We are excited to shop at the new Costco in Australia. It will be the first one built in Australia though it will be a half hour drive from our house. Anyway they are now taking membership applications and the Grand Opening will be in July I think. Hope we can make it. This is one of our favorite stores in the USA. Has saved us a lot of money over the years. You can see pictures of the construction (until they go live with shopping on their website) at http://www.costco.com.au/.
