man costco does not stock any loving mediums. They had some really comfy pullovers, but it was just chock full of L, XL, XXL. i wish they would stock a lot less of those since apparently no one buys them

did not get a hot dog last night, store was not too bad at 7:30 PM but the food court was slammed to the brim and wasnt about to wait 30 minutes for a dog while i had frozen stuff.

Dog first next time.

I also find their Larges to be more geared towards fat large than tall large. Not that I don't have some comfy clothes from costco to lounge around in but with L the sleeves are always too short and the gut is too billowy. Shoulders tend to be a good fit tho, just needs longer arms and more of a taper downwards.

Just got back from Costco...returned home with a lovely leg of lamb and a bag of cuties. I almost walked out with a bag of macadamia nuts and a few evergreen azaleas as well, but I decided not to today since I walked.

And yes, I had a dog and a drink. Life is good!

Imagine what it's like if you wear men's small. It sucks most of the time unless they do have some because it means I get to buy on steep discount when they inevitably go on clearance.
Planning on scoring more 32 degree shirts this season.

I went to Costco yesterday for the Seafood roadshow. I wanted 2 lbs of shrimp for our last Lenten dinner of the year. I left with the shrimp, a bottle of kirkland vodka, some laundry pods, mangoes, strawberries, dog treats, pasta, and a motherfuckin bicycle. $330 just like that.

Went to Costco expecting a slow store but forgot it was Good Friday. Place was packed. Luckily all lanes were open so checkout was fast.

I would have had an even better time IF THEY GOT RID OF THE SAMPLE TABLES THAT CAUSE 90 PEOPLE TO ABANDON THEIR CARTS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE AISLE TO SAMPLE A TINY AS PIECE OF CHEESE THEY WILL NEVER BUY

I really really hate the sample tables.

The sample tables help the lesser in the flock find delicious and very well priced vittles! Jim said that all must come and partake. PBUC

It is a beautiful thing when the sample lady has something you actually wanted to try. Also, I make sure to always say Thank You (remember they are not Costco employees)

I thought they sometimes are and sometimes aren't, depending on what is being sold

I always say thanks though

I would think that this is basic human decency, but I constantly see people just grab a handful of samples and run away without saying anything.

If you absolutely must go on a busy day, heed my advice: try to use the exterior aisles. Avoid anything that's not along the outer walls of the entire building, most samples seem to be at the inner aisle ends. It is no surety though; sometimes the outer walls also have samplers singing their luring songs. Lash yourself to the mast of your cart and plow headlong past them lest you find yourself in ruin!

The samples are a great way to get picky eater kids to try stuff they normally don't like. My kids want to try every drat sample and used to not eat fish until they had some salmon samples.

Costco is a vendor on Google Express. I've had good experiences with them for their Wal Mart stuff.

I ended up just getting a pack of those Lindor chocolates that are on sale. I got the variety pack, but the costco I went to also had packs of the mango and cream white chocolate ones. I wasn't brave enough to try those, but the person in line next to me bought 8 of them. I may have regrets...

The brownie bites. In the bread aisle, they come in a tub and will make you a hero if you take one to work or a party.
