Sam's is confirmed to be building a second location in Lincoln, this time next to Walmart at 87th and Highway 2. That's good news for our family. We would love to buy in bulk, but by the time we make the trip across town to the current Sam's location on North 27th we haven't actually saved much money. There's a good chance we'll get a membership at the south location.
Costco is also set to come to the south side of town one of these days. Perhaps we'll wind up there instead. Some of our decision will come down to which of the two stores opens first (and how far behind the other one is).
Is there a reason, other than location and opening order, we should choose Sam's over Costco, or vice versa? I'm not well-versed in the world of bulk buys.
