Costco: The right choice in today’s economy?




Take note of this – “Costco Wholesale Corp (COST.O) said it plans to close its two Costco home stores on July 3, citing the current economic slowdown and resulting weakness in the home furnishings business.”

Now, I really like shopping at Costco but I am avoiding it these days because it’s filled with things I want but don’t need.

If you are like me, I never save any money at Costco because I always come home flooded with things I wanted but did not need and none of it was planned. Maybe they should try being a little more everyday and practical. Then I wouldn’t walk out of there broke.


It would be a great idea if they filled the store with stuff I don’t need or want. If they did, I am sure I would shop there more often. As it is, my wife forbids me to go any more often than once a month or two.
