Food queue the one to watch at IKEA Canberra

Ross and Kim Morgan

Visitors to IKEA on its opening day told RiotACT the crowds were much smaller than they’d expected, and that there was no wait to get into the store when it opened for the first time.
The only part of the store that looked busy enough to cause any aggravation was the restaurant, where a substantial queue [...]

Costco petrol no longer cheaper?

By 24 February 2015 HEADLINE ARTICLE
Ask RiotACT

I filled up at Costco on 22 January at $1.16 per litre. Checking Woolies fuel app on 23 January it would appear that the airport is the same price as most other outlets in the ACT at $112.9.
Does this mean that Costco is no longer offering cheaper petrol than anywhere else? I thought this would happen. [...]

Canberra motorists have been treated to a drastic reduction in the price of fuel since the opening of Costco’s petrol station in early December.
On a trip to the Majura Park precinct just before Christmas, I was surprised to see unleaded fuel down to $1.17 a litre at both the Costco and the nearby Woolworths petrol [...]

Hi all – long time reader but first time poster here.  I’ve seen some heart-warming stories on RiotAct and am really hoping mine will be one of them!

I came, I saw, I Costco’d

By 22 July 2011

I went to Costco’s opening day because of the lure of free eggs. I figured we’d paid our $60 joining fee so we might as well get a freebie and I was hoping that 8am on Friday would be more manageable then the expected craziness over the weekend. It was great- I was in and [...]

I guess the recent addition of a Woolworths petrol station at Majura Park should have been a [...]

Today Chief Minister Stanhope is celebrating this vindication of his economic leadership.

Costco cometh to Canberra

By 22 October 2010

Australian retail watchers have been speculating that as part of the mammoth Costco chain’s push into the buoyant Australian economy they might open an outlet here in Canberra.
A keen eyed reader has noticed they’re staffing up.
