Does Idaho love Costco? It seems that isn't even a question if you drive past any of the locations in our area on just about any day. Shoppers know that Costco offers quality items and discounted and 'wholesale' prices--and the major grocer seems to hold on to its cult following pretty aggressively.

Changes coming to your shopping experience have many online 'talking' and the reviews are a really mixed bag.

Not long ago--rumors were swirling that a NEW Costco could be opening in the Treasure Valley!

It seems that those rumors do have some truth to them and it's only a matter of time. 

With all of this demand in place by loyal Costco shoppers, it's clear that the grocery and wholesale giant has a pretty good hold on its base of 'followers' in Idaho.

Shopping anywhere isn't free--but it literally costs to be able to shop inside of your local Costco store.

The store's latest change? That cost is about to go up.

For the first time since 2017 (if you can believe it) the cost of membership to be able to SHOP at your local Costco is increasing.

Here's a look at what to expect from these increases:
