    The Organics that I've bought at Costco are: Instant Flavored Oatmeal, and few packaged items in larger sizes that you might find at the Whole Foods or Wild Oats. Costco doesn't carry a lot of Organics and their shelf space is determined by what company is currently paying for space, for example: I use to buy Hansen's Natural Soda's there but they don't carry them anymore. Hope this helps.

    I recently bought organic pasta sauce at Costco, and they also had organic pasta as well as some other organic foods (I think I saw organic coffee, but I can&#39;t remember what else).

    We dont have our own membership. We go with my mother in law or she

    picks up what we need when she is there. Since we don't buy enough to

    justify having our own membership. I have seen some organic things,

    but it doesn't seem like very many.

    I am in the Denver area and Costco has little organic fresh produce. They do

    carry Organic milk and eggs.



    I would not get a membership just for organic.

    I am curious...I live in Washington state that has a large sales tax. Almost 9%. My boyfriend..(soon to be fiance/then husband after this..LOL) and I found a ring I really want at costco. He has saved up enough money and we figured it would also be several hundred just in sales tax. We have a gold costco card so we will get 2% back at the end of the year....but I figured we could go to Oregon and buy it at their costco since there is no sales tax. Now since we are using our costco card that says we live in Washington etc...are we going to have to pay the sales tax? I just want to make sure we wont have to pay it if we drive the 3 hours each way to the closest costco in Oregon(even with gas etc we will still save Hundreds$$). We will be paying cash but we still have record because of how costco has membership cards...

    Thank you,

    Tressa

    I believe you pay whatever sales tax of where you are - for instance, if I go to Florida on vacation and there is no sales tax, I go to Costco, I don't pay sales tax, but if I go to where you live I pay your sales tax - you don't pay sales tax on your home address, that would be a total mess all over the country if that were the case - seems each state has their own rules and regulations with their own tax

    Hi Tressa,

    I live in Pennsylvania and travel to Delaware to purchase alot of tax free items. No you don't have to pay sales tax, it goes by the state you purchase it in, not where you live.

    oh good...I wasnt sure on large purchase items. I know when people from Oregon come to washington if they show their ID they do not have to pay tax....and I know when i go to Oregon I dont pay tax but I dont normally buy large purchases like this. I know cars if you buy out of state you dont pay tax until you come home and try to liscence it..then you pay the tax anyways..

    Thank you for your help.

    <div style="font-family:times new roman, new york, times, serif;font-size:10pt;">You probably have to pay "use tax" if you keep it in your state. I know that I am probably the only one who pays "use tax" for things I buy on the internet (which is very few things), but not certain about Delaware and Pennsylvania. That's the way it is in Wisconsin anyway I have to pay "use tax" for anything I didn't pay sales tax on.

    you wouldn&#39;t have to pay sales tax on that. My dh works parttime for sears in Pdx and a lot of people from WA come down to his store to buy their appliances so they don&#39;t have to pay taxes. If they pay for it and take it home themselves they don&#39;t pay taxes but if they have the store deliver it then the store has to charge sales tax. T
