All Middle Earth attractions, the Bay of Islands, and now...Costco!? That's right, add Costco to your list of spots to check out in New Zealand because the retailer is finally opening up its first shop in The Land of the Long White Cloud.
“Costco is very excited to open our first warehouse in New Zealand and to be a part of this community. We feel Westgate is the perfect location for us,” said Patrick Noone, Australia Managing Director, in a statement, according to newsroom.
Set to open in Northwest Auckland in 2021, the new store will stand at 45,931 square feet and will cost the retailer $90 million ($59 million USD). And, like most of Costco’s stores, the first New Zealand location will feature groceries, a food court, a fuel station, a tire center, and more.
As one of the world’s largest retailers, Costco operates 800 warehouses worldwide, and counting. Just this week, the retailer announced new stores across the United States, including one in Houston, Texas; Loves Park, Illinois; and Bradenton, Florida.
