Tired of the long lineups at the two Burnaby Costco outlets due to COVID-19 crowd size limitations?
The warehouse giant Costco has rolled out a new home delivery service that allows shoppers to pick through the food retailers' oversized shelves with the click of a button.
The new service is being launched with the online food delivery platform Instacart, meaning you don’t need a Costco membership to have many of the stores' products delivered to your door, according to a press release.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Costco has been limiting the number of shoppers inside, leading to long lineups in the parking lots of the outlets in the Brighton and Still Creek areas.
Costco Canada has also created a new Canadian member-only site, which provides member benefits and same-day delivery, also through Instacart.
Instacart counts residents in Burnaby are among the 70% of Canadian households it delivers to, according to the press release.
Like many grocery chains, restaurants and retailers, Costco has rolled out a variety of new measures amid the COVID-19 pandemic, including physical distancing measures, sanitization and Plexiglass barriers.
