Why Americans Need SUV’s October 9, 2006Posted by gordonwatts in Uncategorized.
It is because we shop at places like CostCo! Holy cow! Today was my first visit ever. It is a warehouse. And really really huge. You can’t see one end of the building from the other. And you can’t buy anything in a quantity smaller than 100: the idea being bulk is cheaper than individual item. You end up walking out of there with so many large boxes it is not possible to fit your loot in a small four door car with a kid to boot! Need to upgrade to a minivan! (I did not just say that!).
A few price comparisons: diapers 50% less than other places; Champaign one penny more expensive than Whole Foods for the good stuff.
