If the approvals go through quickly we could be surprised at how fast it goes up.

It could... but it probably won’t. My bet (and I think it’s pretty safe) is that a new store is at least a year away.

I can wait a year for the new store, not a problem. What I'd love to see is ground being broken for the gas bar! :up:

By the time they get around to building the gas bar we will all be driving electric cars.

They should put in pay charging stations in the parking lot. Free charge if you spend over X amount of $'s

This actually makes sense. With how long my wife spends at Costco, we'd be always coming out to a fully charged car!

That would be like receiving free fuel to shop at Costco.

That's a real good idea!

They would have to show their receipt from Costco.

What on earth is the big deal regarding Costco & it's relocation of moving 3 blocks over ?

Surely your entire life can't revolve around Costco & saving 12 cents because something is jumbo sized ?

It is Kelowna. These are major issues for many here.

For myself it's the effect of having fuel pumps.

Why not? It's a full day, sight seeing trip.
Isn't Kal Lake pretty, Martha?
We could stop at the Jamery on the way back, eh? Martha?.
Martha says, "Ehh, you smell that Phil? It smells like your relatives.
Phil says, "Yeah,____ in-laws"
The rest of the trip is quiet and enjoyable.

Trip started out to to save $0.12, and ended with peace and tranquility for 3 hours. That is well worth 12 cents, 10, because we don't have pennies anymore.
You can't even make a phone call at a phone booth anymore for 10 cents.

We will drive to Oroville and Omak for a Turkey and Tillamook Cheese and have saved enough to pay the fuel costs.

Nice day trip too.
