WDS ready for Costco Iceland opening!

After years of planning and preparation, next week will see Costco Wholesale open the doors to its newest warehouse in Reykjavik, Iceland. Having worked in partnership with Costco for over 20 years in the UK, WDS is extremely excited to be chosen to provide the sampling and demonstration service for this exciting new location; our first outside the UK!

We can’t wait to get started when the doors open to the public next week (23rd May) with our newest team on hand to provide Icelandic members with the cornerstone of the Costco Wholesale experience – the opportunity to sample new and exciting products throughout the warehouse. The new WDS demonstration and sampling will be supported by experienced members from the UK team who will be joining their new Icelandic colleagues to ensure the opening day (and exclusive VIP evening on 22 May) runs smoothly, despite the large numbers expected to visit the warehouse.

Final preparations being made to the Costco warehouse in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Large crowds are expected when the doors open as Icelanders rush to see this new shopping experience for themselves. The 14,000 m2 store at Kauptún in Garðabær, near Reykjavík, will join Costco’s other warehouses in Europe and North America. It will be the only Costco store in Europe to prepare sushi on site and sell medication in an on-site pharmacy. Among its other offerings, Costco will sell fuel at lower than average prices.
