Paid a visit to the newish NTUC warehouse at Joo Koon.  Located right next to Joo Koon MRT station, an easy drive with ample parking.  Decided to visit because a friend told us that they had interesting things on sale, though we had to buy membership.  Ended up we bought membership - usually $35 for a year but because this was SG50, it is now $35 for 2 years, for NTUC members.

 

The place is indeed quite big and sells many interesting stuff in larger sizes, that you can't find at the normal NTUC outlets.  Ok, enough words.  Let my videos do the talking.

 

The place is big. 

 

If you like chips, you can get them here in big bags

 

For the stuff that are heavily marked down, like under huge discounts, be sure to check the expiry date.  They usually will expire quite soon. 

 

Since we bought membership, we are likely to go there again.  My wife wants to buy some chips for her friends.  They make cool party gifts.

NTUC warehouse just another big box. Not really practical if your family size is not big, cause most items there are in large size or quantity.

Need membership to buy is a sure to fail business model .  They just want to sound atas and exclusive that's all.  I will never pay a membership to buy things.

Like bank asking me to pay annual fee for credit card; as when I'm using, I'm already making money for them.

I ask them to keep their credit card.

Went once - only saw a few ang moh aunties buying to feed their section/platoon at home.

 

Really quiet and out of the way,  With petrol so expensive, I think only Jurong West residents would go, membership fees aside.

Membership fee may work it if offers substantial discount.

 

I remember walking into Sam's Club in USA.

Just looking at some painkiller and it's like 1/4 regular price.

That's the kind of discount that membership should bring.

I think at that time IMM didn't have a retail licence due to URA planning restrictions (not like now with Capita land being the new owner), so "membership" was a workaround.....ie loophole.
