Murf, one of the local teachers here (and a fellow Canadian) was nice enough to show us how to get there. When we did arrive, the sight of the Costco logo on the side of the warehouse put a smile on my face (come on, everybody loves Costco)!
Inside, most of the products were tailored to the Korean market, but there were lots of products that I recognized from the Costco back home. The store layout was identical, but this store had two levels.

The memberships here in Korea are much cheaper than back home. Regular memberships cost 33000w whereas back home they are $55cdn+tax! So it's a savings of over $20cdn. My membership expires soon, so I will be renewing it here. What a deal! muhahahah! ;)
