I heard the issues with City Hall have been resolved. Apparently the person at City Hall who was opposing it was actually in a conflict of interest and was called on it and has backed down.

The Costco HO people were in town and in the store and told the staff it's now a go ahead.

sounds good I know that Costco has started installing infrastructure there about 18 months ago and then seemed at a stand still; I assume by the last post those were the reasons and now its going to be completed
Iam sure theres more to the story because I seriously doubt one lone Kelowna city hall peon could hold up a billion dollar company?
anyone know what this one persons complaint was and how they were in conflict of interest

Costco already started building in Westbank/ West Kelowna. Old Zellers location. If you drive by you can see the new facade going up already.

Old Zellers in West Kelowna is a Uhaul not a Costco. https://www.castanet.net/news/West-Kelo ... new-tenant

This is why I'll believe it when I see it. So many rumours. While it might be true who knows. That's why we have reporters who hopefully check facts.

Shaking my head at the "starting to build" when it's completely finished and has been for quite a while. Goes to show some posters aren't the best source of information and I'll believe it when I see a new Costco building too. Too bad they don't buy the gas station already there and run it themselves.

Its very unlikely COSTCO would move to west Kelowna I seriously do not believe such rumors especially when there doing the multi million dollar expansion north of kelowna

If it's going to have a gas bar, I hope they're going to carry diesel, not like the one in Kamloops.

Would be nice if only to drop the price at other stations. I'm not driving from the lower Mission to fill my truck. It would cost me more than I would save.

The new site was pointed out to me. The present Costco location does not have enough parking, hasn't for years, and no room to expand. Costco also likes to have their own gas bar, and in Kelowna it is a Chevron station on the side of their parking lot.
