Emart Traders is a direct knock-off.

Emart Traders is a direct knock-off.

Except it has better products (IMO) and you don't need a membership card to buy there.

The Costco membership is just to keep the riffraff out. It is 35,000 won - that is easily saved on my family's meat savings alone!

I do agree that Emart has higher quality goods in most cases.

They also have more flexible payment options (they take a wide range of credit cards, not just Samsung (soon to be Hyundai).

Never card for most of the e-mart traders products. IMO they were lower quality varieties of products popular at Costco and were higher priced.
