    I find the food cheaper for instance in a supermarket.

    The great problem is they do not put there prices on the UK sites.

    I also strugle to find vegetarian food too. They do mostly meat.

    The meat is excellent but they do also do some really nice vege stuff in my opinion. I recently bought some sweet potato pakoras and they were really nice.

    As for cheaper food I agree, in the supermarkets you can buy cheaper food, cheap brands etc but I have never ever seen like for like items cheaper in Asda than they are at Costco. Sometimes their beers have appeared to be cheaper but it has turned out that they were smaller cans so weren't comparable

    Agreed - the fresh stuff sold in the meat department is best.

    I also think that their fine wine selection is a really well kept secret! It has loads of high end wines on there as well as some popular wines at low prices.

    Last week I bought some Faustino but they also had Barolo, Plan de Dieu, Jim Barry, Neil Ellis, Coppola, Baron de Ley, Ygay.

    I was impressed.

    Maybe Costco should integrate their membership with weight watchers??

    Have you seen the new stuff they're doing for businesses? Mobile chip & pin debit card machines? payroll services? even private healthcare at a preferential rate for members. They're really cranking it up a notch!

    There is one in Sheffield. I got a free invitation to look round. It's just the same as Makro, cheap and tacky. I remain faithful to John Lewis, though for those on low income there are some bargains to be had.:icon_smile:

    It may be what you are thinking, yorky .... Most supermarkets chain the trolleys together now, so you need a pound coin to release one. This is returned to you when you replace the trolley.
