Costco Bringing Home Delivery to Canada

The next time there’s a huge snow storm and you don’t feel like going out, you may be able to order your Costco purchases straight to your home! Thanks to a successful launch in the U.S. last year, Costco has announced plans to bring online grocery delivery to homes in Canada.

Due to increasing competition from online retailers such as Amazon, traditional brick and mortar stores have been forced to expand outside traditional sales. Various grocery stores in Winnipeg already offer home delivery and that number is expected to increase.

As with all stores that offering online grocery shopping, there’s still the problem with the freshness of produce. Many shoppers prefer to look, feel and touch their produce before purchasing it. This is currently impossible in the digital world but would have to be a sacrifice for convenience.
