If you look at the bottles of Vodka you can buy there.... Right next to the Kirkland Signature (tall bottle red bottom )- there is Grey Goose for much higher price.....
They used to have the address of where it was made - 1 number off from Grey Goose...

Also the lower end vodka (etched bottle) for like $13 a bottle is sitting right next to Tito's....
For a Handle !! Same stuff....

Gotta watch out, if this makes a difference to you or not - but the Salmon was actually Steel Head, though they do offer salmon....

Either way - lots of great products for really good prices.


my head hurts now



Just tell me which vodka is the best for both price and taste please!

You want the vodka made in France (tall red bottle) if you're a high end vodka drinker. This is $20 for the 1.75L, and what most people believe (including myself) to be Grey Goose. For mixed drinks, the USA vodka makes most people happy and it's $6 cheaper or so.

I hate vodka, so my recommendations are purely based off my mother in law who only drinks Goose/Kettle/Absolute. She never buys anything non name brand, but reluctantly admitted Kirkland held up with the best of them after we gave a blind taste test.

If you are a Vodka drinker, the Kirkland signature (rumored to be Ketel One) is good....and price wise you can't beat it.
Is the Alpharetta location one that has liquor? I know the Sams in Alpharetta has liquor and I don't think you have to be a member to buy liquor there?

No, you don't have to be a member there or Costco to purchase alcohol. If,you're lucky enough to be in a state that sells it.

Costco in Sandy Springs - Peachtree Dunwoody Rd. has liquor. The location in Cumming had liiquor store built but was not open for awhile. Think I remember going by the location and seeing a coming soon sign.

I don't imagine that can't get you many flight hours.

Alpharetta and Sandy Springs (Perimeter) are the only two stores in Georgia that have attached Costco liquor stores. You do not need to be a member to shop in the liquor store.

The Cumming store has a liquor store attached to it, but it's not owned or operated by Costco. I have not been in there so I don't know how their pricing compares. I would suspect - however - that they are NOT selling the Kirkland branded products in that location.

They have incredible chicken and red pepper hot dogs. Around 100 calories each too. I'll take a pic and post them once I fly back home tonight.

Food and Household supply prices are great. For the electronics, I shop around first.

Any of you guys go to Restaurant Depot ? You need an EIN for a membership. No need to be a restaurant just any business EIN and the membership is FREE !

If you think COSTCO is amazing this place is unbelievable. Restaurant quality food and the choices are unlimited. All sorts of veggies, cheese, cleaning supplies, cooking pans, knives, vinegars, olive oils, cookies, tea, etc. You can get lost in this place. Watch out for the forklifts !

The Don Pablo coffee at Costco is my all-time favorite coffee. The olive oil and bacon is top-notch too. Meats are outstanding. Hot dog and a coke on the way out for $1.50. I love going to Costco.
