Checked out the new Costco Business Center in Commerce today which opened July 23rd. Nice thing was it was 10am and there couldn't have been more than 50 customers in the store.
130,000 square foot store designed for businesses in the food service, convenience store, hospitality and office. Think they're trying to compete with places like Smart & Final and Restaurant Depot.
First section when you walk in is dedicated to food service with cooking utensils, pots, pans, commercial appliances, restaurant and bar supplies.
Bakery where the dozen packs of muffins, scones, danish etc...are individually wrapped. Didn't see birthday cakes. Eight isles with just bottled/canned beverages, but no alcohol or wine. Huge walk in refrigerated area with meats you can buy by the case.
Lot's of items and brands you won't find at a regular Costco, and some of the same items you'll find at Costcos, but not all of them.
They have a business center where they make copies, banners, signs, business cards promotional items and even t-shirts.
You can buy gas there too.
They don't have the following:
Photo Dept, pharmacy, optical department, alcohol (beer or wine), electronics, clothing, books, tire center, vitamins, toiletries.
Outdoor foodcourt where unfortunately they serve the Kirkland hot dog. Had the Polish sausage and it really wasn't much different than the Hebrew Ntaional.
Open to all Costco Members
