Salt Lake City has several world class skiing resorts, has a brand new airport being built, but most importantly – has the world’s largest Costco. The Costco in Salt Lake City has an amazing 235,000 square feet of space. I decided to take you on a tour of some of the cool and unique things offered there because what else is there to do right now and when will ever have a chance to visit the world’s largest Costco?
The entire area was blocked off by an impressive row of shopping carts.
I lined up six feet apart from everyone else and waited for our turn to enter.
After about fifteen minutes, it was my turn to enter Costco.
I went to the very back of the store to start with in order to secure one of the hottest items of 2020, toilet paper. There were pallets and pallets of it. What a weird time to be alive with the giddiness that is seeing toilet paper.
The Gigantic Dairy room
This Costco has it’s own walk in Dairy room where they have all kinds of cheeses, buttermilk, milk, eggs, hard boiled eggs, and many other dairy items.
This Costco also carries full size roasting pigs, goats, and bone in lamb carcase.
Here is a box of whole dungeness crabs for $8 a pound.
Full size ducks are also available.
The Meat Room
There is an entire room of meat. I love to BBQ on my gigantic Traeger and there is an impressive selection of high quality, low cost meats. Try grabbing at least a 4 lb. Eye of the Round and make some amazing French Dip sandwiches. I personally like to cook it to 145 degrees with some au jus and provolone on buns.
There is a full size bakery section with muffins that come individually wrapped.
Like normal Costcos, there is a section for clothing.
Rows of Frozen Items
There are rows and rows of frozen items.
After spending about an hour in there, I ended up with raspberries, curry sauce, bar towels, honey walnut shrimp, toilet paper, two things of pepperoni pizza, peanut M&Ms and a carrot cake. It was quite the random assortment of items.
The checkout process
There was no one in line at the numerous checkout areas. I stayed behind the Costco glass and used the tap to pay with my Costco Visa card.
Thank you for reading my trip report to the World’s Largest Costco in Salt Lake City, Utah. I hope the next time you visit our great state, you’ll take some time to come visit and buy some BBQ meat, a duck, or a twenty pound bag of cheese.
