Costco looking to open 14 new UK stores

Costco is looking to open 14 new stores across the UK over the next two years.

The wholesale warehouse chain is currently looking at locations across the country. The retailer is looking at opening warehouses in the following locations, although nothing is confirmed just yet:

Bournemouth / Poole
South Glasgow
South East London
Wolverhampton / North West Birmingham
South West Birmingham

The American wholesaler is already set to open a new store in Glouster - Centric Park on Eastern Avenue, just off the M5 motorway.

Costco currently has 29 stores in the UK - including in Liverpool, Manchester and Glasgow - and the new sites planned would take the total up to 44.

The warehouse chain has partnered with property development company Chase Commercial to find and convert the new sites. Chase Commercial said it was looking for six to 12 acre sites to provide 150,000 sq ft buildings with 650 parking spaces.

Costco is also looking for sites which would allow them to develop a petrol filling and electric vehicle station. Justin Parker, director at Chase Commercial, told The Sun: 'We are really pleased to be partnered with Costco Wholesale UK to deliver further warehouse clubs for them throughout the UK.'

Costco is a chain retail store that sells items in bulk. It also sells its own brand items under the name Kirkland. Costco differs from other stores as you need to be a member to be able to shop there.
