COSTCO

Whenever I go to Costco for what looks like a small list of shopping items, I always arrive at the cashier with a full cart, and there’s just myself and my wife! I have enough mayonnaise and peanut butter to last the next 2 years!

Their model is brilliant. As we all know, they sell in volume, so the bills are higher, and on top of that we pay them a yearly membership!

I am not complaining, as I go there regularly for specific items. I am simply acknowledging the brilliance of their business model.

I was recently in Florida and we did the same thing; once a month, we went to Costco.

I also love that we all line up to save what amounts to probably $5.00 worth of gas. “Oh, look! They are 10 cents cheaper per litre or gallon! Hurry!” I once sat in the lineup for 25 min, the whole time I was thinking, “I could have sold a digital marketing campaign to someone and helped them expand their business in this time frame.” Yet, I was quite content to sit there in a huge lineup to save $5.00 whole dollars. This is Costco on the brain. They’ve done their job!

We’ve bought a TV, organic food, keto products, meat, cheese, clothing, propane for our BBQ, gas for our cars, and more! It’s wild! A friend who does not have a Costco card asks me periodically, “When are you going to Costco?” Costco on the brain is contagious!

Oh, and prior to exiting, after we’ve spent hundreds on what seems like a few items to me, we stop and get bloated with some hot dogs, fries, a slice of pizza, and a drink. If Costco had foot massages prior to exiting, we probably would buy that service too!
