Membership

Costco is a members only store. Membership is $55 per year or $110 for a premium “Executive” membership. Business membership permits six people to share the same membership.

Products

Costco sells a wide variety of high quality products and discount prices including groceries with many organic food options, large screen televisions, computers, cameras, and a wide array of home accessories. Pictured below is a portable solar panel system from ZampSolar.com that’s available in the local Costco store. Other solar products are available online.

Merchandising

Similar to Lowe’s or Menards, Costco places products on wooden shipping pallets and unfinished metal shelving. This significantly reduces the cost associated with merchandising. The floors are polished cement without any decoration.

Parking

Something unique about Costco in Coralville is that parking is available inside, making it very convenient when it’s raining or snowing. The annual cost of snow removal in Iowa is significant. So, the inside parking should save money and also reduce emissions from snow removal equipment. Click here or the image below for a larger view.
