You can find almost everything sold at Costco somewhere else (other than their own brand).

Costco is a warehouse store (similar to Sam's Club). Their own brand, Kirkland Signature, offers good quality products at lower prices. They have a good selection of lower priced meats. Beef is offered in choice and prime grades.

oh, thanks andy. there is a sam's club a couple of miles from me. i've never been inside because it's members only. i don't hear anyone singing sam's club's praises like i'm hearing about costco though. i have no use for bulk purchases but bargain priced and prime grade meats would deliver me to sam's club's doorstep in a heartbeat....

We've had Sam's Club memberships as well and they are also good. I don't think they do one day passes (you can ask). Alternatively, maybe a friend has a membership and they can give you a tour.

The cost of membership at Costco is paid back many times over during the year. Brand new books are usually half price. They sell everything, from Electronics the Clothing, Food to Over The Counter medicines. They also have a pharmacy, a tire center, bakery, eyeglasses...

Our nearest Costco is 3 and a half hours away. We get there once a year. They're building one that will be a 45 minute drive, and you can bet I'll get a membership! I posted a thread here recently asking about all the great stuff to be found at Costco, and got many great responses. Will try to dig it up.
