clothing to frozen food from local restaurants like Schwartz's smoked meat.

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.
