The new Costco on the outskirts at 3751 Highway 7 is set to open this week, much to the delight of those living in East Brampton.

The new store has been taking shape for months following a 467,000-square-foot warehouse, as well as 17,000 square feet of office space.

The store opens its doors to the public on July 26 bright and early at 8 a.m. It will have all amenities available at any Costco store, plus the added bonus of a gas station, which isn’t available at the store on Steeles and Highway 410.

Hopefully, the new store means a little less traffic at the Steeles store, which always sports busy queues and a jam-packed parking lot.
