Huge crowds show up for opening of Toronto's newest Costco

After months of anticipation, the brand new Costco in Thorncliffe Park has finally opened its doors to the public, and people are going bonkers over the massive wholesale store.

The Costco opened on Tuesday to massive crowds, filling the 165,802-square-foot warehouse with a sea of shopping carts. 

Located at 42 Overlea Blvd., the new store takes over an old Coca-Cola bottling plant and has opened up more than 400 jobs to the community.
