Many people have sent in a tip about theflyingpig.com, so it’s about time I did a little write-up on this great service in Japan. I really don’t know what took me so long! I should have written about them much much earlier than now.
Here is a little about TheFlyingPig.com in their own words:
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.)
In other words, if you don’t have a Costco near you, you can order through TheFlyingPig.Com and they will go to Costco and hook you up. They are highly recommended by many many foreigners living in Japan, so give them a shot. They have a nice selection of cheese too!
Have you used theflyingpig.com before? Tell about your experiences in the comments!
