When you say “one-stop shop”, what store comes to mind? Or a store where you never leave without spending at least a couple of hundred dollars?

Yes, that’s Costco Wholesale!

Costco is that store where you can never just visit and stick to a list; there is always something else to catch your eye and end up in your shopping cart! Costco is our go-to for particular brands and items that I can’t find anywhere else, such as the imported Greek olive oil and feta cheese, and Kirkland brand of almonds, walnuts and pecans. People love the food samples as you peruse each giant aisle, and who can blame them? There are so many delicious offerings including tasty snacks for work and school.

I make sure to stock up on our must-have P&G household products like Tide detergent, Dawn dish soap, Bounty paper towels, Charmin bathroom tissue, and Cascade dishwasher detergent. I also peruse the personal beauty aisles to pick up some Crest toothpaste, and Gillette razors!  I also visit the pharmacy to purchase vitamins and protein powder at amazing prices.

Where else can you buy snowsuits in July?!  Of course a trip to Costco wouldn’t be the same without stopping off to eat a hot dog and French fries!

So it’s exciting to share that Costco is opening two new stores in Vaughan and Orillia! The doors officially open on July 25 and 26 with the ribbon cutting ceremony and I’ll be there to celebrate the official warehouse openings of both locations.

I had the opportunity to enjoy a private tour of the Orillia store, and let me give you a hint – there will be some products on display for the grand opening that will WOW customers, including a giant paddleboard and sailboat!

I’ll also get a sneak peek the evening before, so make sure you’re following me on Instagram stories and Twitter where I’ll be sharing it all to help you navigate your shopping at the grand opening and the days that follow!

If you’re not already a Costco member, you can sign up before the official opening to beat the rush. Already a Costco member? Great! Just bring a friend to sign-up and you can each receive a $10 Costco Cash Card!

Don’t forget there are weekly savings available starting Mondays. They can be viewed online here. 

Take advantage of your membership online and shop 24/7 on Costco.ca, where you’ll find thousands of items not available in warehouses. Make sure to peruse the website; there are many larger items such furniture for sale that you can’t find in store!

There will be special items only available at the Orillia and Vaughan locations for the grand opening. But get there early! Doors open on July 25, 2017 at 8 a.m. in Orillia and July 26 at 8 a.m. in Vaughan.

See you there!
