Screw that. All I wanted to do was get an overview of what it looked like compared to Sam's. I turned around and walked out.

    They are usually pretty strict and require you to show a card before entering the store, which Sam's doesn't do at all.

    I had read it's their way of drastically reducing shoplifting.

    Ironically, that's a tour that most likely would have ended with "and if there's something you want to buy, we'll waive the 5% upcharge if you still haven't decided to get a membership today". Costco's customer service is literally everything Sam's Club isn't.

    I've done the pharmacy thing, I wasn't assigned an escort. The funny thing is the first time I did it, I walked around just to get a feel for the place. Many people asked if they could help me. Told them upfront that I was browsing to see if I would like it while the pharmacy filled my order. Everyone responded with something along the lines of "You're going to love it, if there's anything I can help you with, my name is (Name goes here), just let me know".

    That is such a poor attitude to take they offered you a solution and you refused. Its a private club and they have reasons to not just let anyone in without being escorted. They have top notch customer service and its your loss.

    I attend a weekly class just a few miles from the Tulsa store. I actually drive by it. I was in there about 3 or 4 weeks ago to look around and they had no problems with me doing so. I also asked if I could buy something to eat at the snack bar and they said yes. I did get a slice of pizza. No issues. I do have a card and just need to renew it. I'll do that in about 2 weeks. I do plan on spending some time in there tomarrow looking around a bit.

    I never realized the volume of cars that COSTCO sells. Watch out northside car dealers.

    I would like to know why the membership is so much more expensive than Sam's? For my husband and I to have cards, it will be $120.00. Seems a lot of a year. Just saying...

    From https://www.costco.com/member-privil...onditions.html

    "Primary and Affiliate Members receive one free Household Card for anyone over the age of 18 and living at the same address. Household Cardholders will be asked to present proof that they live at the same address as either the Primary or Affiliate Member."

    The Household Card is separate from the Membership Card. One $60 fee gets both you and your husband a card, assuming you live at the same address and are over 18.

    Just purchased my Costco membership yesterday. I had one in Portland but let it expire. There’s one about 1/2 mile down the road from me now. It’s almost too close

    I was driving down 33 rd st in Edmond past the shopping center with Natural Grocer at Blvd. Costco had a tent out by the road hawking memberships. I stopped in since I had planned on renewing mine while in Tulsa tomarrow. They had some computer issues and sent me into the shopping center where they have a store front set up for membership sales and employment applications. Just want to give the heads up if no one already knew about this.

    Going to be way too tempting for people to gun it out of that north exit directly onto that Kilpatrick on-ramp...

    Right, especially because after that point you can no longer get on the turnpike at all. You have to go right and all the way to Santa Fe and then north or south a mile, then head towards Broadway Extension.

    And I don't think they can put a light at the Costco outlet onto the frontage road because it is too close to the light at Penn and traffic would back up through the intersection.

    What you can do is take the road to the south of Costco back west to Penn and go from there, but drivers will always try and take the shortest, fastest route.


    I realize that was as far west as they could put that outlet due to a massive drainage issue but I'm not sure how this is going to work.

    We have these in other areas too. The new 7-11 at Rockwell and an older one at Mem/Penn by the Best Buy. I think there are others too.

    The issue here is that there will be hundreds of people swarming all over Costco, and not just in the short term because this will likely be their only OKC location for quite some time.

    I remember how bad traffic was getting in and out of Costco lots in California where there are dozens of locations. People love that place. I also love it but I had to psyche myself up to go and deal with the crowds, especially because they don't have self checkout or much in the way of extended hours. So really no getting around the fact it's going to be a bit of an ordeal.

    For perspective, it was common to have 10 cars in line for every gas pump. I also remember having to leave because there were simply no parking spaces. And this was in an outlying area of L.A., not some densely populated area.

    There needs to be a left turn lane on southbound western. Like yesterday.
    Okc...make it happen. It literally would just take repainting. Not much other work needed

    Yes, I noticed there is not a left turn lane at the light that leads into the road behind Costco as you head south on Western and was pretty shocked.

    I just got one of those yesterday too. Not sure if I'm going to pull the trigger yet. It's further away from me than the Sam's on NW Expressway and then there's the Western Ave Traffic...
