    One of my local store got shutdown and got open as a Halloween store. How do they stay open?

    I don't think it's hurting Amazon that much. No way am I going to find what I want at Cosco.

    I don't think its business model will be successful in developing countries.

    Costco doesn't sell as much variety as Amazon. Also Amazon has prime video VOD. Also there's. O lines on Amazon.

    I have never once been proud of my Ikea construction. I've just been tired and irritated that I had to do it at all. Maybe it's time to start hiring a kid to come do it.

    Anyone know what the "float" is? I just learned something!! I had no idea they made so much of the cash with the membership fee!!! Just like an insurance company!! Wow!

    This is how the old world works. Indonesia and Peru where I live both do this same thing. The retailers go for the holiday sales. Ramadan...Santa whatever in Peru. Toko and tienda! They sell what's happenin! Nothing new under the sun!

    Better wages makes employees more productive and happier?! It also makes client happier with theirs purchases and possibly more loyal creating a win win situation for the employer?!?!?!?!?!

    Costco lets you buy online, without a membership.

    Costco has higher skilled workers because they need more forklift and membership support so they would be paid more. This is my theory so might not be true
