Not sure if other locations have this as well, but I saw a couple styles of women's designer jeans for sale!

Two styles of women's true religions and an older style/wash of women's diesel. Definitely authentic from what I can see.

Sorry guys.. you only have Kirkland jeans to fight over. ;)

I have a question for those that have already been to the location. Where exactly is it along Still Creek/Willingdon? Is it on the same stretch of road that McDonalds is on?

Is there an optical centre there? I wanna book an appointment for contact lens fitting. I tried looking up the new store online but it only shows the older Burnaby location on Lougheed Hwy.

Yes there is an optical centre at the new store. It is close to this place that sells tiles, and also close to ProOrganics. It was on my right hand side, when I drove there from BCIT.

Holy crap. I was there at 4:45 PM and they had most of a full pallet of Wiis out. :razz:

Very nice store though. Similar to newer Costcos in Washington.

They were 96.99, Joey are available in a lighter wash. Johnny was in a dark blue rinse wash.

Sizes 24 and up.

Diesels were $70ish I think.. sizes 26 and up. Cherone only in 710 wash.

I dropped by today and the place is pretty big. The parking lot is huge and the parking spots are BIG. Instead of a line between the stalls, they put U shaped markers so it gives everybody a bigger buffer between the cars.

Which most Costcos have outside Vancouver. I'm so glad they included that.

Noticed a couple of high end items you don't normally see in Costco. Really nice Hugo Boss shirts for $80 and Lacoste polos for $60.
General Radek had some good ideas.

Hope they'll have the WD Passport drives there.
Only saw the 320GB (it was either $160 or $170). Although the only computer stuff I saw was 3 external hard drives on a standalone display near the entrance. There must've been more computer stuff there but I didn't see it.

The parking spots at the Downtown Costco are pretty big as well with double lines between stalls.
Have a nice day!

Very nice Costco. Reminds me of the ones in the US. Yeah. The parking spots are nice.

Nothing else is special though. But I didn't look around a lot. No special deals. Lots of samples though.
