6 thoughts at Costco

Inside Costco, Northlakes

The other day I went to Costco at Northlakes. A big American brand company here in Brissie? I had to check it out. These were my top 6 emotions whilst at Costco.

1. Shock

When I entered, I was in awe. Seriously, you know how Bunnings is big? Well, Costco was about 5 times bigger! At least! Everything was piled in bulk, sky-high! And super sized. I was stunned!

2. Excitement!

Did I just see what I thought I did? Stuff I like in bulk ?? These are so much cheaper than individual packets at the local stores!..- That Black Forest cake? Twice as big and half the price!  Time to buy a few things!

3.  Slight disappointment

Not much of a health food section. Organic cold pressed coconut oil (check!), some alternative flours, chia seeds and spirulina (check!)? Yep. Pretty much nothing else that I could find.

4. Joy?

Did I just see a Vitamix? Seriously?! They have everything in here, from food, to appliances, to warehouse tools and…I just saw a Vitamix. It’s a sign. Must put that on my shopping list for next time.

5. More joy??

I smell food! Hotdogs and choc-cherry sundaes for sale and the servings are HUGE! I hope I don’t tip this sundae that’s already starting to leak. It’s tough juggling a big box with a sundae in tow.

6. Satisfaction

Well… I think I’ll be back. It has been quiet an interesting shopping trip. Lots of lollies, food platters etc… pretty much anything you can imagine. A big tick! I’ll definitely be going back and seeing the Christmas stock soon. Why don’t you go and have a visit and tell me what you think? Slight warning though, you may need at least an hour. Getting lost will happen frequently or distractions may occur!

    Hi Larssa, nice review. Was it still packed when you went to Costco? I tried going a month after it opened, and it was way too packed so didn’t end up going in.

    Hello Kevin. I am very sorry for the late reply as I have only just realised there was a comment! Thankyou for reading. It is better to go to Costco on the weekday as it is very packed, let alone at Christmas time. I hope this helps:)
