Costco moving to Westside

All signs point to Costco relocating its Kelowna store to the Westside.

Castanet has learned the retail giant has leased a number of properties on Westside Road, just off Highway 97, for the new store.

The property is on Westbank First Nation lands.

Surveyors have apparently already been on the property.

It's been no secret Costco has been looking for a new location for some time. The company has been looking for a larger space, more room for parking and space for a gas bar.

Those were not possible at its current Kelowna location.

The first choice was an industrial park across from Kelowna International Airport, however, the city nixed that location, saying it doesn't fit into plans for the area.

Rumours of a move to the Westside heated up in September when company employees mentioned a move while manning a booth at the IPE in Armstrong.

It also became an election issue when mayoralty candidate Tom Dyas accused the city of not treating the company very well.

Neither Costco nor WFN have officially announced the move.

It's believed a new store could be open on the Westside in 2020.
