  4. West end Costco is worth the drive just to miss the crowds. Everything seems bigger there. First thing in the morning on a week day and you’re golden

    • I couldn’t agree with this more but even the one on 149 st and yellowhead is awesome, I was there today at opening and it was a dream 🙂 everything was clean and organized. I live closer to the one on the southside and I would still drive to the either the westend or 149 Street

  5. I usually go 1-1.5 hours after opening. The first rush of people at the door opening are usually finishing shopping and getting in the checkout lines.

    Watch the dates, busier of course around paydays. Just before dinner is usually quiet.

    • I’ve had people literally smash into my cart (with my son in it!) with their cart, just to be the first ones through the door. Right at opening is brutal.

    We get to the parking lot about 15 minutes before it opens. If you have a list and don’t wander too much, it’s not that bad at the till! No samples yet though.

    Check the Costco website for the store you want to go to- It tells you the peak times for each store

  28. Go to Sherwood Park Costco or the one on Winterburn Road. The one on 91st is the busiest Costco in Canada I’ve heard.

  29. Lisa Poitras Lisa Poitras says:

    I go 45 mins before closing. When they start turning off the lights the lineups go down really fast. No lineups to the clothing area.

  30. True you can get a gift card and go!

  31. I shop at the Clareview store and I find if I go on a weekday at around noon and not just before a long weekend it is not that busy in and out in an hour.

  32. I dont get how people say you “save” money at costco every 2 weeks my bill was between 800-1200 way to much when i can go to any other store for less bulk isnt always better

    [0]
    • WOW! What were you buying for $800-1200 every two weeks?! haha. I’ve never spent close to that much and we go once a month usually for our family of 3. You do save money if you shop properly. For example, buying toilet paper, paper towels, and Ziploc bags in bulk save you a ton of money than if you buy them anywhere else one at a time! And it lasts you a lot longer. Ground turkey, beef and chicken thighs are also much cheaper – and when we get home we separate them in baggies and freeze so they last us a long time.

  33. Close to closing isn’t so bad weeknights.

  34. That is literally THE busiest Costco in Canada. They confirmed it. So……. I wouldn’t expect a quiet time

    [0]
  35. I used to go when they opened the doors. First thing in the morning. Best time

  36. Erin Julien Erin Julien says:

    I avoid that one at all costs. But the cashier there did tell me that the best time is on a weekday right at 3pm when kids are getting out of school.

  38. I find st.albert is the best one to go to i find its great not always busy.

  39. Amber Lee Amber Lee says:

    Pick any other Costco except that one! Any other Costco will always be more quiet than that one even though it is smoking busy too! I can’t step foot in the 91st Costco. If you want to see a different side to you as a human being that you had no clue existed… By all means shop in that location! Otherwise avoid it like the plague!

  46. Anna Denby Anna Denby says:

    I lived right across the street from the one on 91st but drove to the west end one by river Cree to get away from the crowds. I even went on a Saturday and didnt die! 91st is always busy. People are lined up at 9:30am even on a Monday morning.
