Two Costco-loving Kiwis have gotten a tattoo with the logo of Costco’s bulk-buy shop.
Jen Davenport, a woman from Auckland who helps to run Costco NZ Fans Facebook Page – was also the one that got this large Costco tattoo. Another superfan received the blue and red Costco tattoo.
“I enjoy shopping at the store, but I really appreciate their philosophy. Davenport stated that they do everything right and take care of customers, which I believe is very important.
“Tattoos can be very personal and this tattoo has a lot meaning because it represents the values of Costco.”
Facebook posted the image of the large tattoo to her inner forearm. It was quickly reacted with requests for the permanent logo-wearer a lifetime membership.
One of New Zealand’s few retail outlets where customers have to sign up for an annual membership in order shop.
It is 60 dollars regardless of where the card was bought.
Davenport claimed she was a frequent Costco shopper when she lived in Brisbane. She now lives in Waimauku, which is just a short drive from Costco NZ’s website.
Although she was already a member, she said that her tattoo didn’t require any extra treatment.
Davenport stated, “I just love to shop there. The staff are so welcoming and helpful.”
It is a beautiful site that I pass every day. The couple has done lots of native plantings and seem determined to make things work right.
Davenport claimed she ignored all negative remarks about her new art.
“It is mine to make the decision. “I don’t use makeup, and I don’t judge people who do. It’s my personal choice and mine.
Davenport claimed she was still “counting down” the days before the store opens. The date has been set for Wednesday September 28.
“I will be ready to go when the doors open.” She said, “I can’t wait.”
“We’ve been reducing our pantry and some of the products we usually buy are more expensive lately so I will wait to order them from Costco.”
Davenport isn’t the only one who has a tattooed tribute for this superstore.
Dan is a superfan of New Zealand who got the tattoo on his bicep.
The inked tribute to Costco NZ was also suggested by other Costco NZ fans. It looks fake, don’t you think? “Like someone used their textas,” another said.
However, a quick Internet search will show that Costco lovers are not the only ones going to such lengths to support the store.
Many people have Costco tattoos, as well as others that feature the Kirkland Signature logo.
Others superfans also held their birthdays at the food court and had photos taken in homewares. They even hosted Costco themed birthday parties for family members.
