Agreed, papadage. The price savings on just a few trips pays for our membership. We currently go to the one in Clifton so I'm stoked about the Bayonne location. We don't have a whole lot of storage so this will make it easier to take more frequent trips. On a good day I'm in south Bayonne from DJC in 15 minutes when visiting fam. Two thumbs up!

Just be prepared to pay more money in car insurance. There has been an increased in accidents in Colorado. I spoke to my agent as to why rates are going up even you do not make a claim and he gave me the stats in JC.

Poll: 59% of New Jersey backs legal weed

The silent majority needs to not be silent on this issue and overpower the NIMBYs trying to stop this.

Membership is worth it for organic milk, meats, cheeses, paper goods, snacks like almonds and protein bars, a lot of produce like bagged salads, tomatoes, cucumbers and berries, yogurt, seafood.

It makes feeding a family of five (us, our kid, and my in-laws) very reasonable.


Thx

Exactly. How much do you have to buy/week at Costco to make it worth the membership fee?

I have no idea if there is an arbitration clause built into the bylaws. In answer to Brewster's question, we have kept a positive balance in our account solely through the good will of the members, who value their investment in the building. I suppose we are lucky to have had such responsible owners over the years.

Well, it got worse after the Skyway work started. It would take many millions to engineer that intersection with a flyover, probably taking room for clover leafs from the park. Look at the insanity going on at 14A for a good example. There's no reason getting from 78S to 440S needs to be such a shitshow, and that's how lots of folks will be getting to this store. And that's assuming the tpk isn't a parking lot, I always check traffic before taking it to Bayonne.

Here's some extreme traffic nerdgasm I just ran across. "Contraflow Left" at 5:40 seems the best solution for that intersection.

If taxes reach confiscatory levels, users will just buy via the black market. This has already happened with cigarettes.

It's too late for the pension plans. The time to fix it was 20+ years ago. Sweeney, to his credit, has been trying to get the state to fix the issue clear back in 2005. I think he even hinted at moving new state employees to a 401k type defined contribution plan. The unions took him to the woodshed over that proposal.

Actually many Democratic public employees said they voted for Christie to fix the pension problem. He did not, he did stop the cola increases and shed 8,000 jobs. Many jobs left NJ turning his turn so maybe that is why it was not fixed. But it is the reason why our rating is so poor, so financing bonds now cost more.

They need a bridge either over 440 or communipaw. JC should have that negioated and paid for as part of the skyway project

Why would Staten Islanders go there and pay $11 for the bridge rather than go to the Costco on Richmond Ave by the SI Mall? It is shocking there's no WM on SI, but they might as well head over the least busy bridge.


I guess they will kill two birds with one toll. I see private buses and jitneys with NY plates over at the Bayonne Walmart a lot. Who would have thought there would be shopping excursions to Bayonne NJ.

Re BJ's: it's a pale wannabe of Costco, so poorly run by comparison. I could go on and on why, but just look at the fact they couldn't make the concession stand work, and opened a DD right next to the one in ShopRite. The concession in Costco is always mobbed.

Reality check: it will be packed.

The Costco in Clifton; always packed - weekends don't go there.

WalFart in Bayonne = Packed.

BJ's in DTJC = empty

(Here’s the nj.com piece. I like to go to the Willow Brook Mall once and a while. You can hardly get into the actual mall because of the lines of traffic going to Costco and their gas station pumps. I don’t know how close a Costco is to the Bayonne Bridge in Staten Island if there isn’t one around they will be hitting the Bayonne one like they do the Walmart.)

Construction on Costco and 500-unit apartment complex now underway on MOTBY

“The warehouse store will include more than 700 parking spaces, as well as eight gas pumps, officials said. It is expected to open before Thanksgiving, Davis said.”

No one can get elected on a platform of "funding pension liabilities"., At least not yet, not till someone actually gets a short check. It's just not sexy nor meaningful to low info voters, just like no one gets elected for vowing to "maintain the infrastructure". "Free goodies" and shiny new stuff is so much better.

Some bean counter decided cheap rent and local financing by BCB (an incompetently run bank btw) compensated for terrible demographics. This store will never have an always packed parking lot like Teterboro.

Did u bother to read the article?

Yes. Did you?

The CBI and and Denver PD offer no theories. One police officer mistakenly says it's due to economic conditions (patently false, as crime rates did not soar in 2007-2009). One lawmaker who tries to pin it on pot also acknowledges a surge in opiate use.

Spare us the FUD, kthx.


The article points to crime increasing to outsiders coming to Colorado for the pot laws. They have increased crime in the state! And say what u want driving high is the same as driving drunk and when there is no accurate way to test than it should not be legal. Period. Its common sense.


in what world is driving high at all the same as driving drunk? how many high drivers plow into other cars and kill people? anyway, the information can be spun anyway you want to hear it, but the fact is, if weed (which people are going to smoke either way) was made legal, it reduces the drug sales from people who support cartels and the like and puts money into state taxes and local growers which sounds like an obvious choice to most logical people.
