This is a great, clean Costco; I haven't done much shopping here, so this review will be centered on my experience so far, which is with bananas, stamps, and the optometry department. So I don't know if yall know this, but Costco actually has an independent optometrist (Dr. Hollingsworth) in a little office that's right outside the store. It's to the right of the entrance. It's very convenient-they have appointments until 5 pm on weekdays and weekend appointments as well, plus you can order your glasses or contacts from Costco-super convenient! The bananas were delicious (I had to stock up-I ate 4 bananas for dinner that night since I was doing the Big D Climb the next day and my knees and ankles were killing me). Good value on the bananas! They sell Forever Stamps here, which was great since all I had was $.45 stamps at home and the price went up that next day. The optometry department is great, very good about looking up discounts that you may get with your insurance and also will take payment through FSA cards (maybe i'm dumb but I didn't realize mine was a debit card-so yay for convenience all over again). I ordered my glasses last Friday and was told it would be at least a week until they were in. I actually got the call yesterday (Wednesday) that they were ready. Pick up was a breeze as well.
I have never been disappointed by a Kroger. The employees at this Kroger are very friendly and helpful. The Kroger brand deli meat is great and they are willing to slice it up very thin for you too. They have a Kosher section within a whole aisle of special international "delights". They also have an organic section with a great selection. Great deals with the Kroger card and the cashiers NEVER forget to ask you if you have yours (plus, the more you use it, the more discounts you can get on your gas from Kroger stations AND Shell stations). They also are not discouraging over using coupons.
Nice to have a CostCo location in far north metroplex. New store that is clean with helpful staff. It's a big box store so you don't the same attention you might in a smaller store but then, you should expect that either. Been to many CostCos in town and this one ranks high from an overall location and service perspective.
