No need to brave the parking lots or check-out lines at Costco stores in Ontario anymore.
Costco Wholesale has launched an online grocery delivery service across Southern Ontario. Starting today, residents and business can flex their Costco memberships and benefit from delivery straight to their doorsteps.
“We are very excited about the launch of Costco Grocery,” said Andrée Brien, Costco Canada’s Senior Vice-President and Senior General Merchandise Manager in a news release. “This new shopping option brings employment opportunities and makes a wider selection of quality goods available to members and businesses in Southern Ontario.”
Online orders will be processed at the recently-opened Business Centre in Toronto and offer a wide selection of products, including hundreds of non-perishable grocery items, health and beauty aid products, vitamins and supplements.
Two-day delivery is a guarantee on all orders and delivery is free for orders of $75 – as if you’ve ever spent less after stepping foot inside a store.
“We’ve watched our colleagues in the US enjoy success from their Costco Grocery launch, and are looking to repeat the same success in Canada,” said Brien, before adding that “we are starting on a smaller scale to ensure that we provide the level of service that Canadian members have come to enjoy across all of our businesses and services.”
The plan is to expand the delivery zone across the rest of Ontario and into Quebec.
Alas, you’ll still have to visit IRL to take advantage of the $1.50 hot dogs.
