CLOSED – Most B.C. Costco Photo Centres Shutdown (Locations Inside)
If you have recently stopped by you local BC Costco warehouse, you may have noticed that your local Costco Photo Centre has closed! It was a little sad to see Costco dismantling a service that I use on a regular basis, however, the move to online services no doubt makes financial sense. I already upload the photos I want printed using the app, and getting them mailed to me (although it may take a couple of days longer) doesn’t really seem to be a large barrier.
Some people may miss some of the following services provided at the Photo Centre which includes:
- Warehouse Prints and Enlargements
- Custom Framing and Plaques
- Passport Photos
- Ink Refills and DVD Film Transfers
You should be able to get all other previous products through their online portal https://www.costcophotocentre.ca/Home
It looks like the Photo Centres are only disappearing in BC so far as I can still order photos online to Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. We will have to keep an eye on what happens next!
Remaining British Columbia Costco Photo Centre Locations
All hope is not lost. There are still a few BC locations left that have a Warehouse Photo Centre. These locations include:
- Port Coquitlam
- Prince George
If your Costco is one of there locations, you are in luck! Alternatively, you can always order your photos to one of these locations for local pickup.
