    We are Costco shoppers, and like buying certain no parishable Items in Bulk, like canned stuff. Has anyone else seen this article?

    Also a costco member here in the UK. It would be great if they come to NZ.

    I'm not a fan of costco. I'd rather keep shopping at the local stores that I've come to love here. It's part of the reason I love it here.

    I can agree with that, we only shop there if it is the last place, really don't like it though, which is Ironic because I work for a company that is thier second largest developer in the NW US, glad I don't work in that division though.

    How can you not like Costco? Good quality products and low prices. All the Costco staff I've met have always been friendly and helpful. Is it just the thought of a U.S. firm that bothers you? I don't think NZ is going to become a society like the U.S. just because of Costco. It takes many more years to get that screwed up.

    Just wondering!

    I'm not a huge fan of Costco either. Was never pleased with their selection and often found better deals elsewhere. It's ok for some things (they had pretty good meat prices and quality iirc, moot in NZ though) and if it does come to NZ I'll ignore it for the most part like I did in the US.

    No, it's the problem with big businesses putting smaller local ones out of business because they can't compete with the price.

    Plus in all the Costcos I have been in they were surly bordering on mean.

    Plus stores that big are just overwhelming to me.

    moore wilsons is about the closet thing to costco in the welly area. some items are the same that you will find at the other grocers, as far as size, but sometimes the prices are better. they do have many items that you can buy in large quantities like laundry soap, cleaning supplies, baking goods, frozen items, ect. i like moore wilsons for some items, but it is not quite the same as costco.
