I'm a Houston guy and for many years Sam's Club has had a stranglehold on the Houston discount wholesale market. There are probably about 25 Sam's clubs in the Houston metro market. There is 1 Costco at Blalock & I-10. After reading this thread, I went there yesterday and I joined Costco.
I was very impressed. The store is very similar to Sam's Clubs but with slightly better quality (meaning upper end) products. This may have to do with the specific location of this specific Costco.
They told me that they are opening up a 2nd Costco in the Houston area in the Greenway Plaza area (on the old HISD site), and it will be a super store.
They gave me a free rotisserie chicken for joining and I must say that it compared well to Sam's Clubs rotisserie chickens (with which I have vast experience)
As to the shoe trees, I didn't see them at this Houston store. But I'm hoping they have them at the new Greenway Plaza store. They look like a wonderful deal.
