having not shopped at Costco since the late 90's ,so I can not compare it to BJ's but comparing to Sam's on 441 I still think BJ's is the better of the 2 clubs, I wish BJ's would come into this part of Fl. and save me the trip to Clermont Fl. Waiting for something To happen to change my mind, Sam's doesn't offer a discount for buying gas at the club where BJ's gives Nickel off per gallon for membership and a dime off for using their credit card plus all kinds of gas discounts for buying different products during the months

Can't wait to dump the local Sam's Club, which is the worst one I have ever visited.

I guess I'm in the minority of folks who consider shopping a burdensome nuisance rather than a joyous celebratory event.

I get why Costco lovers are waiting, I don’t get why the bashing of how much crap do you need. Unless you are funding my shopping experience I can and will spend my money at certain businesses.
If you don’t like them don’t shop there, insulating our intelligence is childish

I of course am happy for those who live in the northern part of The Villages, as if this is true will be helpful for them. With The Villages expanding more south, I guess I was hoping more towards the Rt 44 or Rt 48, Rt 301 area......

I could be totally wrong, but for me at least Ocala seems much farther away then the Orlando, Clermont, Groveland area....where The Villages is heading to and where it is already booming by leaps and bounds.

Oh Well. life is good and we of course are still very blessed even without a closer Costco.

Frank, get on the turnpike westbound off 301 and you will be in Ocala in 20 minutes. But the better Costco is Wesley Chapel. South on I-75 to exit #275 (Land O' Lakes), turn right from ramp and left at second light. Much larger Costco, no tolls, a whole lot less crowded. Just be ready to race. If you're going less than 80 you should be in the slow lane.

It's like liquid pourable yogurt. It comes in full fat, non fat, and flavors. Good over fruit. Publix and Winn-Dixie have it.


I add the unflavored to Crosby's breakfast and dinner as a probiotic.


Oh, and PS: the dark chocolate malted milk balls in Fresh Market are not mostly chocolate. Good ratio of chocolate to malted milk ball! Yum.

But for now, we do have a Sam's Club in The Villages.

We go to the Costco in Lutz, we too hear they were looking for a building site in Ocala, lady said we hear all The Villagers wanting a closer location. I previously posted this info. Probably near a freeway for the exposure. Sure hope the original post is true and a site has been found and negotiated. Quality products.

I wish it is true. We belonged to Costco and Sam's. Sam's membership expired last we week and we are not renewing. When we need products will go to the Costco in Orlando.

Great news! Costco is opening a new store next month at the Perth Airport in Australia. Only 11,477 miles from The Villages.
