makro seems to be in trouble too quite a few closed down of late whereas costco seem son the up.

Also i may be wrong as only been to makro, but in makro you have to add vat to prices shown, in cost co you pay what you see????

Costco prices are shown minus and including VAT. Costco is a high quality USA company. I think its fair to say that Costco doen't sell any rubbish and they have a fantastic returns policy (i.e don't like it, take it back - no qyestions asked and full refund). If you are buying many electrical items, you will also get a 3 or 5 year warranty free of charge. Jewellery / watches are top quality and excellent value. I like their cafe best tbh!

Costco do not have much choice whereas Makro gives you a wider choice of brands - to be honest if Tesco have deals on items like soappowder etc then it can work out cheaper to shop at Tesco for bulkier items

The way I understood it, is that makro is more for businesses (need to get a card through business) and costco is for anyone (can just get a card, but there is a fee)

No, the criteria for membership is pretty much the same for both. Business' and "professionals"
EDIT: looking at the makro website, they seem to ne business only.

They are both essentially wholesalers who sell in bulk.

Both show prices ex VAT but will have the inc VAT price on the shelf ticket.

Makro - you will need a business to get a membership card, but this is free. They may sell a wider range of goods, but they tend to be 'low rent' eg Beko TVs

Costco - do both trade and individual memberships, although you have to fulfill certain criteria to qualify for membership. the annual fee is around £20 + VAT for your card. They sell alot of bigger 'brand names' compared to Makro alongside their own brand Kirkland. You can generally pick up decent spec stuff here much cheaper than alot of places - eg Sony, Panasonic TVs

Costco's foodstuffs (meat, baking etc) are fantastic as is the cafe.

Baked potato and cheese £1.22 fantastic.

Costco is a lot better than Makro. Had both cards, kept the Costco one & do my shopping there monthly :)

Costco isnt strictly a wholesaler.

I enjoy shopping at Costco, but for some unknown reason I find going to the Leeds branch of Makro, sooo depressing, I can guarantee a shopping trip there will put me in a foul mood. There is no logical reason to it, it just happens.
