Workers will start turning the soil on Victoria's fourth Costco site today!
Construction is getting underway at Costco Epping, just next to the Pacific Epping Shopping Centre.
The new Costo will have more than 13,000 square metres of floor space, and be the second in Victoria to have it's own discount petrol station. The store is expected to open by the middle of 2018 and create over 250 full-time and part-time jobs.
Boss of Costco Australia, Patrick Noone, says this is the perfect place for Victoria's 4th outlet.
"It is the perfect location for us, offering convenience for our rapidly expanding membership in this area. We look forward to being an integral part of the growth in Melbourne’s North."
If you have never been inside a Costco store, you need a membership first. That'll set you back $60 a the door for 1 year. Costco takes about 1% of Australia’s $100 billion grocery market.
