Now I have written about Costco opening in Brisbane at North Lakes a few times now and last time I mentioned I thought a March grand opening date, I was pretty much very wrong by looking at the work site at the moment and also keeping up with the banter online around the place, so I think the Costco opening date will be quite a while away.
I have registered via email from the main Costco website to get information about the North Lakes opening and although I haven’t received anything as yet there are people who have gotten an email with information about the construction, membership, employment and also the location of their temporary office in North Lakes where you can sign up for membership or get brochures about Costco and what they sell and do.
I think I’ll head down there over the coming weeks and sign up and then just play the waiting game from then in regards to an opening date.
You have the option of business and personal membership too for Costco so it will be interesting to see how this works too.
Online on the Costco website you can register to get your membership card for the North Lakes store, they don’t mail them out to you though so you will have to pick it up from them at some stage.
Also all the different stipulations of opening an account is there, this is pretty much for the ABN Business user of Costco as you have to have three types of business ID for them so you can get a Costco business membership card for yourself.
From doing a bit of reading and also taking into consideration the pace of construction, it is looking like a May or June Costco Brisbane opening.
I’d say this will depend on many things, weather and also pace of construction and things going smoothly on the construction site.
I will be off to take some pictures in the coming days too of the site as I go to the Bunnings there quite a lot and I’m thinking of doing the one picture from the same spot each week so I can see the difference over the time leading into the opening, I’m sure as the opening date gets closer it will accelerate in progress and change quite fast from the outside anyway.
Either way, a Costco coming to the Northside of Brisbane and to North Lakes will change the way a lot of people shop and also the jobs that are on offer too for the area will be great I’d say, I’m getting sucked into it now, so keep an eye out as I’ll keep on writing about my experiences and what’s happening with my local Costco here in Brisbane.
