ט"ו אדר ה' אלפים תש"ע
Melbourne’s Costco Docklands store yesterday (Tuesday 2nd March, 2010) launched their Pesach ‘store’ in the presence of the Israeli Ambassador to Australia, Yuval Rotem as well as Costco’s Australian Managing Director, Patrick Noone and the Victorian Government's representative, Mr Tony Lupton, MP.
Costco are bringing in container loads of matzos, grape juice and other products which they are selling at greatly reduced prices some up to 50% cheaper than normal. Israeli Ambassador, Yuval Rotem stated that he was proud of the fact that many of the products being sold were sourced from Israel.
Costco has over 560 stores worldwide. This is first store in the world to have a specific Passover store and 'roadshow' promoting these products.
Costco already sell a small range of Kosher products, many with Rabbinic approval from Kosher Australia, the Orthodox Union of America (OU) as well as other Rabbinic authorities. Costco recently added Kosher chickens and small goods to their range sourced from Melbourne's Solomons kosher butchers. Costco we believe may also consider the possibly of importing Kosher beef once the ban on imports has been lifted.
The continuation of this venture and expansion of additional kosher food products will depend upon the patronage of the jewish community.
What better time to start your Pesach shopping than by support this new venture.
Costco is located at 381 Footscray Road, Docklands, Victoria
Has anyone checked this out yet? I would love to know what sort of prices we are talking about before schlepping out there.
