The membership fee serves other purposes:1) It reduces theft. People who shoplift generally don't buy memberships to do it.2) It increases customer loyalty and allows Costco to target a specific customer.You may not like it as a customer and that is fine but you can't deny it is working for them.
Heck, Golf clubs have been doing this for decades on a smaller scale of course. Pay 125 dollars or so and get everything at 20% over cost. The more you buy the more you save, assuming you need those items.
OR YOU COULD GET AN EXECUTIVE MEMBERSHIP AND PROBABLY NEVER PAY FOR A MEMBERSHIP AGAIN .... What a bunch of dopehead bashers....
