There were scenes of chaos at the Trafford Park Costco warehouse on Sunday afternoon (September 17) with huge queues for the tills and in the car park.
One shopper described it as being like 'Christmas Eve an hour before the shops close' and admitted they turned around and left without buying anything due to the long wait times.
The Manchester Evening News has previously reported on long queues of cars at the Costco petrol station, with membership card holders eager to fill up with cheaper fuel.

One shopper, George Icke who had visited the Costco store in Trafford with friends at around 2pm on Sunday said the car park was 'rammed' and that, after waiting 20 minutes for a space, they had decided to leave.
"I've never seen it so bad," he added. "It was like Christmas Eve an hour before the shops close. The guy at the entrance said he thought something was being sold on the cheap but wasn't sure what it was.
"It took us over 20 minutes to even get parked and by the time we went in and saw the queue, we decided to just go home. It was actually insane."
Pictures taken from inside the large wholesaler warehouse showed scores of people with full trolleys waiting in long queues for the tills and a full car park on Sunday afternoon.
