Costco, which operates a warehouse store in each of Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra, has requested room to build petrol stations at a second store slated for Sydney and for its first in Brisbane, and is awaiting council approval on both. If the petrol outlets are approved, it will be the first time Costco can offer petrol to its local members along with its range of drastically discounted food, liquor, clothing and electrical products that has made its warehouse-style outlets so popular since they arrived in Australia three years ago.

Activities for Kids

Looking for activities for kids under two in Melbourne. The Melbourne for Kids has a intensive list to help parents looking to spend some quality time with kids. Melbourne for Kids was founded in 2009. It is a creation of Renata Fortes . Renata is a creative person who has worked in the online marketing and advertising world since 1998. She decided to develop this website because she found that Mums and Dads needed some help to find things to do to entertain their kids. As well as this, it would help all young parents to be inspired in finding things to do with their family With extensive internet experience Renata developed a competitor analysis for this project and she found that there was no user-friendly websites that displayed kids activities in Melbourne. So for this narrow niche she developed a concept where with only three clicks visitors can find many child friendly activities. This concept makes the Melbourne for Kids website a quick and easy tool to use.
