RELATED: Costco on the move to West Kelowna?

It has only been a few days since the rumors of the Kelowna Costco moving to West Kelowna. Shoppers voice both sides of the possibility with arguments that the move could benefit shoppers in Peachland and Penticton, and arguments that the move would make Costco shopping much harder for residents of Lake Country and Vernon.

Okanagan residents have taken to FaceBook to voice opinions, including why there shouldn’t just be a second Costco added to West Kelowna.

While there has been no confirmation as of yet on the move, Kelowna and West Kelowna residents will await together for further news. See more opinions, and lend thoughts to the Capital News FaceBook post here.
