Default Costco!

For Costco lovers, REJOICE❣️
Husband and I went to the Costco in Wesley Chapel today 2/21. Husband went to the men's room and the manager was there. Husband asked him about if there's any new update about Costco coming in Central Florida or Villages area. YES... Ocala!!
Construction supposed to begin the end of this year! 🤗 Don't know exactly where in Ocala though.
We've been members since 1986 and love shopping there and because they have some great return policies or warranty extensions.
Thought we would pass on this great news... saves driving time for sure.

And it starts again..... I swear I’m going to be the 1st in line to see what the obsession is if they build that store in Ocala.

We tried the one in STL years ago and it was meh 😕 at best.

Exactly. Having shopped at Costco for 12+ years, I don’t get the obsession. Sam’s does fine by me.

I still have memberships at BJ’s Wholesale Club, COSTCO & SAM’s because we still have homes in other parts of the country. I’m OK with ALL of each clubs offerings. Some things exclusive to COSTCO or BJ’s that I can’t get when in The Villages, I just have them shipped to me.

Welll.... Costco is addictive. I love their kefir, will travel for it, but only a reasonable distance. Ocala is still 45 minutes from my place.

Does anyone think there is a conspiracy among the Costco managers to mess with Villagers

Oooo. Good thought. Maybe they have all been told what to say if anyone asks. Now that would be hilarious.

Be still...my hoping/beating heart.


HOWEVER, I'll only believe it...when it's officially announced.



P.S. I LOVE COSTCO!

Kefir is fermented milk and a lot like yogurt but with more fat and healthier (and more taste as far as I’m concerned). It’s a common drink in Central Europe.

I overheard someone walking their dog ( the dog pooped on a lawn and they didn't pick it up) that Costco was coming.
I thought I'd try to cross-pollinate poop posts with Costco posts. Sort of a perfect storm...

I don’t know about that, on my street people seem to religiously walk around with a small poop bag.

Back to Costco. We live in hope.
