    A Google search would help.

    Costco is basically a “warehouse” type store where one buys items in bulk quantities (a greater quantity than for one or two people). The prices are usually very cheap for high-quality products, but there is a membership fee to shop there. The membership fee is how the company makes money in return for selling goods so cheap.

    Just finished transcribing this…deliberating on whether or not to torture myself by adapting it into Growtopia.

    But... Cost-Co is an industrial / bulk items warehouse. You can go to Cost-Co and order a 6-pack of couches. IKEA is all a-la-carte - you'd be lucky if pillows came in pairs!!!

    I suppose your right, though I'm still wondering who would order a 6-pack of couches lol

    my family shops at Costco basically 100% of the time when we need groceries. The quality of the groceries and frozen goods is quite exceptional, especially for the low prices.

    Costco is like a place that sells everything you would ever need in bulk for cheap. They have hotdogs and a soda for $1.5 (or maybe that's just in Canada)

    When you order a 6-pack of couches, you get to watch them drive the forklift. It's great!

    But Walmart and CostCo work differently. CostCo has two brands per item - Kirkland (their own) and one competing brand. With only two choices, you don't spend minutes deciding. They do this to speed up people's trips, trying to process everybody as fast as possible.

    WalMart will put whatever on their shelves. They don't buy products from brands - they pay WalMart for the shelf space, then get their money back once their items are sold. It's why you'll see the most popular name brands at eye level, or with an entire section to themselves. The brands pay a premium for this space!
