We’ve recently discussed with Costco Wholesale the rumours of an outlet opening on the Central Coast. What we’ve been told did not surprise us at all, so we figured that the people of the Central Coast should know the truth behind what is really going on.
Costco Wholesale has submitted an application to Council, however, this was petitioned against by Coles and Woolworths Supermarkets. This comes as no surprise to us as the two supermarket chains fight to keep their profit margins high.
The Central Coast needs competition and needs it now. The quality of fruit and vegetable produce sold by Coles and Woolworths on the Central Coast is some of the worst we have seen. Just stop by Dee Why and Brookvale Coles and have a look at the fruit and vegetables sold there. Fresh, Quality and the same price if not cheaper.
Introducing Costco Wholesale on the Central Coast will only benefit all residents of the Central Coast directly and indirectly. Not only are we talking about seeing Coles and Woolworths compete and offer better pricing, service and produce, but we will also all see a reduction in price and further employment of locals.
On a side note, we’ve been told that Costco Pizzas are simply great, New York Style! Probably good enough to rival Pizza Hut and Dominos.
