The ceo kept on getting pressure from his execs to raise the price of hotdogs but he keeps saying "no, gently caress you"

He also fixes their maximum makrup at 15%

There's weird regional variations in the cosrco food courts. Dor 8nstance the ones in jersey sell burgers amd fries for some reason.

Meanwhile other places sell gelato

Ive seen italian sausage and also brata sold alongside the hot dogs in various regions. Not both at the same place though

The people who complain about "paying a membership fee to shop" blow my fuckin mind and are usually shortsighted poor people.

Like dude you make that up in savings in a few trips. You come out wayyyyyy ahead its not even close.

They are the same people who pay their car insurance on a monthly basis. The simple math just scares them.

The whole point of the fee from the start is to keep out the poors who would ruin things like free samples

Yo the giant bags of Beer Chips are loving legit. Delicious.

Also the giant can of honey roasted mixed nuts that's on sale for $10 right now is amazing. Not even lovely peanuts, its full of macadamia, walnuts, and the good kinds.

Are those beer chips actually beer flavored? Or just intended to be eaten with beer like beer nuts

I used to but they stopped selling anything bigger than size 12s

Why did they stop selling them? It's hard enough finding cool kicks in size 15 and now I gotta buy my socks on Amazon like a maroon.

Also I got my father-in-law this thing a few weeks ago from Costco:

24 different beers for every day in December until Christmas. Anyway long story short but I went back yesterday and was going to buy myself one but they were completely gone! There had to be 30 of them there when I got the one a few weeks ago.

This is cool and I want ome now

Yeah don't buy the charmin. You get much much more bang for the buck with the Costco tp and it's like wiping your fat goony hemmeroided rear end with silk too

Charmin red is good, it's charmin blue that's bad. Unfortunately, costco doesn't always carry the red so it's one of those intermittently available items

It's a gimmick because people aren't buying new tvs. It's the same reason they came out with 3d tvs. Trying to reinvent the wheel to get people to replace their working ones.

Get a non-curved OLED if you can. Sadly they are less common than curved ones but they are the best looking tvs ever made. You don't even need a 4k one. Though I think there's only one OLED, non-curved, 1080p tv in existence.

Buying a TV at Costco is always smart. You get a two year return policy.

What tv is that, I want another OLED TV but I'm sick of paying for 4K

BJ's is like Costco for lower-middle-class people

Hot dog chat: part of the reason the hot dog have stayed $1.50 is that they stopped selling Hebrew Nationals, and built their own meat packing plant. Yes, Costco packs it's own weiners.

So their secret to keeping prices low is to cut out the Hebrew nationals?
