Costco Moorabbin is the 8th Costco Warehouse to open in Australia and the first in Melbourne with a fuel station.
It opened a day earlier than the original program despite several weeks of inclement weather (which could have pushed the opening into 2016). The VIP event was held the night prior to opening for around 1200 people, including the Mainbrace team, key subcontractors, Costco direct contractors and key vendors of products sold at the warehouse all getting the chance to mix with the Costco Executive team who attend the VIP night at each new store.
The store opened for trade on Wednesday morning at 7.30am – with a ribbon cutting by local dignitaries (councillors and politicians) as well as Miss Universe Australia –and by 10am there were queues to get a car spot and it has been that way every day since.
The project has been a great success for Mainbrace in Victoria and has strengthened our relationship with Costco.
