The wait is almost over for the highly anticipated retail giant Costco, Newsroom reports. Kiwi members of the US-based department store will be able to get their hands on wholesale-priced items from September 28 at the first New Zealand store in Westgate, Auckland. The $100 million store was initially planned to open in mid-August but shipping, weather and COVID-19-related delays kept the doors shut an extra month. The appeal to Costco is that it’s meant to have lower prices than traditional supermarkets, with research showing the club store prices can be 22.5% lower.
