Costco is open in Regina.
Just at a different facility.

The new building on Anaquod Road was filled with people lining up outside the building early Friday morning, after transitioning out of their old facility on University Park Drive.
Among the dignitaries in attendance was Mayor Michael Fougere, who called the store a “retail magnet.”
“You’ll be seeing some housing development happen as well,” he said. “This is the beginning of the continuation of the growth of our city.”
That point of view was echoed by CEO of the Regina and District Chamber of Commerce, John Hopkins.
“In some ways, it’s like the old shopping centre. You have the anchor tenants, whether it’s the Bay or something like that, then all the smaller stores come. That’s kinda what happens around these types of developments.”
