Bulk discount retailer, Costco, will open its third Sydney outlet, and ninth store nationwide, at Marsden Park in Sydney’s northwest next week.
The Costco Marsden Park store, which will span 13,575sqm, will include a Costco fuel station, tyre centre, food court, optometrist, hearing aid services and fresh food production.
The site is located within the large format retail precinct at Sydney Business Park, in Marsden Park. Costco is the latest major retailer to open at the Business Park, which is one of Australia’s largest large format retail centres, spanning 115,000sqm in floor space.
Owen Walsh, Sydney Business Park project manager, said Costco is a welcome addition to Sydney Business Park, which, is fast becoming a major shopping and warehouse distribution and logistics destination for the region.
“We are pleased to be part of Sydney’s rapidly growing northwest, and it is rewarding to see the community growing around Marsden Park and the Sydney Business Park,” Walsh said.
Walsh said in the last five years, the Marsden Park community has completely transformed with the establishment of major new retailers opening their doors.
“New retail has created new jobs and that has attracted people to relocate here to be closer to where they work or to find work,” he said. “The next five years will see even more dramatic transformation with major commercial towers to be built as well as a major town centre. By 2025, the surrounding North West Growth Centre is expected to support 177,000 new residents and 61,900 new homes.”
Sydney Business Park has secured approximately $600 million in investment to date, on track as part of the broader $3 billion project.
Patrick Noone, Costco Wholesale Australia managing director, said the company was very pleased with the new site and said the store opening marks another significant milestone for the company.
Costco joins other retailers at the centre including Aldi, Baby & Toddler Town, Beacon Lighting, Bunnings Warehouse, Carpet Call, Coles Express, Costco Wholesale, Forty Winks, Home Consortium Marsden Park, Home Hub Marsden Park, Ikea, JB Hi-Fi Home, Knotts Pine, Lindt Factory Outlet, Reece, Repco, Shell, Snooze, and The Good Guys, among others.
