Personally, I LOVE Costco! My wife hates it! You have to put up with a certain amount of people just stopping in the middle of everything, and being patient. The prices are good, but you generally buy in a 55 gallon drum. We also have a membership to Sams club, but I kind of hate that place, for no specific reason. Tip: if you're shopping at Costco, don't eat lunch before going. They feed you well with all the samples.
