I agree with desertdave. Costco rules. I would have said that even before I became a shareholder.In my case, we have a Costco about 10 minutes away. Less if I make the lights. But when we do road trips, we often plan our fuel stops around Costco locations. Before I got my EV, Costco gas already saved us enough money to pay for the membership. With my EV, it's not so dramatic now. But my two rebate checks more than pay for the executive membership (usually 2-3x).Walmart? Almost never go in there. Their stuff isn't nearly as good as Costco. Same for Target (not as good).I also occasionally read about locales that are screaming for Costcos. Meanwhile, people protest when a Walmart is going to move in.Every so often some writer opines about Costco valuation. But Costco keeps delivering results for the shareholders, so I mostly dismiss those writers. If Costco stops delivering results, I'll revisit my investment. It's not a Saul stock, but it's a consistent juggernaut, and one of my best stocks over time.
