Why do people shop at places like Costco?
Have you ever been to a Costco? They sell a lot of things other than giant containers of food. It's great for things such as toilet paper and paper towels that never go bad. For those things, you might as well buy them in bulk because you save money that way. Also, a lot of the people who shop at Costco DO own restaurants or other businesses. Many people also go there when they're having a party or something and need a lot of food. And the electronics? They're cheaper at Costco than they are elsewhere, and Costco has a really great return policy. You can return anything at any time, no questions asked, even after it has been opened. Really, there's no reason that Costco should make you so angry. Not everyone is as wealthy as you are and can spend so much more time, energy, and money paying higher prices at the grocery store. If you're so rich that you can afford to spend more money to buy the same things, then by all means go ahead. But it's unfair to call people zombies just for trying to save a few bucks.

I shop there, but I don't do it for food. I do it for everyday stuff, like toilet paper, cat food, etc etc. Less trips to the store for me. They also, by selling en masse, lower their prices more than anyone else. I've been shopping there for over a year; my pocket book is thanking me for it. They wouldn't put a food court in the store if it wasn't being used. Most grocery stores have a deli counter to buy drinks and sandwiches; so do walmarts, kmarts, and targets. You seem very angry at a store that is just doing what it is supposed to; operate a business and make money while providing a service. Costco does that far better than say, Sams club, or BJ's.

Zombies are cool. And they need a lot of Cheetos! I mean, like a King Kamehameha size box of Cheetos. Where else are they gonna find one? And zombies have children, they're called emo kids, and they need their razor blades! Where else can they get a 50 pack of razors? If you don't like Costco, go somewhere else! Leave the zombies be.

Wow! What business is it of yours where people shop? What a lot of anger over something that doesn't affect you.

Costco is great! Why buy toilet paper for $8 for 12 rolls when you can get like 30 rolls for $8? Also, food wise it makes sense if you eat a lot of one thing (we buy yogurt in bulk). Or meat, we always stock up on meat because it's waaaaay cheaper at Costco than at the grocery store. It's more cost effective.

More stuff at a cheaper price..... and just cause its in bulk doesnt mean anything I shop there and I can get damn good prices on fruits and veggies in bulk and theres the toilet paper and shampoos and stuff like that, that come in handy in bulk so your not going to a target or walmart and spending money every week on something stupid when it comes in a big bottle and will last twice as long.

because food prices are always going up and in todays economy every penney counts,americans have learned to think that they need more in order to survive,most people today probly would not survive if they were poor and lived in the 1800's we have learned that more is better weather or not it is for real
