Costco North Lakes store evacuated

COSTCO North Lakes was evacuated this afternoon and the store remained closed for about an hour.

A spokeswoman for the store said people were evacuated from the store about 2.30pm as a result of a false alarm.

The store reopened about an hour later and staff and customers were allowed back inside.

The store is at 17-39 Cook Court.

It remains the only Costco in operation in Queensland after the opening of the store at Bundamba, near Ipswich, was delayed.
