This Costco- is it any cop?

timidviper Fri 19-Aug-11 23:50:47

I've just been today and I love it!

Wish they'd build one nearer to me though, I have a 45-50 minute drive to get there. If it was nearer I'd use it for my main shopping as the meat and fresh stuff is all lovely

Maybe if it's wool? confused

we use it regularly. Things we buy:

Buffalo mozzarella (huge tubs)
Washing powder
Dishwasher tablets
Razor blades

If we're having a party we usually get a tray of croissants/pains au choc, danish pastries and some pizzas.

Not everything is cheaper, and you have to have room to store it. Worth taking a receipt from your usual supermarket to check prices.

It's no good, I have to ask... Loopy - what do you do that uses so many razor blades it makes Costco cost effective?? or are you stocked up for the Apocalypse (Zombie or Otherwise) with a supply to last for years and years??

LeBOF Sat 20-Aug-11 00:03:22

Good for parties.

LeBOF Sat 20-Aug-11 00:04:21

Oh, and random large objects, like telescopes or fountains.

LoopyLoopsTootyFroots Sat 20-Aug-11 00:06:40

We are stocked up thus.

We will never run out of razor blades of the Venus variety. Nor bin liners.

TrillianAstra Sat 20-Aug-11 00:34:14

And your telescope shed is well-stocked wink

LeBOF Sat 20-Aug-11 00:38:21

Ooh, they do Venus razor blades? Excellent.

They send out a passport (and have instore) of special offers.
I always check on-line Sainsburys prices before I go.
But some things are practically half price.
Alot of the cleaning products are Professional grade.

J2O , Appletise, BinBags, foil and clingfilm
Nuttela, Heinz tomato ketchup

I bought a Kenwood hand held mixer which was £15 cheaper than instore.

Last year my DD got sheepskin boots (Ugg style ) Kirkland brand

TrillianAstra Sat 20-Aug-11 00:48:46

I think LeBOF and LeQueen should have a LePonce-off grin

LordOfTheFlies Sat 20-Aug-11 01:07:54

And apparently the Christmas stock is in already. Yay.

Might go tomorrow.
Hope I haven't missed the Hallowe'en stuff.

BTW they retail to traders hence they always have stock for 3-4 months ahead.

my freezer needs filling

is it worth it to seek out this costco do we think?

LeBOF Sat 20-Aug-11 01:16:15

I have a subliminal Gallic Shrug. It gives me the edge grin

I want to produce a catalogue.

Yes, it's ok. It's cheaper of course. But only if you are buying top brands anyway. If you like, I dunno, nescafe, then it's cheaper to buy it in costco. If you normally have tesco value range stuff then costco won't save you money grin

I've got a costco card and a bookers card. I find bookers cheaper, because they do cheapo brands (happy shopper type stuff!) and big tubs - catering supplies. which works out very cheap.

Catsmamma Sat 20-Aug-11 08:38:16

they sell giant jars of jellybelly jelly beans for about a tenner


TheHumanCatapult Sat 20-Aug-11 08:45:01

hmm how do we get a costco card ? .I always look liek im bulkbuying when shopping ahyway

bedheadz Sat 20-Aug-11 08:50:14

I heart Costco, its like a day out. Sad I know but I am easily pleased. Brilliant for chrismas stuff, meat, and fish.

You have to be in business, or get a spouses card or have someone who is in business give you a card or be in one of the qualifying professions.
