I Thought Everyone Likes Costco?


#1

Guess not…


#2

Chit!
You missed the neighborhood on Hamilton Avenue area (Campbell) bitching about In and Out coming to their turf, about 6+ months ago.


#3

Sure, everyone loves Costco. Just not in their back yard. Ya know?


#4

South Lake Tahoe rejected them … now all that sales tax money goes to. Carson City… smooth move Elax

I do not like Costco.

There I said it.

But if you had one open up on a major road nearby, I probably wouldn’t care.

I can see why people dislike In and Out burger–a LOT of traffic and sometimes backed up. The biggest problem is when they’re sharing a space with other retailers–like the In-and-out in Millbrae where the Panera bread is. Nightmare trying to park there because the In-and-out drive thru line is blocking a ton of spots which just go empty because not many people are insane enough to attempt to park in them. They have their place, but they need a lot of parking/space around them.

I bought my new desktop computer last Friday. It comes today, very fast shipping.

I love Costco.

If you are broke, easy to sneak in, as I did many times many years ago, and eat for free there. :grin::grin::grin:


#7

I don’t see why In-n-Out burger puts most of their units in a smaller shopping center without much parking so it disrupts the center so much. I used to think it was just a couple of units in San Jose but We have two in the San Diego area that are the same set up.


#8

They probably get cheaper rent, and they’ll be just as busy in the location with less overall traffic.


#9

Well, that goes without saying but I would argue that most Costcos are in industrial or business/commercial areas.


#10

I love Costco. If was homeless I would live there. Free food samples… sleep in the racks…


#11

Everyone here is being so dumb about it - we already voted to approve it and a small group of people are bitter and won’t let it go


#12

It’s a constant next door post discussion in Pleasanton


#13

Frankly, is it the folks who do live next to it or what??? Yes, there is an increase in traffic, but again usually it is in an industrial or commercial area.


#14

Livermore and Dublin has more land, why do they need another Costco in Pleasanton? Not a good idea to have another Costco when there is already one in Livermore.

Costco is not good to make a city high end. It drags the city down.


#15

What, there is nothing wrong with Costco…Way better than Walmarts or Targets…


#16

#17

beat you to it…:grin:


#18

Dude don’t you work!
Quit slacking like me. lol :grin:


#19

I have multiple monitors in front of me and it is lunch after all…
