The store was opened by Stevenage mayor Simon Speller, along with the branch's general manager Leigh Ormsby.

The Stevenage store is the 29th Costco to be opened in the UK, and offers a fuel station - which opened earlier this month - selling premium fuel for warehouse members.

Stevenage Borough Council granted permission for the store to be built on the former John Lewis depot site in March 2016, and a firm spokesman said at the time the wholesalers had hoped to opened in the summer of 2017.

But now, after delays, the store is open.
