I did not see that many affluent people there.
The Dollar Stoes hurt WALMART. The same way they killed MOM & Pop stores. Along with ALDIES,a German Grocery.

Whatever dumb argument is fitting at the time, they try to use. Nobody is buying this stupid bullshit.
You can't have companies and rich people pay no taxes, and then not point a finger at them when they outsource jobs. Why is this suddenly your issue\ when its been an issue for decades?
instead of learning a new skill, investing in education, science and new technologies (like Green technologies) that can create entire industry, the right opposed all this. Well, no shit you are suffering. Manufacturing will never come back to the levels it did, Coal and oil/gas jobs are not coming back. They are the past. We need to create new industries, become the world leaders in these industries, like we have done in the past, and that will create jobs.
And the very same people thumb their nose at service workers as not deserving of better pay, because it is unskilled. Well, nearly anyboody can work in a factory and it doesn't require lots of skill, so not sure why one job to you is worthy of better pay than others. People working should not need welfare and live in poverty and be starving
Costco Is Not For Everyone
Bargains are the big attraction at Costco, but the average transaction is often very steep, which is why the typical Costco shopper earns about $100,000 a year. Costco shoppers enjoy a bargain as much as anyone else, but they also have the means to buy in bulk, which, for many products, is the only way to buy them. Although the cost of shampoo at Costco is the lowest around, shoppers pay three times that amount because it is typically sold as a three-pack. Multiply that by any number of products shoppers add to their carts, and you can see why the average transaction is so high. It is also why most Costco shoppers are homeowners. It takes a lot of space to store bulk purchases. It so happens that, of the more than 700 Costco stores, the vast majority are located in suburban areas heavily populated with affluent homeowners.
