slanderous rambleings of "herb hunt" – Costco wholesale has had posted a false accusation by a person that isn't a member in Costco's database for months. Even after the victim of this was cleared of all allegations and put back to work. Perhaps anyone reading this would like to read what the general people have had to say about the accuser, see for yourself by going to Google, and looking up his more commonly used fake name "Adam Anglum" the people on Caller Complaint . com have some very interesting things to say about him. As for Costco, being a long time customer, Im very very disappointed in how they handled this. It reflects poorly on morals and ability to manage their websites after repeated attempts by wireless advocates employees and management to get Costco to remove this comment. It just shows how Costco cares for employees working in their facilities.
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.
avoid the wireless kiosk – wireless advocates might be reputable. but birdbrain shelly fuller undermines the company. stay away from them as long as she is there.
Getting Bad – This store is really run badly. The inventory has gotten so limited and of poor quality that I doubt I will continue my membership. Then add to that the customer service,which is horrible(especially at checkout) and all due is dread the day you go shopping their. Costco has really changed.
Glad its over! – To say I am happy to have let my membership expire is to belittle the point. Costco is nothing more than a sham when it comes to saving money. Everything, except some groceries items, are higher priced than the competition. How much money can you really save buying groceries, in bulk, when your membership costs $50. You can't be there every week to buy the same thing you bought the week prior, in crate size, unless your feeding the city. The quality of the stuff they have isn't even that good. Also, the lack of employees means terrible customer service and check out lines that go on forever. And don't get me started on the parking situation. This place was a nightmare I should have waken from long ago.
BEWARE OF THE WIRELESS KIOSK AT THIS COSTCO!!! – WARNING TO ALL SHOPPERS: BEWARE OF THE CELL PHONE KIOSK AT COSTCO'S. THE WIRELESS COMPANY IS RUN BY INCOMPETENT RIP OFFS. I HAD THE WORST ENCOUNTER AT THIS COMPANY CALLED WIRELESS ADVOCATES. SO I'D LIKE TO WARN OTHERS ABOUT A REALLY BAD ONE OUT THERE. THE COMPANY IS RUN BY IGNORANTS WHO DON;T KNOW DECENT COURTESY, AND ARE OUT TO MAKE QUICK BUCKS BY GETTING PEOPLE.
AVOID SHOPPING WEEKENDS, AND CLOSING TIME! – Costco has discriminating hours for thier high-volume business customers, closed to the "public" in the early AM. Just after 9 in the morning on weekdays is the best time to do your shopping there, as most people congest parking and checkout lanes after 11 (just before the lunch rush). I have still not seen "10 items or less" or "self checkout", because that is Costco's policy: is how they discourage you to buy less (any business would. If you know what you came to buy, don't have a cart, and don't want to wait 10-30 minutes standing in line, go to the return line / membership desk and ask to be checked out. Membership is not needed to buy from the food court either.
If you don't know them by now... – You should really get to know them, oooooo ooooooooooh... How great would it be to be able to get practically everything you wanted to buy all in the same place, many things in large quantities, and all for great prices? Welcome to Costco. If you haven't been there before, you will most likely be astounded at all the offerings (and I'll be astounded that someone still hasn't been to Costco, especially someone who knows how to use the internet). An abundance of foods, great quality veggies and fruits, nice meats, a great bakery, clothing that is excellent and excellently priced, I could go on and on but you shouldn't take my word for it. Go see for yourself!
it beats going to palomino's – can you really beat $1.50 for this? I guess not
