I love, love, love the Costco store in Brookhaven! I like the layout of the store and the customer service is amazing! The employees are genuinely friendly and happy to be there. I usually can find everything I need. When I can't, there is a computer station near the checkouts I go to. They will check and tell me when a particular item is due back in their store. That is a huge help! As far as Kirkland products are concerned, I find them to be at least as good, but often better, than the "name" brands -- and usually cheaper. I have never been disappointed in a Kirkland product. If you have a chance, take a look at the Costco documentary, "The Costco Craze: Inside the Warehouse Giant." You can watch it on You Tube or online through Amazon or Netflix. I watched it when I was hesitating to renew my membership (I am a single person) and, based on what I saw and learned, I renewed. Very informative! I do wish the Brookhaven Costco had a self-checkout line -- like the Peachtree-Dunwoody Costco does -- for customers with few items. But, as far as I am concerned shopping at Brookhaven Costco is a 5-star experience!
We love that they support the community. They sponsored the annual Candler Park Easter Egg Hunt. My son and his 6-year-old classmate have their afterschool Friday "date" every week. The sandwiches are exceptional. The prices on bread from Holeman and Finch are so competitive, why would you even bother going anywhere else? Comparison: Baguettes $2.49 at CPM (from H&F bakery) and nice walk, the YDFM is $2.99, bigger but you have to get in car. Also you can pick up local resident, Kate Carter's Treehouse Milk. The cashew milk is a winner! Sit at the counter and watch a Turner Classic black and white on mute. You and fellow counter mates fill in the dialogue.
i liked the 'no minimun order part' and i wasn't expecting any real deals (and there wasn't any deal). i called in the morning around 10 and stopped by while i was out a little after 12. The order was almost ready and i really didn't mind waiting. what i ddn't neeed was the hard time i got for 'not waiting until i was called'. i'll be sure not to come before my order is ready next time. it'll be easy since i won't be placing another order. I just feel bad for the guy in the back cutting the stuff. this would be a good place to go if you're in a pinch but i'm not likely to make them a regular supplier.
