Help Me Like Sam's Club
I am a big fan of Costco. I generally think it's superior to Sam's Club. However, I am planning on moving to a house which is about 5 minutes from a Sam's Club and 18 miles from the nearest Costco. As one can imagine, I don't expect to be going to Costco too often in the new house.
Help me to be happier about having Sam's Club as my only choice for a warehouse store. What are some things it's really strong in - perhaps even more so than Costco?
re: coney with everything
I second. Sam's club is operated by the same people as Walmart. Think thrice before entering their parking lot is all I can say.
Seriously though, you don't just go into this kinda warehouse stores and get a box of cereal and come out, do you? I probably enter Costco maybe once a month, probably once every two months, so it's not like a weekly grocery shopping place for me anyway. Maybe you have a big family to feed... I dont know. Are there anything else to do around Costco to make the trip even more worthwhile?
How about BJs?
Sam's doesn't come close in any department. Drive the 18 miles. It's what I do. I have a Sam's about three miles from my house and they never have the same thing twice. They might have one brand of TP on one visit and another a month later.
They do have a reasonably good meat and produce department, but I don't find that I'm saving the membership price on my purchases.
I have a Sam's Club membership and others in my family have a Costco. They are both relatively close to us. I like to be able to go to either because the selection varies and I do get tired of the same thing. I think you can go to Sam's and check it out and see if they have things that you would want to purchase. Pretty sure they give a guest pass, to go in and may have a surcharge w/guest pass for purchases.
