Those who know me know my unhealthy obsession with Costco and this is my home store. They only stock top-quality products and offer them at great prices. Much of the food is in bulk (making it difficult to shop there if you're single) but there are also individual items like rack of lamb, crab legs by the pound, a great wine selection, etc... I shop there mostly for food and wine, though I occasionally pick up electronics or home goods. My wife hates the crowds that accumulate at certain times, but they don't bother me. Because Costco is just so awesome. There's a reason it was the only store left in Idiocracy.

I've been to the 'other' big warehouse company; Costco is very good at being sure to carry only items of very good to excellent quality; and, of course, the prices are as good as it gets in most cases. As a household of only 1.5, I'm not even able to take full advantage of many items (particularly grocery) since most items come in relative 'bulk' amounts, but I still buy what I can there. I also like to buy clothes, appliances, and smaller household items there because the return policy is very generous and customer friendly. I love going to Costco!

I ordered four tires from Costco. They never got the order right, after I called about four times. After four weeks, I gave up. I called to get them to credit my $40 deposit, which they couldn't do on the phone, so I had to go in and do it in person. Overall, I think they are good, but I didn't have a good experience.

Best Deal in town on tires at Costco. Knowledgeable, friendly staff offer great recommendations based on your needs. Check the Costco mailer before you go for tire coupons. It's still an incredible deal without the coupons!

I love the products and the prices at Costco, so I tend to over buy on occision. This is the best product selection and the best overall service of the Atlanta Costcos. Higher end products that are not usually associated with "warehouse" shopping makes it a fun adventure and the prices make it affordable.

Love it! I shop several times a month there and always find great deals on everything. Pretty high-end quality stuff, so definitely appeals to those with extra disposable income (Cartier watches, etc). This particular location is pretty crowded on weekends, so better to go during the week. Would recommend getting the Executive membership if you have a larger family since the the 2% you get back more than pays for the extra cost of the membership. Fabulous return policy (as others have commented on). Also, check-out the car/home insurance rates through Costco... the best rates I've ever found.
