INTERNATIONAL wholesaling colossus Costco will next month in Melbourne open its tenth warehouse in Australia, its fourth in Victoria, its 745th worldwide.

The warehouse will feature Victoria’s second Costco Fuel station. Members need a Costco card to shop and to purchase fuel at the self-serve stations.
An Annual Costco membership will cost $55 for businesses and $60 for individuals.
The company plans to next open new warehouses in Ipswich (Qld) and Perth.
