Costco fever hits Iceland with anticipated store opening this morning

A great number of people were gathered outside the new Costco store in Kauptún, Garðabær, a municipality of Reykjavik this morning.

Search and rescue teams employed for Costco's opening

The store opened its doors at 9 am this morning and a few people turned up before then, with one guy standing in line since midnight, reports mbl.is. 

Around 40 thousand people in Iceland have signed up for a Costco card, as a membership is necessary to make purchases in the store.
