Bought some mangoes in Jackson Height Queens.

Same brand is more then DOUBLE the price if you buy them Costco
"wholesale"!

How come?

I noticed other things that the wholesale price at Costco is more
expensive then retail stores.

Why? Because people can't add. Also because there is a sucker born every
minute.

You have to price check no matter where you shop. I buy certain things at
Costco, like some of my prescriptions are cheaper there by not using my
insurance and buying in quantities of 100. I also buy some OTC medications
like Ibuprofen. About the only food items I will buy at Costco are their
frozen salmon patties, chicken breasts, green beans, strawberries and
blueberries (all frozen). All the other food items come in too large of a
package and I can get the same price at Food-4-Less by buying a single item
at a time, instead of the banded together cans or bottles at Costco. I have
purchased several big ticket electronic items there, but now I will have to
get a fabulous deal to buy any big ticket item there because I found that
the American Express extended warranty is run by a bunch of morons and since
that is the only card they take, I will buy my big ticket electronics from
stores that will take VISA. The extended warranty from VISA is MUCH easier
to file and get paid for a claim.
