    They have recently built and opened and huge parking garage that will alleviate some of the horrendous parking issues that people have complained about in the past.

    Try to come here, or any other costco, on a weekend to get free samples of some of their food and drinks; it's a great way to have a little snack while shopping esp if you have children.

    It's the perfect example of D.C. people, all A-type personalities who are so self centered they don't notice anyone else around them, this city needs a dose of common courtesy.

    If you go there when you're hungry, you will enjoy the food samples...meatballs, sausages, bread with hummus, etc.

    This Costco is so crowded! If it wasn't for the tire center, I would never put up with the throngs of rude, cheap shoppers cutting me off every 2 steps 2 eat enough samples 2 take the place of a meal!

    Parking can be a bear. I recommend getting there before they open. Then you can get in and out quickly.

    You do NOT need to be a Costco member to use the pharmacy nor do you need to wait in the main shopping line to check out, but the hours are more restrictive than the store as a whole.

    Don't sleep on the variety pack. These brews rival the big names and are just awesome.

    I did a fun experiment when I was here, I used my Minnesota nice and said excuse me or sorry when I bumped into someone or was in their way, the look of shock on all their faces was priceless

    This place is always very busy on weekends, Fern Street gets to be a jammed mess, and you often have to circle for a parking space. Avoid weekends.

    If you are feeling drowsy, go chill out in he oversized veggie refrigerator. It will wake you up.

    Acting like a heartless POS is the best way to blend in amongst your fellow customers/food court staff.

    Got my cart (and 3 favorite canvas shopping bags) stolen here. Don't leave your cart unattended on a Sunday afternoon.

    Make sure you get something to eat at the Costco food court before you shop... if you don't you will end up spending more money on food than you would want to because you'll be hungry

    if you lose your parking ticket go to the manager and will give you a sticker for three dollars so you don't have to pay the $20 lost ticket fee

    If you're a young intern, take a suitcase, buy stuff, ride the metro back. They'll think you're going to the airport.

    Keep your parking ticket with you. Validate it as soon as you leave Costco with your receipt.

    No shoppers understand that shopping cart "lanes" (like the 2 main ones on each side of the big center aisle) should be 2 ways.

    There are never free carts near the entrance, so don't forget to grab an empty one from one of the stalls in the parking lot on your way in.

    The best way to get a parking spot is to follow someone on their way out. If only it didn't feel so creepy!
