Costco has become my favorite place to shop! You can save enough on the price of milk alone to pay for your yearly membership. They have the best meats around whether it be chicken, beef or seafood. All is government inspected and very fresh and of the highest quality. I have found the produce to be excellent also. It is fresh and costs a lot less than what you would pay in a regular grocery store. Even though items are packaged in large sizes I find that they last because they are so fresh and well packaged. Costco also seems to have the best price on gasoline even though the price of gas seems to be going up everyday. They have nice, courteous, friendly helpful employees to help through out the entire store.
