Happy New Year's from London!

Happy New Year’s from London!

Are you having a big party to ring in the new year?  Maybe you were planning on stocking your liquor cabinet and fridge with goodies from Costco?  If so, you need to get over there sooner rather than later, like by Wednesday afternoon.  Costco is closing early Wednesday, December 31, anywhere from 5 pm to  6:30 pm (depending on where you live) for New Year’s Eve.  Costco stores in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Spain, and Korea and will be CLOSED on Thursday, January 1, for New Year’s Day.  If you’re in Scotland, Costco will also be CLOSED on 2nd January.  Costco Japan stores will have special hours from December 31 through January 1 from 9 am to 6 pm too.

So, if you’ve been putting off shopping for your New Year’s Eve party, you don’t have much longer to procrastinate.  You need to get all of your last minute shopping done for your festivities or for a special New Year’s Day meal in the next couple of days.  And don’t worry, Costco will be well stocked for all of the New Year’s party shoppers with lots and lots of champagne!

  • New Year’s Eve: Wednesday, December 31:
    • All US stores open 10 am to 6 pm;
    • All Canada, Australia stores open 9 am to 5 pm;
    • All UK stores open 10 am to 5 pm; some stores open at 9 am check online for your store’s hours;
    • All Spain stores open 10 am to 6:30 pm;
    • All Japan stores open 9 am to 6 pm.
  • New Year’s Day: Thursday, January 1:
    • All US, UK, Canada, Australia, Spain, and Korea stores CLOSED;
    • All Japan stores open 9 am to 6 pm.
  • 2nd January: Friday, January 2:
    • All Scotland stores CLOSED;

Hopefully it is clear to everyone when the stores near them are operating over the holidays.  I’m not sure what the holiday hours or closures are for Mexico or Taiwan because they aren’t listed on their websites.

Have a safe and happy New Year’s!
