What! Where? I did not see that. Is it in the Neihu Costco? I usually go to the Xi Zhi one but I think it's time for a drop by.

Also at Costco. Very cool, very cute red retro kitchen set down from 4880 to 2400 very , very nice and I must say our kitchen set is our familiy's best toy purchase EVER. I've been adding on to it for iorthdays and christmases for a whle and they are never bored with it.

Anyone willing to buy one and hold it for me for a few weeks until we are on the ground in Taipei? :D

We are definitely coming (gave up the lease on our current place)...just need to decide Tianmu or Xinyi.

You need the card to shop there or you have to go with someone who has the card.

Not Costco but I saw IKEA now has a wodden kitchen for sale. A little pricy at almost 5000nt as it's much smaller than the one Costco had but still cute.

Lately I've been avoiding Neihu Costco, as the crowds seem to have gotten worse, even during the week. Xizhi is generally better, especially during weekdays. Then suddenly even Neihu Costco looked bearable when I saw the news about China's first store:
https://www.bbc.com/news/business-49492326
US retailer Costco was forced to close early on its opening day in China, after the store was swamped with shoppers.

Buyers battled long queues and traffic chaos, before the Shanghai store was shut hours early due to "overcrowding".
...Some customers spent two hours lining up to pay for their purchases, while some had to wait three hours for parking, state news agency Xinhua reported.


Good heavens, what a nightmare! Don't they have any regulations on occupancy control for public safety?
