In less than 48 hours Costco will open its 11th Australian warehouse. This store will be Queenslands much needed second warehouse. This morning I was invited to a sneak peak tour that was guided by Costco Australia CEO Patrick Noone. After the tour I got to spend a few minutes chatting with Mr. Noone. We discussed upcoming locations around Australia and the introduction of online trading via costco.com.au which is due to launch sometime in November of this year. In the mean time be sure to check out a few pics I snapped of the nearly read to go Costco Ipswich store.

Update: The May 2nd opening date has been confirmed by head office this morning. This news originally broke yesterday morning and its not an April Fools joke. 

Well we cannot reach Costco Australia for confirmation on this its pretty obvious by the flyers being received in the Ipswich QLD area today that Thursday May 2nd is the official opening date for Costco Ipswich QLD. See the screen shot below one of our social fans uploaded for us. So there you have it Ipswich .. just over a month to go!

As a self confessed granola addict I was pretty excited to try out Brookfarms granohlaah. This granola has a great mix of fruit and nuts, hemp seeds, super grains and a touch of Belgian chocolate. I have to say this is one of the most uniquely mixed granola's I've ever had. The touch of Belgian chocolate is what really does it for me. Its not overwhelming amount of chocolate .. just enough to give this granola a really unique taste. One thing I discovered almost by accident is that this granola is really good all on its own without milk which means it doubles as a really good trail mix. Since it comes packages in a 1 kilo resealable bag its super easy to chuck it in the car for those longer car trips to keep the kids quiet with a healthy snack. This granola is currently available from all Costco locations for $19.59 for a 1 kilo bag. Brookfarm granohlaah is made right here in Australia in Byron Bay NSW. Check out their website for more information. www.brookfarm.com.au

There is nothing more frustrating than watching a shiny new multi million dollar Costco warehouse that is ready to go but is being held up by red tape / third party contractors and is completely out of Costco's control. We're not going to speculate on what is holding things up but we did want to at least let everyone know the answer to the question that is being asked 50 times a day on our social media channels. When is Costco Ipswich QLD. opening? The answer is we don't know. I have heard a lot of speculation and rumours that Costco Ipswich is going to open sometime between now and May with May being the worst case scenario. As you can imagine this is bad news for all the people that were hired to work at the new store and also for all the customers who were looking forward to shopping. So there's not much else to tell you at this point. As soon as we know the exact opening date we will post it. Until then please be patient or at least be understanding in the knowledge that if it were...
