US bulk discount retailer Costco will open its newest store in Marsden Park in Sydney’s north-west on August 30.

The store is located within the 256 hectare Sydney Business Park precinct, and will be the bulk goods giant’s third Sydney outlet and ninth store nationwide, it said in a media release.

Spanning 13,575 sqm, the store includes a Costco fuel station, tyre centre, food court, optometrist, hearing aid services and fresh food production.

Property Observer had reported earlier that Costco that the retailer had secured a 59,830 square metre site at the business park.

The site is within the large format retail precinct at Sydney Business Park, in Marsden Park.

The business park spans 115,000 sqm in floor space, making it one of Australia’s biggest Large Format Retail Centres. 

Other retailers at the business park include ALDI, Baby & Toddler Town, Beacon Lighting, Bunnings Warehouse, Carpet Call, Coles Express, Costco Wholesale, Forty Winks, Home Consortium Marsden Park, Home Hub Marsden Park, IKEA, JB Hi-Fi Home, Knotts Pine, Lindt Factory Outlet, Reece, Repco, Shell, Snooze, and The Good Guys.

Sydney Business Park project manager Owen Walsh said Costco joins a growing business and retail community in Marsden Park.

Sydney Business Park has secured nearly $600 million in investments to date, said the media release. 

“Costco Wholesale Australia is a welcome addition to Sydney Business Park, which is fast becoming a major shopping and warehouse distribution/ logistics destination for the region,” Walsh said.

It has an ongoing partnership with Marist 180 and Beacon Foundation to train and provide job placement opportunities and supporting local schools with businesses in the project.

“Our work with Marist 180 and the Beacon Foundation is starting to make an impact in the local community. The placement of almost 3,000 jobs, on our way to 30,000 jobs is really fast tracking the economic growth for the region,” Walsh added. 

“New retail has created new jobs and that has attracted people to relocate here to be closer to where they work or to find work. The next five years will see even more dramatic transformation with major commercial towers to be built as well as a major town centre. By 2025, the surrounding North West Growth Centre is expected to support 177,000 new residents and 61,900 new homes,” he said.

Costco Wholesale Australia managing director Patrick Noone added that the Marsden Park store opening indicates the retailer’s growth in the Australian market.

“Since we launched in Australia a decade ago, the Costco brand continues to be a standout success thanks to consumers who love the products we stock as well as our unique business model, which provides outstanding value to our membership base.”
