If all the Mega Stores decided to impose a Membership fee how much would you pay for annual membership?

Costco already does it. Will similar stores follow such as BJs, Home Depot, Target, etc?

Anything to boost the economy!

  • I would not pay for it period. I only shop at them if I absolutely have no other choice.

    If people would stop shopping at big box stores and start shopping at their locally owned stores the job market would be in a much better place as would the economy.

  • If they did, we wouldn't buy into them. There are always alternatives, like locally owned shops....the internet, etc.

  • If they felt it would help their profit they would do it..... I don't seem them doing it... With the internet, I could order online. Groceries, I can get from smaller grocers, who may even see their sales boosted by people who didn't shop enough to warrant a membership fee.

  • If they did, I'd say "Buh-bye!" and go to a smaller retailer.

  • I wouldn't pay a dime to be able to shop at those stores but they would never do that unless it was a law because they know they would lose business when people stopped shopping there. LOL We pay $45 for our Sams membership I wouldn't pay that to shop at WalMart for sure.

    Ditto! Or order my stuff online. IMO, the quality of their products (Home Depot, Target, etc.), and the prices (i.e., not bulk prices like Costco or Sam's Club) would not make it worth my $$.

  • Bjs charge for membership too.

    Answering to your question I would pay $0 for membership.

  • I love costco! Come on who doesn't need 50lbs jar of mayo? :) LOL! Either way, I find that I do save money at costco on staples of the household then buying them at Walmart or the grocery store. I choose to pay the fee there because I want to, now if walmart charged a fee (which they do if you have a Sam's Club, which is the same thing as costco) I would not pay it at all.
