Planted cherry tree that I purchased approx 1 month ago from Costco in Toronto, Ontario and it’s dying. Any info/solution will be greatly appreciated.

Don't you think it's worth checking the department if the others look good or not? It just seems a bit late to purchase if it's bareroot.

I agree with Jafar. That tree wasn't healthy.

You’re over East, like me … cept several hundred miles North; I’m on the Blue Ridge in Virginia..  Searching online, my guess would be ‘Cherry Blossom Wilt.’  Here’s some of what I found: 

Blossom wilt is a fungal disease of apples, pears, plums, cherries and related ornamental trees. It kills blossoms, spurs and small branches.

You may see the following symptoms: Brown and shriveled blossoms and leaves on the fruiting spurs at flowering time. Small, buff-colored pustules of the causal fungi on dead tissues. Usually seen under wet conditions.

-- Online photos look similar to your cherry tree’s condition.  If you were in Ontario Oregon … maybe not..  But over East, it seems to be a good year for fungus & bacteria Confused   If you’ve not yanked it, you can search further for possibilities and recommendations..
