Newcomers to Canada Choose Costco Banner as Number One Grocery Destination

Grocery shopping is on everyone’s mind as we head into the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday. For Newcomers to our country, Costco is the leading destination for groceries.

Costco is the primary grocery relationship for 25% of Newcomer households, it’s even more popular than among the general population of Canada’s six largest major markets. This is significant since Newcomers are big spenders when it comes to groceries.

And did you know that one-in-two Newcomer households bought at least some groceries online in the last six months? This too is higher than the numbers we are seeing for the general population, owing to younger life stage profiles of newcomers.
