Is it true Costco purchased the property behind Thru Way Restaurant?

Got it from two sources.  One source got hers from a realtor, while the other source is from a home developer.  Rumor has it that Costco will wait until Carleton Place population reaches a certain point.

 

I've been hoping Costco comes toCP.  What with all the grocery stores so close to one another (and Freshco isn't that too far a drive away), CP will truly be discount/sales alley! :)  Win-win for consumers!

Really!  Why is that?  Speak, ye that ride on white asses!

(sorry, plagiarized that last bit from the 3rd sonnet of Crustaceans or something like that)

And why would you be posting such chat in Local Politics?

This forum isn't some cheesy tarsands outfit, you know.  We have standards.

If the rumour is true .... I'd be happy to see them come to town ..... another reason not to have to drive into the city.

Indeed, Costco is handy when you get a hankering for an 80-gallon tub of peanut butter.  But I honestly can't see it with the existing one so close, that the guvvies have to drive by anyway.  Weren't we also supposed to be getting a Chapters ... and a Value Village ... and a Wendy's ... think I've heard them all.  I'm with you though Centurian... bring them on!

I pesonally don't believe it, it would be a big break from their business plan.  How many Costco Locations are their in Ontario?  26

How many cities have more that 1? 4

Ottawa has 2 alread Gloucester and Kanata.  The smallest market they have one currently open in is Kingston.  The odds are well against them putting a location here in Carleton Place.

 

More likely we'll see more commercial once we get some of these residential programs underway.
