7 Best Kirkland Products Seniors Should Get at Costco

Many people see retirement as an opportunity to save money on day-to-day expenses. This could explain why Costco, a membership-only wholesale club based in the Seattle area, is so popular among retirees.

According to research, elderly buyers prefer the bargain warehouse club to rival big-box retailers like Walmart and Target. Furthermore, baby boomers, who number 76.4 million in the United States now, are more likely than millennials to renew their Costco memberships, which range from $60 to $120 each year.

As a baby boomer who frequents Costco, I’ve discovered that the warehouse club’s own Kirkland Signature brand of products offers some of the finest deals. Kirkland is found on one out of every five products on Costco’s shelves.

Many of these limited-edition things appeal to retirees and near-retirees. Oh, and don’t let the fact that you have an empty nest deter you from shopping in bulk. Check expiration dates, stock up on things that have a lengthy shelf life, and keep in mind that many foods may be frozen. Take a look at our list of 7 Kirkland items from Costco that are suitable for retirees.

  1. No Cosco near me-therefore shop BJ’s- any way of buying these and other Senior Cost Friendly Items, on- line/email, etc. ?, from COSCO ???

  2. I love Costco. As far as the Rotisserie chicken is concerned you didn’t mention that at only $4.99 per chicken at Costco, they are also larger plumper and more juicy than those sold at places like Cub foods and Walmart at much higher prices.

  3. I’ve been going to Costco since the first store opened in Kirkland. I’ve always found the quality of the products there to be excellent. I’ve also used many of the Kirkland products over the years and been very happy with them. I travel much farther now to get to our nearest Costco than when I lived in Kirkland and am happy to do so because I know I get great products and great value.

  4. I have always been satisfied with the products sold at Costco. My son, Ronald Allman has assured me that “all of the products sold at Costco are excellent.” So I shop with confidence at the Costco in Danvers, MA.

  5. No, my husband bought Costco’s hearing aids and they don’t do a thing. He’s had them adjusted and are still useless. Don’t waste your money.
    The toilet paper isn’t as good as others. Actually, pretty bad.
    The chicken is ok, my cats like it now and then.

  6. I wish there was a Costco closer to me I’d go there instead of Sam’s or Walmart, but I do go to Costco whenever I’m in the area.

  7. Because I am a senior living on a fixed income when I can get to store I stock up on as much as I can of what I can. Thank you.

  8. I have been unsuccessful in my attempts to order the toilet tissue on two occasions..actually, three times because once the computer would not allow me to finish the ordering transaction..Costco informed me that I would receive the credit for both .

  9. Costco has some great deals and some not so great deals! You have to shop wisely- and read all ingredients carefully!!! Shop around for electronics check against Amazon and Best Buy! –
