It is a good day to be alive. Costco, the largest retailer in North America, has announced that it has started online deliveries in Canada. Unfortunately the debut is limited to people who live in Toronto area as well as Southern Ontario.
You can now stock up on hundreds of items such as non-perishable grocery items, beauty products and supplements. No matter what your heart desires those enormously large boxes of Costco products can be waiting for you at your door steps within days.
Costco says that delivery is now only available in the Greater Toronto area and southern Ontario and that they will be expanding their coverage in the future. So as long as you live in the hot and desirable postal codes of Toronto and Southern Ontario you can order and get it delivered for free. Barrie Ontario somehow made it on Costco delivery list even though it is officially in Central Ontario but places like Kingston and Ottawa and other provinces are not covered for now.
Costco launches grocery delivery in Canada. Good news for people who can't fit a 208 litre barrel of olive oil in their car.

Costco delivery is free and guaranteed within two days, as long as your order is $75 or more. Deliveries unfortunately can not be done over the weekend.
Costco Canada’s Senior Vice-President and Senior General Merchandise Manager Andrée Brien said
“We are starting on a smaller scale to ensure that we provide the level of service that Canadian members have come to enjoy across all of our businesses and services."
Andrée said that the service will eventually be rolled out to the rest of Ontario and Quebec.
Note deliveries do not include perishable items such as steak, fish and chicken. You would still need to get into your car and drive to go pick it up.
