Costco North Lakes is an absolute Mecca for those of us looking to save a few bucks by buying in bulk. But what’s there to know about it?
Costco North Lakes
Before you go
Costco North Lakes, like any other Costco, is members only. You can head in to browse with a friend beforehand if you’re not a member but in order to actually make a purchase you MUST sign up.
Membership is $60 ($55 if you’re registering as a business). Yes, this seems steep, HOWEVER you’ll soon find that, if Costco stock the kinds of products your family uses, you’ll end up saving a LOT more. Find out what rael families said about whether or not Costco membership is worth it here.
In terms of parking, we’d recommend that you DO NOT reverse into your car park. When you go to load your car up at the end you’ll definitely see why!
It’s probably easier for parents if you don’t take little tiny kids with you if you can avoid it. It’s a big place and can be very overwhelming and once you’re in you’re kind of stuck there. Try to time your trip so you avoid the rush hour of weekends as well.
