Costco to open its first Western Australia store

Posted by Andrea Hogan on 26th February 2018

Costco has announced it will be opening its first store in Western Australia.

The US supermarket chain announced on its Facebook page that its first WA store will be located near Perth Airport. An open date is yet to be revealed.

Costco’s Facebook announcement said the WA store comes after “years of waiting and wishing”.

“We cannot wait to finally be able to service the Perth community,” Costco said.

Over the past couple of years, Costco has opened a small number of stores throughout Australia after signaling intentions to expand.

In late August 2017, Costco opened a store in Marsden Park, approximately 50 kilometres from Sydney’s CBD.

Costco is expected to open its third Melbourne store in the suburb of Epping in mid-2018.

In the past, Costco Australia’s Managing Director, Patrick Noone has said Costco is considering opening stores in regional parts of Australia such as Newcastle and Wollongong, both located in New South Wales.

Costco opened its first Australian store in Melbourne’s Docklands in 2009. The supermarket giant first opened in the United States in 1976 and today has stores in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Spain, Iceland and France.
