I spent like 300$ today on Kirkland polo shirts and food. Those madras lentils are great I don't know how I've skipped over them for so long.

Praise be to Costco.

Costco Iceland opened this week. Over 40k memberships sold, the island only has 330k people. They were running out of shopping carts on Thursday :getin:

I'm on vacation on Iceland currently and was actually at the Costco on Thursday and confirm it was crazy. The membership line when I was there was like 300 people deep and growing. Costco had filled its parking lot and was starting to take over the nearby Bonus grocery store and IKEA parking lot.

The Costco itself is pretty similar to the ones in the states with some minor differences. Everything in Iceland is about 2-3 times more expensive than the US. They still have a food court and a gas station. The gas station was about 20 cents cheaper per liter than all the other gas stations in Iceland. We met a retired US army guy that was working as a gas station attendant and he was pretty cool. He moved back a few years ago when he retired because his wife is Icelandic. The food court was pretty good too. It's more expensive than US but still a good deal compared to rest of the island. Iceland has hot dog shacks everywhere that they are proud of but the Costco dog blows them away with 1/4 lb of tube meat goodness. Here is a pic of the food court (100kr = 1 USD)

$4 was cheap compared to rest of the island prices. A little wiener Iceland dog was at least 4.50 everywhere else. The Iceland Costco food court didn't have a onion roller thing though.

edit: the rotisserie chicken was $12. About in line with everything else.

Passed a Costco in Iceland last week. My question is, how could this be?

Stco goes against every principal os shopping in Iceland; namely that things must be bought in small quantities and be expensive as poo poo. Anyone ever been to this branch?

I was there like a week after it opened and apparently like 10% of the population of Iceland had already became members. I think anywhere you go people still want 100% all beef hot dogs (with refill) and a case of toilet paper at reasonable prices. The prices at Costco were still more expensive than US prices but a little cheaper than the rest of the island.

How was the product selection? The whole thing is like the opposite of those BONUS stores.

Honestly it seemed pretty similar to the American Costco's with some Iceland stuff thrown in. The snack aisle had some kinder chocolate but was otherwise a dead ringer for the American Costco snack aisle. The bakery and meat sections were pretty similar but I think they had more lamb selection than normal. All the natives that I saw there seemed to love it.

Let me know how that shark vacuum is, i'm in the market for a new vacuum and that looks pretty nice.

The one we got was the navigator lift-away Shark. I like it so far. It is definitely better than our old Hoover wind tunnel. The detachable lift-away canister is nice for stairs or high places. The wheels are nice and swively and it is easy to maneuver. Dust disposal is also easy. The only weird part is the extension arm and pet brush accessories don't have a storage spot on the vacuum itself. Overall it seems to be worth the 120$.

I only wear urban star jeans because of the stretchiness. It allows me to eat as many 'co dogs as I want and my pants still fit.

My wife decided to be fancy and buy the Wild Caught Never Frozen Salmon from the 'Co once.

We take it home directly, chop it up and sprinkle some pepper, salt and lime on it. Delicious looking.

She gets the pan ready while I'm rolling the fish around in seasoning. I pick up one of the chunks with the tongs and I notice something that looks like a strand of hair or a plastic fibre.

That's weird.

I grab a knife to scrape it off and The loving thing recoils from the knife once it makes contact.

I drop it in the sink and look at the rest of the salmonbits soaking in lime.

Little glass filaments writhing around.

That's when I learned about parasitic worms and basically peaced out of Wild Caught fishies.

My dog has Addisons Disease and the best treatment for him is a drug called Percorten. If he doesn't get this drug once a month, he will die. There has been a factory issue and Percorten is incredibly hard to find, and is out of stock nearly everywhere.
But when I asked Costco Pharmacy, they found some and had it filled 20% cheaper within a single day. Which is really good because my dog needs a new dose in 2 weeks.
