Sam's Club

Sam's Club is a Walmart project, a warehouse store where you can, if you're careful, get some good deals. One of the problems is that many items are available only in bulk. Who needs toilet paper enough to equip an army? Not only so, but they charge you for the privilege of shopping there! Is that a great deal, or what?

These stores know. Here it is similar. For example, in shops, "Macro". Sometimes you can conveniently buy in events. When a discount on merchandise. So you can survive the crisis. Greetings to you and wish you a nice new week. / Peter

If you had a family with 10 kids, it'd be a great place to shop.

It sounds like the Costco model. I thought Costco was the greatest thing ever when it first came to Vancouver. I haven't been to one in years and have no intention of ever going again.

One of the things that bothers me about all of these warehouse stores is, 'what would happen if there was an earthquake?'

Thankfully, I have not been in one of these since June, 2006, right before we moved from Jackson, Mississippi, to Portland, Oregon. I love those curved shelves!

My sister-in-law loves Sam's Club. But she likes to shop.

I have never been a fan of Sam's. Like you say, not everything is a good deal and who needs so much stuff anyway? :)

I used to have one. I gave it to a good friend of mine when I left Austin but I got another one (different name I think) when I spent half a year in CT a few years ago. I could have bought a collection of DVDs of all Chaplin's films for about 50 dollars! I didn't because my suitcases were so full already :-)))

The size of the shopping trolley being pushed towards you, by the lady in the centre of the shot, is striking, it's the size of a small car. She is clearly on a mission!!
