About TheFlyingPig.com

Reasonable prices on imported groceries and general merchandise in Japan? When pigs fly! But that was before Costco Wholesale opened its doors here. Afterwards, there were only two problems left: not everyone can get to a Costco warehouse very easily, and Internet ordering isn't available. In a nutshell, TheFlyingPig.Com was launched to overcome these issues. (Please note that TheFlyingPig.Com is an independent entity, and is not owned or controlled by Costco.)

Cheap, quick, and convenient

Shop the site, pay by credit, COD or at the nearest bank or post office, and receive your order in just a few days. It's as simple as that.

We normally have your order ready to go the next day after confirming payment. Depending on where you live, you can generally expect to receive your order within a few days from you pay.

Even if you live within driving distance of a Costco warehouse, TheFlyingPig.Com can probably save you time and money. And if you don't have a car, you'll definitely appreciate low-cost home delivery of heavy and bulky items like soft drinks, canned foods, and paper towels.

Daily updates and useful notifications

Costco inventory shifts rapidly, as new items come into the store and old ones are cleared out to make room. We update TheFlyingPig.Com site almost every business day, so our users are among the first to know about new arrivals and clearance pricing.
