Hello everybody and welcome back to the Costco Weekend Update!

I’m glad you all enjoyed the Costco book hunt post from a few days ago, hopefully you got some Christmas ideas for your lists?

I mean now we can go full-bore Christmas Crazy right???

 

I know Jan in Waterdown isn’t a fan of hearing the Christmas music in the store yet, but come on, time to ring in the season am I right?!?!

I’ve already begun my Christmas shopping, gotta get a head start on that this year… I hate scrambling at the last minute, I’d much rather get it done and then just kind of stroll through the crowds later on knowing I’m set.

One early Christmas gift I got was this hilarious little toy.

Tabby Taco cat toy

Yes it’s a cat toy named Tabby Taco… Whats not to love about this?

Exactly. I will not be waiting to give this to the cats though, they will get this today with fresh cat grass & catnip.

I mean we gotta treat ourselves sometimes right?

Maybe you should treat yourself to this awesome Double Bubble Gumball machine?

Why not?!

The Yamaha “Viper” snow sled would be a pretty awesome gift!

I think we had something similar when we were kids but it was the Noma GT snow racer, and it was awesome! I have a vague recollection of some pretty awesome wipe-outs on that thing.

Another new TV hit the shelves today, and while I don’t normally notice new TV’s too often Samsung’s “The Frame” TV looked pretty sweet.

Samsung 55" The Frame

As you can see (hopefully?) it sits pretty well flush with the wall, it comes with magnetic edges that you can change out easily (so it says) and when it’s not in use it can display art from the Samsung gallery, or your own pictures. Another cool feature is the separate connection box that houses all the plugs you need, that is what allows the TV to be flush to the wall. Super cool!

Here’s a look at a few other sales this weekend.

Aveeno Skin bodywash 3 x 532ml -$4.50 @ $13.49

Dawn Advanced power liquid dish detergent 3 x 828 ml -$2.50 @ $8.99

Janes Chicken Strips 2 kg -$3.00 @ $10.99

Roots Crew socks 6pk mens sizes 6 – 12 -$4.00 @ $9.99

Hamlet Crispy Chocolate thins 4 x 135g -$2.00 @ $7.99

JBL charge essential bluetooth speaker -$10.00 @ $149.99

Just a taste, the goods are below as you’re aware.

How has everyone’s Costco experiences been lately? Just curious how you’re all finding the warehouses now that capacity limits have been lifted.

I’d say in general the warehouse I’m at is pretty good, but I feel like today everyone forgot how to drive their shopping carts… I just don’t get it sometimes… Who walks down the middle of the aisle with their shopping partner and takes up the entire aisle? Or stands at the book section with 2 carts and doesn’t look around to see if anyone is trying to get by?? Or backs up without looking behind them??? I think we should institute Costco shopping cart drivers licenses & reverse beepers on regular shopping carts, what do you think?

Why don’t you all share some of your experiences with the rest of us as well, I’d love to hear your Costco stories! I mean, I torture you with my Costco stories several times a week, so… A little payback?

Anyhow before I open up any more cans of worms I’m going to get outta here!

Have a great night folks, enjoy the sales and I’ll be seeing you soon!

  1. Your comments about people not knowing how to drive a Costco shopping cart resonates with me as well. And then there is the subject of social distancing. If I am trying to reach for an item it ain’t exactly fun to have someone reaching over me and practically breathing down my neck in order to get “their” item. Practicing good manners and civility when in public has never been more important and I find it discouraging to witness this kind of behaviour over and over again.
    Has COVID made things worse or am I just noticing it more?

    • Hey Janet, I too hate that. I’ve said to that person “Oh! If you had said something, I’d have been happy to move for you!” (Instead of saying “wtf?” which is what I REALLY want to say 😝) And their reply? “Oh, it’s ok!” Then I say as calmly as possible “No. No it’s not.” They usually get my point. Uch. I think Covid has just heightened our awareness of everyday intrusions into our personal space.

    • I have the same experiences almost every time I go in. Social distancing is a “by choice” action apparently, as I think most people seem to think COVID is over now. Maybe COVID has made some of us more aware of other peoples actions???

  2. Hmmm guess I sound like a real Scrooge eh? 🤔
    I can live with that! Lol 😆
    And I will volunteer to be the Costco Cart Cop.
    People are nuts sometimes!!!
    Cheers & thanks, Jan

  3. Thanks very much for the weekend update, I have added several things to my list.

    So, you would like to hear about our Costco experiences lately well,,,,, first allow me to say that I am a HUGE costco fan and have been for many years, never any problems. For a while now, I have had problems at the checkout line. The cashier helpers were great at helping you offload your order as well as pack it back up in your cart, in the past. This was very much appreciated because I am not in the best health. I do put a large square hard sided cooler bag in the cart to hold the perishables. Also, I have a super sized Ikea bag that is very wide open.
    I understand the “we won’t touch your bags because of covid” protocol but I think some are taking advantage of this. First of all, my bags are so large that you would not be touching them. Second, there are other areas on the cart with no bags that they could help place some of the items such as the child seat area and underneath.
    All some of them are doing is standing there chatting with the cashier and occasionally moving items down to the bottom of the belt. They are wearing gloves and have just touched hundreds of other items that many customers have handled a few minutes ago.
    If (some of them) won’t help customers off load then load their carts, then what exactly is there job?

    I did mention this to a manager one time when I was particularly exhausted after struggling with a large order. He was apologetic and said that he would speak to them. That cashier also double charged me for three different items!!!

    Similar situation last time at Costco but I didn’t check the receipt prior to leaving. Got home and found that I was double charged again. Now, I have to go and wait in that long line up for a price adjustment and hope that they believe me.

    WARNING: Double check your receipts at the checkout counter prior to leaving the store to ensure they haven’t double charged you for items.

    At my brothers Costco, he says that they have always placed their items in their hard plastic grocery bins, no problems at all.

    Sorry for the long rant but I have been really annoyed about this. My customer experience was NOT good!! Please feel free to share you honest opinions with me. Thanks very much!

    • Hey Layla, I feel your pain! Just a suggestion for you in future…. if there’s a mistake on my bill (and after doing a stint in retail, I never leave a store before checking it), I go directly to customer service to get it corrected. I don’t stand in the return line when it’s not my error.
      I also put a written statement in the comment box once about a particularly unhelpful and unpleasant cashier, suggesting she might be better suited to another job in the warehouse. Usually I try to notice the good and ignore the bad but this situation had repeated itself over a number of occasions. And it seemed to work, unless I’ve just managed to time it right. The vast majority of employees are lovely!
      Cheers and good luck, Jan

      • Thanks Jan, I will definitely be checking my bill thoroughly prior to leaving from now on.

        I was really hoping to get feedback from people regarding the cashier’s assistant helping to off load then load our carts. (Please be aware that I am doing most of it, would just like a little assistance with a large order). What do most of you do? Do you have any bags, or containers in your cart to make for easier and quicker loading into your car?

        If I had to individually load each and every item from my cart into my car it would take forever. As you know, there is always some person anxiously waiting for your parking spot.

        Thanks very much for allowing me to vent and please, chime in with your opinions 🙂

        • Update: Hello folks, perhaps no one will see this but I wanted to give an update.
          I have just returned home from Costco and had a MUCH better experience!

          The Manager was directing customers to different cashier stations and I
          asked
          her to please send me to a checkout with a helper. She looked and directed
          me to a certain line. Well, the cashier and helper were outstanding!!! Very
          pleasant and helped me off load then load my cart back up again. I was
          ever so grateful!!! I certainly expressed that to them and even called the
          manager over to express my gratitude and satisfaction.
          They were VERY appreciative of the recognition of a job well done.

          Bottom line, it all depends on who you are dealing with, every situation
          can be so different. If you need help, ask for it and see what happens.

          Thank you for listening to my rather long rant. I would be happy to hear
          from anyone who has experienced a similar situation.

          • Hi Layla, I’m sooo happy to hear you had a good experience today! It’s nice to leave the warehouse with such a positive feeling, especially when you are such an upbeat person! It comes across in the way you post your comments 😊👍
            Cheers to you! Jan

    • Hi Layla,

      Sorry to hear you’re having issues with loading things into your cart. I don’t think they have the same rules at all stores because at the one I shop at most often in Barrhaven (Ottawa), they’re loading things for customers again. I usually prefer to do my own so I can put like with like but when I was last in about 2 weeks ago, I just put my shopping bags in my cart and the person helping at the cash bagged things for me.

      Maybe you can check with the management at your store to see if they’re still required to be hands-off? Sure doesn’t seem like it where I am.

  4. Love and look forward to your posts. I’m 5 1/2 hrs from the closest Costco but still look at your deals in case someone is going. By the way, have you seen any wired Christmas ribbon? TIA

    • Hi Marlene, that’s a long haul to get to Costco!
      I have seen the ribbon at Costco, yes. My warehouse at least is pretty well fully stocked with Christmas goods now.

  5. How I wish I had a story to share from a warehouse visit! Being in little PEI, currently aren’t supposed to go to NB to shop. I do get my fix on line, but not quite the same. I enjoy my “runaway” days to Moncton, hopefully soon!

  6. You Leave your Manners at Home when you shop Costco my Favorite Store.😬What I Hate is when people angle their carts in the aisle, block all Traffic from moving. Never on Sunday.

  7. I tend to go an hour before closing, I usually avoid all those cart loons!! I have anxiety around large crowds, so it’s been easier to go then. Plus it’s really helped not having samples!

    I do my birthday and Christmas shopping all year long, helps financially, avoids crowds and better selections!

    Disappointed there are no Ewok or Dexter pictures this post, would love to have some action shots of this arm scratching! Also, where did you get tabby taco?

    • Sorry Jennifer, I’ll make sure I get Dexter and Ewok into the next one for you! (I picked that up from Ren’s Pets in the west end)
      I agree with you, over the years I’ve started my shopping earlier and earlier to avoid the stress of line-ups and crowds… Way better!

  8. It drives me crazy that I can’t bring my bags into Costco. The other grocery stores are allowing it. Even if the employees don’t want to touch my bags, at least let me take the items off the belt and pack them myself. The employees at the cash are touching hundreds of items that have already been touched by numerous people, including myself when I took the items off the shelf, so I don’t think my bags are any “germier” than those items. I greatly dislike packing my groceries outside when it is raining or snowing.

    • My sentiments exactly Jennifer !!!!! They have already been touching hundreds of items that have been previously touched by customers.

      I am 100% for protocol that keeps people safe but this situation just doesn’t make sense!!!!!
