We had a blast at our Costco Mom Hour last month. Shopping before Costco opens with other moms, swag bags, giveaways, breakfast, and an exclusive membership deal…what could be better? Answer: nothing!
Costco opened their doors to BurlingtonVT Moms Blog readers one hour EARLY allowing us mamas to get a head start on our holiday shopping while hanging with other moms and enjoying some perks. This year’s event was bigger than last year and we were humbled. We had hundreds of moms and children join us for the event and dozens of moms take advantage of the Exclusive Membership Deal that Costco offered our readers.
The first 100 adults through the door received awesome swag bags chalk full of Kirkland Signature products and some of Costco’s other favorite products. We also put one of our BVTMB reusable shopping bags in each swag bag!
Costco promised everyone a yummy breakfast to enjoy while shopping and they did not disappoint. Once our team saw the numbers of mamas registering for the event we started getting nervous that there wouldn’t be enough food. Costco is Costco after all, so they provided MORE than enough food. Even with about 1,000 adults and kiddos being present there was still food left over at the end of the event!
Samples and Shopping
Anyone who shops at Costco loves the samples, are we right?! For our Mom Hour they provided some mama and kid favorites!
It was awesome walking around the warehouse and seeing so many moms talking, shopping, and enjoying themselves. Also, Costco kept all of their registers open and there was never more than a couple people waiting in any given line during the first hour of the event. That alone made the whole morning worth it!
In addition to shopping, mamas had the chance to be entered into a drawing to win one of FOUR giveaways: A $100 Costco Cash Card, a Gift Card to Gonzo’s sports, a $100 Gift Card to Spa Finder and 50 free holiday Cards. The drawing was done on facebook live a little after 10:30 am. Were you one of our three winners?!
A Huge Thank You!
This morning could not have happened without our local Costco team. Honestly, a second Costco Mom Hour would never have come to fruition without these amazing individuals, and we have so much gratitude to each and every single one of them. However, Melissa Bushey, Manager of Membership Services, was the amazing women behind the scenes who made the morning as flawless as it was. She worked on every detail with us.
