Do you know there is an 80,000 sqft, two-storey Costco-style warehouse in Singapore where you can bulk buy items at the cheapest prices?
It is located right next to Joo Koon MRT station at the west side of Singapore, they have everything you need and they even make sure to minimize the process of paying by using Self-payment checkout solutions with a touch screen pos system.
We all know the basics of economics – the more you buy, the cheaper you can get the items you want at wholesale prices. That’s the principle behind this awesome Warehouse Club in Singapore – “Think Big, Save Big”.
Shopping is in a no frills environment. Stepping into the warehouse, you will be absolutely overwhelmed by the high ceiling and rows after rows of groceries, some in giant sizes not available at your regular supermarkets; while others are packed and sold in bulk. Certain items are also available in individual pieces, like those from Kirkland signature, an exclusive America brand found only in Singapore at the Warehouse Club.
The Warehouse Club has been opened for two years now, but it is somewhat of a secret among those who know about it. Go tell your parents about it, and the ones who do the grocery shopping at home, so they can spread the words along. Christmas and New Year are just round the corner and the Warehouse Club is a good place to stock up on all the festive groceries, saving big time!
We did just that for our year-end company Christmas party for AM Collective, the parent company for Alvinology.com, stocking up on all the festive snacks we need:
There’s giant-sized potato chips, premium beer in 6-packs, and all the stuff we need for our party. Best of all, we saved quite a fair bit with the lower prices.
What’s the catch?
Nothing much. First, if you are the type who needs to shop in a fancy environment, the Warehouse Club is not for you due to the no frills concept. If you are like us and prefer low costs above all else, this is the place to be.
The only catch is that there is a membership fee to shop at the Warehouse Club. The two years membership price just costs S$50 or S$35 if you are a NTUC affiliated Union member, FairPrice members and shareholders. A mighty good deal considering all the savings you can accumulate by doing all your grocery shopping at the Warehouse Club.
If you are worried about lugging your massive shopping loot back home, especially if you do not own a car, fret not, for there is free delivery to your home for purchases above S$500. Perfect for the massive festive shopping for the year-end.
If you do drive, then you will be happy to know that parking is free for the first two hours for members. There is a wide array of benefits for members, ranging from exclusive discounts to rebates. More details – http://www.warehouseclub.com.sg/wps/portal/whc/Membership
What are some exclusive items to expect at the Warehouse Club?
You know those American super-sized items you see on television that they get in Costco? Expect lots of those. For instance, large size Campbell’s Soup, Canned Hosen Mushrooms, Lay’s and Ruffles chips are just among the many other items you can get your hands on.
There are also some exclusive brands and items only available at the Warehouse Club and nowhere else in regular supermarkets in Singapore. This includes soft drinks like Arizona, Canada Dry and America F&B brand, Kirkland Signature.
For those who prefer with finer taste buds, there is a wide selection of gourmet produce as well as and even an extensive selection of wines! Perfect for those year-end festive parties you are hosting!
Don’t limit your grocery shopping at Warehouse Club to just their unique range of food and drinks, there are other household products available too – ranging from toiletries, clothes to even toys!
