Boxes of consumer goodies are stacked as high as the eye can see at this international chain store – In Short
Formerly known as the Price Club, this large membership-only warehouse is chock-full of almost any consumer product under the sun-in bulk, of course. With goods ranging from high-end electronics to outdoor furniture to fresh lobster, this wholesale superstore has got it (lots and lots of it!). While the high-volume and low prices appeals mainly to families and business, it's not uncommon to find college students trolling the various aisles for free food samples. The various membership options offer a range of plans, all reasonably priced. A word of warning to shopaholics: If you leave home without a list, you might spend more than you bargained for with all the deals offered.
Careful – Costco can really leave your pocket book empty with the belief your saving money. The only area of the warhouse where their are some real savings to be had is on food. Most people talk about how they saved on an item or a couple items, you are going to have save and buy a lot of groceries to breakeven on the membership fee you floated them. You are buying in bulk so how often can go during a period of time. Further, surrounding stores always promote sales which are generally a better value than Costco. I have seen at this warehouse a dependence on the store brand, KIrkland, to offset a declining variety in their inventory, also. I won't mention the service aspect of the store, because Costco, in general, has always been below average in my experience. It's definitely buyer be ware with this place
Savings like no other – So, you may not want to shop here if you live alone because they sell everything in bulk...OR you may and save yourself some trips to the grocery store! But I really enjoy coming here.....They have juice, fruit, salad, meat, etc...they even have furniture and clothes, appliances, jewelry...i like it alot....and yes! their outside food stand is great and cheap...the pizza, hot dog, smoothie, ice cream...very delicious at a reasonable price...so you can treat yourself after a tiresome shopping experience..i did say they have stuff in bulk! so things can get heavy
Excellent Savings – This is a great family shopping experience - There's so much to see. You have to try one of their Hot Dogs and 20 oz. drink for only 1.50.
