It seems Costco has embarked on a vigorous drive to boost local memberships in advance of its Guelph store opening.
A Guelph business owner told me she fielded a call this month about buying a discounted, one-year, Costco membership. The deal is apparently also being offered with a money-back offer after that year if consumers are not satisfied.
The Costco recruiter also came to the business to complete the transaction.
The business owner said she believes she was approached because she's a Guleph Chamber of Commerce member and Costco was consulting a Chamber directory and connecting with all businesses/owners not listed as Costco members.
