I went to PriceSmart here in Panama City yesterday. This was my first opportunity to compare the one in David to the one in Panama City. I had thought that the one in Panama City might have more items, but from what I saw, the one in David had everything that is here in Panama City. In fact I looked for a couple items I had purchased in David that the Panama City PriceSmart didn’t have. That doesn’t really mean anything since items that you want seem to disappear quickly.
On another subject, I recently went to a COSTCO store in the US, which is PriceSmart in Panama. A COSTCO / PriceSmart card may be used in any location and each recognized by the other. I did notice a tremendous difference in the items offered in the COSTCO store vs. the items here in Panama. It was my first time in a COSTCO store and it was so large, I wondered how it compares now with the SAM’s club.
It is probably a good thing that I have returned to Panama and have a smaller selection of items to choose from. My mind hates the stress of making tough decisions on what to buy.
