Coming to the Costco thread for advice: do they have good chicken fingers, like in the freezer section? That I can take out and bake and shovel into my goon maw? Thanks in advance.

Fixed that for you. Costco pizzas are far better than most company pizza party pizzas I've ever had.

I once ran an event at work and we decided we wanted hot dogs, we called up the local 'co and asked if we could order 50 dogs and drinks, they said sure, just give us an hour. Tastiest and Cheapest event we ever did.

Do Costcos still have photo departments? My local one got rid of it and now it's just an online order bullshit like Shutterfly so it's hot loving garbage. I figured they all got rid of the instore photo departments. Another reason I rock a dual membership to Sam's

I visited the costco for the first time yesterday. I told the tiny girl bouncer that I had no membership, but I wanted to see the promised land. She allowed me in, but only after reiterating 3-4 times that I couldn't buy anything.

At the end of my discovery tour, I was transfixed on this beauty.



But I blew it. I royally blew it, I had eaten too much for lunch.

Dang... and it comes with a drink and a refill? DANG IT

I don't understand why there's a person checking cards at the door; someone please explain it to me. Especially since I keep reading that in a lot of places you can still buy alcohol there without a membership.

Generally speaking, you can go in and use the washroom or get yourself a dog without showing your membership card by just scooting in via the out door.

They use it to count members entering and what type of member entered.

Can't they just gather that data from checkout? Are they concerned that there are a lot of people that are leaving without buying anything, and that they wouldn't be counted in that total? I really find the card checking to be confusing (and irritating.)

yeah it's kinda weird cause like, you can't buy anything without a card anyways outside of sections you'd be able to enter via the backdoor for.

Maybe it prevents the riffraff from taking all the free samples from those of us who are among the chosen.

I got the executive membership one year, and it didn't turn out to be worth it, so I downgraded but they didn't give me a new card.

And they had another girl bouncer checking people's receipts when they were going through the out door and writing something on each of their receipts. (Probably "I love you" or giving them her personal number... hot)

It weirded me out that the store staff are dressed in plain clothes, and not even wearing a vest or something. At first I thought they were really enthusiastic customers tearing into product and searching for just the right thing. And they would stare at me was I went by, and I was like, these must be the guardian customers I've heard about on conspiracy websites.

I think the most important reason for this is to make sure that members have their cards on them when they enter the store.


If they didn't check, people would go pick out a poo poo ton of stuff, get to the register, and get denied since they forgot their card or "forgot" their card.

I love Costco like family, so I'm not trying to disparage them here, but the food court pizza is not good pizza. They don't even use fresh dough per se, it's more like a premade wafer of bread that they put toppings on.

The proposition of Costco pizza is clear:

1) Like all cheap pizza, it's good when hot, and overall it's great value for casual instances like game night or whatever
2) You get 5,000 calories for $10

So basically, it's great for its specific purpose. Where you lose me is your insistence that it's objectively good pizza, because it's obviously not.

Costco dough is real and uses a rad machine to flatten it. Also it rules.
