Most villagers are not going to buy in bulk so why would it be advantageous for them to build here? They want to go where there are families with lots of kids that makes it lucrative for them - excuse me can I have 2 bananas? LOL

IMO Costco is much better than Sam's. The wine selection, hard liquor the quality of meat and fish are superior. We belong to both but go to COSTCO monthly even though it is an hour away.

I cannot read your posts. The beige background with orange letters is difficult to see. Maybe it’s just me 🤷*♀️

I recently went to BJ's in Clermont. 40 min from Fenney, free 3 month membership. I was very happy with the selection and prices.

You must be using the "new design"...and I'm using the old, tried/true one.

On mine, I'm using dark orange letters on a green background and to me...it's the easiest I've found to read.

Of course...that's just my opinion.

When I'm forced to give up the old design and go to the new (unimproved, IMHO) version...I'll have to figure out something different.

Sorry for the hassle...as of now.

I was then told they would send that request to the regional manager. If a lot of Villagers would do this, we might get their attention.
I understand a 1000 signature petition was sent to costco’s corporate office. Still nothing was done. I think someone has to reach someone in corporate. Regional managers just ignore the requests.

Talking Costco.....

...not exactly a new subject.

And the poll says....



Costco/Sam's/BJ's Poll (Shop Here)


With almost 70% favoring Costco...it wasn't even close.

Default Costco

I have been, calling, emailing & posting on Costco FB page for one for the past 5 yrs. Nothing yet.

I initially began with WAWA 8 years ago & we now have 3 & 1 being built in Leesburg.

I then went for Target's for the past 8 years. A super Target's would be great on #301, got nowhere.

Then I went for Dollar Tree 5 years ago. I emailed & called them too & we got 1 here yeah.
I believe if they here enough on Social Media they will listen eventually.

I can believe that because I don’t think TV would let anything come to TV unless they get their cut. Summerfield would be a better choice because they would get Ocala business, & everything north of that & possibly take some of “Sams” business.

Who would you let open a business on your property without paying?

That is what we do. I have a running list for Costco and do an "inventory" before each trip. Has worked very well so far for us.

We used to have a Costco five minutes drive away from our home in NJ. Wahhhhhh.
