I second the Woodman's. Don't forget that they take no credit.

Debit, yes. Woodman's is the place. Few distinctions remain between east and west liquor selections, though west might have a slightly better singles beer selection

Woodman's West's liquor store is bigger than that of Woodman's East (though if you're not looking for anything too exotic, you'll find it at the east location anyway).

Woodman's is great, but I think Costco is cheaper. I haven't been to the one around here, but in MN the prices are about a buck cheaper. May not have as good of a selection and since you need a membership it may not be worth it.

Cool, I have a Sams Club membership, but I guess I'm happier dealing with Woodmans... Thanks!

We had a Costco card till we let it lapse because we weren't going out there often enough and there weren't enough things we wanted to buy in that much bulk.

Their liquor selection is definitely not as good as Woodman's. It's one or two aisles of great big bottles of some popular brands and REALLY great big bottles of brands I never saw before.

Good prices on Alaskan king crab, though. :-)
