15 Things Retirees Should Buy at Costco

September 20, 2021

From the Kiplinger website

You’ve earned every one of those gray hairs, American shoppers at or close to retirement. Aging baby boomers born between 1946 and 1964 — there are roughly 74 million of them alive today, still outpacing millennials — are seasoned shoppers. And boomers like to shop. In particular, they like to shop at Costco. More older shoppers prefer the warehouse club over popular retailers such as Walmart and Target, and boomers are more likely than millennials to renew their Costco memberships.

As a boomer and regular Costco shopper, I already knew this from personal experience, but recent research trips to my local warehouse club revealed even more deals aimed at the mature market that I hadn’t noticed before. Here are 15 things I found that uniquely appeal to retirees.
