Costco is a membership warehouse club, dedicated to bringing its customers the best possible prices on quality brand-name merchandise. With hundreds of locations worldwide, Costco provides a wide selection of merchandise, plus the convenience of specialty departments and exclusive member services, all designed to make the shopping experience a pleasurable one.
Chamber members since 2007, Costco believes in making the place that we live, work and play better by making a difference. Costco representative, Everitt Lilly and Karen Williams explain, “Costco wants to play an active role in the community and that’s why we joined the Dublin Chamber. Our goal is to be a community partner and resource for organizations focused on giving back to their own neighborhoods.”
In fact, Everitt and Karen, both members of the Chamber Ambassadors’ Club, currently participate in the Chamber’s Literacy Program by volunteering one lunch hour a week to read with local elementary students in an effort to increase reading fluency and comprehension.
“We would tell anyone who wants to make a difference in the community to get involved with the Dublin Chamber. It’s an amazing organization that provides countless ways to become connected and involved,” states Everitt.
This hands-on commitment carries over into Costco’s participation at many of the Chamber’s networking and educational events including NetworkDublin! Business Breakfast Meetings, Business After Hours gatherings, Re-Luncheonships and the Lunch & Learn series.
Costco clearly sees the correlation between being an involved corporate citizen and the bottom line. Everitt explains, “Being a member of the Dublin Chamber has brought more awareness of Costco to the Dublin area. It has helped us expand our business model and excel in growth. Costco is committed to building strong relationships with local businesses and organizations, and the Dublin Chamber provides the perfect platform to help us achieve our goals.”
