Business and commercial: Costco offers online shopping, delivery

One of the largest bulk buying chains in Canada has introduced a new service. In business and commercial news, Costco is now adding online shopping and delivery to its roster of services. The company is putting its feelers out for the new service in Southern Ontario first before rolling it out to the rest of the province and into Quebec. Shoppers who spend upwards of $75 can take advantage of the service.

Costco is trying to remain competitive with its competition, like Amazon, which will soon be offering a similar service in Canada for groceries. Costco's online orders will be processed in Toronto by dozens of employees who have been hired for the company's new foray into online grocery sales. Costco Canada's senior vice-president said the company is starting this new venture in a small way to be able to provide the service Canadian members of the store expect.

For now, online sales won't include fresh fruit or vegetables, but that is likely in the future. Costco hopes online shopping will entice more Canadians to become Costco members. Many people shy away from the parking hassles and long lines in these bulk-buying super stores. Many consumers simply like the convenience of online buying.

Things are always happening in the business and commercial world in Canada. Whether entrepreneurs are wanting to add to their goods or services or wish to expand their interests, a lawyer in Ontario may be able to provide some assistance with business endeavours. Navigating the world of business can be both invigorating and perplexing. A lawyer's knowledge of the laws regarding business ventures can make challenges seem less daunting.
