The best time of day to shop at Costco
Costco is the land of discounts and shockingly good food — but the abundance can be overwhelming. Fortunately, experts have advice on when you should visit the retailer.
There's no one day of the week that's best to shop, as the retailer marks down different products every day, according to a video by the Costco pros.
However, the window of 3 to 5 p.m. on a weekday is the best time to escape the crowds that mob the stores on weekends.
The wisdom of the afternoon visit is backed up by a Costco insider, reports Lifehacker. Jon Van Guilder, a Costco manager for 28 years, recommended visiting the store right after opening and before 11 a.m., weekdays between 2:30 and 5 p.m., and any night within 45 minutes of closing time.
