Costco Wholesale Corporation (commonly shortened to Costco) is an American multinational corporation that operates a chain of membership-only big-box retail stores (warehouse club). As of 2022, Costco is the fifth largest retailer in the world and is the world’s largest retailer of choice and prime beef, organic foods, rotisserie chicken, and wine as of 2016.
Admittedly, it isn’t hard to love the warehouse store that is estimated to have over 90 million card-holding members. Costco offers an exclusive shopping experience for its members, which includes anything you could ever need to live comfortably – and it’s all in bulk.
Selling everything from engagement rings to groceries, Costco is the master at giving shoppers the best bang for their buck. Plus, its in-house Kirkland Signature brand drives prices down even more, which further endears the company in the hearts of its shoppers. But for many Costco frequenters, the store is more than a place to pick up value products.
The low prices are probably Costco’s main appeal. A lot of Costco members agree that to make the membership fee worth it – $60 for a basic Gold Star membership and $120 for a Gold Star Executive one – shoppers should spend between $3,000 and $4,000 a year. A Colorado-based executive member agreed that good products at low prices are one of Costco’s main draws.
Most Costco fanatics agree that the in-house food court is one of the best features of the store. For young kids, the food court at Costco is especially exciting. “You can get pizza or a hotdog, or a soda and ice cream,” said Matt, founder and editor of Costco Insider, a website that lets users know about upcoming deals and changes in Costco stores across the US. “And so there’s a lot of food that parents are willing to buy because it’s super cheap and it’s convenient and kids love it.”
