Thinking back, it is funny that I did some research into this company before first taking a membership! In retrospect, I cannot imagine a better investment than a Costco membership. Their products are good, prices are extremely competitive, pharmacy prescription service is the cheapest in the city. tire and automotive battery price and value cannot be beat, and their return policy is the best on the planet. Thank God for Costco. Beats the daylights out of Walmart, and such.
