Costco Wholesale opened its new warehouse club in London, Ont. located at 3140 Dingman Drive. The new and improved warehouse has created more than 40 additional jobs and an opportunity for local residents to benefit from even more conveniences and savings than what was provided by the previous Costco warehouse at 4313 Wellington Road South.
“With the opening of this new warehouse, we can serve all of our members in the London and surrounding area and can bring new consumers and businesses to uncover the benefits of a Costco membership,” said Gino Dorico, senior vice-president and country manager, Costco Wholesale Canada. “We are very proud to share this new location with our valued members and member businesses in the local community and throughout the area.”
The new 151,642-square-foot location features wider aisles and a larger selection of food offerings than in the past. It also includes a larger variety of specialty departments, such as an on-site bakery, fresh meat, expanded produce area, rotisserie chicken section, optical centre—including an on-site independent optometrist—a newly-introduced hearing aid centre, five tire centre bays, large food court, gas station with 24 pumps on four islands, propane station and an expanded pharmacy. With 12 checkout registers, a new self-checkout section with nine stations and 1,050 shopping carts, the warehouse features 800 parking spots—150 spots more than the former London location.
The new warehouse is 20 per cent larger than the previous location.
