Costco UK To Get Online Shopping Site Soon

October 2nd, 2012 · 2 Comments

If you’re a Costco shopper in the UK, you will soon be able to shop online for tons of things not found in the warehouses!  How exciting is that?  I’ve been waiting the entire time I’ve been in the UK for Costco to get going with the online shopping thing here in the UK.  But until very recently, the website wasn’t even providing that much useful information, let alone shopping.  However, there have clearly been some changes in focus this year because the website got an overhaul and now they have announced that online shopping will be coming soon too.

If you’re like me and can’t wait to shop Costco UK online, you can sign up for their email newsletter and get the latest about the website, as well as all of the offers and other assorted news items.  I’ve signed up for the newsletter and will certainly be keeping an eye on the site for the new online shopping.  And naturally, I will write a post as soon as they roll out the online store.  Unfortunately, all of the information they provide with regards to the timeframe for the online shopping is “Coming Soon”, but it can’t be soon enough for me.

If you are wondering what the online shopping site will be like, or what types of products they are likely to have, you can check out the Costco US or Costco Canada online sites for an example of what it will be like when Costco UK gets the online shopping up and running.  There are a lot of products for sale online that you’d never find in the warehouses, and there are some that are so big if you did find them in the warehouse, you’d probably have a hard time getting them home.   So, you get a different, wider, selection of products and don’t have to worry about how you’ll get it home.   There’s so many things that I’ve bought from Amazon in the last couple of years that I certainly could have purchased from Costco instead.  So, I’m really pleased to see that they will be updating the UK website with shopping sometime soon.  It would be great it they could get that running before the holidays, huh?

    Sounds interesting and looking forward to see what it is like in the U.K. – just checked out the t&c’s for shipping on the U.S. site and they don’t ship on request to Costco warehouses – I reckon that they are missing a trick to not at least offer that as an option.

    Marks and Spencer and John Lewis (and I’m sure others) offer this option, and it would be good to pick up stuff at our convenience rather than have to ensure the lottery of delivery times and dates. I guess we’ll just have to wait until it’s rolled out to see what the options are here in the U.K…..
