While most products at the warehouse club are in bulk, there isn’t as large a selection as you would find in the other food markets, but It’s an advantage as there isn’t 20 different brands of soda or an isle full of chips. Buying in bulk also cuts down on the frequency of shopping once you build up a supply of the basic ingredients for your kitchen, if you like to cook that is.
For items they don’t stock I suppose you could go a regular food store, but you could do it the web way. There’s, or peapod if they are in your area. Also doing a search you can find many other food providers on the web.
