Costco thorncliffe

Massive new Costco opening in midtown Toronto next week

Go Go Gadget, mass consumption! The hotly-anticipated Costco store at Coca-Cola Canada's former headquarters campus in Toronto is finally, at long last, ready to open. 

"Costco Wholesale Canada is pleased to announce the official opening of its first membership warehouse club in Thorncliffe Park," reads a press release from the company.

"The new warehouse is expected to create more than 150 jobs and an opportunity for local residents to benefit from the convenience and savings provided by a Costco membership."

A ribbon cutting ceremony with such dignitaries as former Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne and Don Valley West MP Rob Oliphant is slated to take place next Tuesday just before the store opens at 8 a.m.

While originally meant to launch in February of this year, the project was delayed by what appeared to be weather-related construction woes at 42 Overlea Boulevard.

Thank goodness that's all behind us now. I hope your mom has room in the pantry for more paper towel and Dunkaroos!
