Manhattan bulks up, Costco style
Need 64 ounces of soy sauce ($4.89), 128 ounces of Hellmann’s mayonnaise ($10.59) or 80 ounces of Hidden Valley Ranch ($8.89)?
But starting today, if you’re ever in a pinch and want three pounds of almonds ($9.69), five liters of olive oil ($19.99) or 192 ounces of organic milk ($8.99), there’s a one-stop shop a short subway ride uptown, just waiting to fulfill your bulk-buy needs.
The first Manhattan Costco, located on 116th Street off the FDR, throws open its doors to shoppers at 8 a.m. today.
Featuring more than 105,000 square feet of selling floor, a selection of more than 3,500 different products, a massive fresh-food department, a pharmacy, a doctor-staffed optical department, a hearing aid area, a photo center and a food court, it’s the embodiment of all our big-box suburban shopping fantasies.
