It's hard to justify a Costco membership when your job's a joke, you're broke and your love life's DOA (a.k.a. when you're living alone in downtown Toronto). But now you'll be able to stock your pantry with Kirkland's finest thanks to a new startup called Comfort.to.
This locally based grocery delivery service will bring Costo products right to your apartment doorstep. Vitaliy and Madeline Savitsky, a husband and wife team, launched the company.
"They compared prices of 1000s of products of regular grocery stores and found that Costco was cheaper (often by half price) and often of better quality, and they swore never to buy outside Costco again," a company rep told us via email.
"To solve this very real pain point in the hearts (and wallets) of consumers, they decided to start Comfort.to to bring smart grocery shopping to downtown living."
While not affiliated with the wholesale warehouse club, Comfort.to only offers products from Costco (from the Etobicoke Costco to be exact) and each delivery will cost you $10. The Comfort.to prices will be (on average) 5 per cent higher than what you'd find in store.
And yes, according to Vitaliy Savitsky, Costco is aware of what they're doing.
