Costco To Offer Liquor Selection In Another Canadian Province
Who doesn’t love a trip to Costco? From the never-ending selection to the free samples, the fun never stops.
If you’ve ever been to Costco in the states, you may have noticed that, in some states, the retailer also sells alcohol. Yes, you heard us, booze in bulk.
Right now, the only Canadian province with a liquor selection available at Costco is Alberta.
But worry not, according to a report by CBC, Costco is planning on offering a selection of liquors to stores in Regina, Saskatchewan in the near future.

This sounds like really exciting news, however it’s important to note that if Costco succeeds in receiving a permit, it would drastically affect liquor prices in the area.
“For Costco to come into a market like that, they are definitely a big player and that will create pressure on the existing owners that are there, for sure,” explained the president and CEO of the Saskatchewan Hotel and Hospitality Association, Jim Bence, to CBC.
The retailer wants to sell alcohol at its 2110 Anaquod Rd. location on the east end of the city.
Last Wednesday, Saskatchewan established a new rule for liquor permits which determines that population size should affect how many liquor stores are allowed in towns or cities. This rule is enforced in every province, except for Alberta.
The Costco Canada Liquor stores (as they’re known in Alberta), appear to be located inside regular Costco stores.
Costco Liquor shoppers have access to Costco’s Kirkland Signature wine and spirits, including champagne, vodka, and liqueurs.
There’s no word yet on if Costco Liquors will expand into Ontario.
