    If it's anything like when the Sydney one opened, expect huge lines and traffic for months till the novelty wears off and especially if you haven't joined as a member beforehand.

    All that said, I am looking forward to going to this new one eventually.

    I have to wonder - for those with offset accounts surely it's not beneficial to buy in such large quantities that I believe you have to with them?

    I can't wait to go! I'll probably wait a couple of weeks.

    We're pretty local & went today at around 5.30pm, by the time we left at 7.30pm it was chaos.

    Dinner cost us about $8 for the 3 of us, that is all we bought cause DD2 was ready for bed & I couldn't settle her. Levi's were $50, Havianna's $12, some stuff was a bargain, some not.

    If you shopped monthly you would definitely save money on groceries. We'll go back another time to really check it out.

    Just a bit of a tip: sign up online, the queue to sign up was massive but only a few in the queue to collect cards after signing up. I signed up online whilst I was there and I had my card within 10mins.

    So DH and I went after he finished work today (just on our way home). It was very busy with people so that part of it was crap, but we were also expecting that as it's new. We pre purchased our membership online so only had to queue behind about 3 people as opposed to the line of about 100 people waiting to sign up. We bought some staple items (toilet paper, body wash, toothbrushes, sanitary items) and I would definitely be going back for those. So much cheaper. Washing powder and napisan stuff was so much cheaper too, and it's the kind of thing you could buy in bulk no problems. Some things were a bit OTT like the 10kg block of cadburys milk chocolate but on the whole it was good. My only advice would be to leave kids at home if you can, or at least have them in the trolley - particularly while it's so busy. There were kids everywhere and with giant trolleys it's harder to see them. But then again some parents were totally clueless as to where their kids were/what they were doing which is crazy when it's so busy.
