Costco’s Biggest Fan Gets Surprise Of His Life During Shopping Trip On His Birthday

Clint Blevins loves Costco. Like, A LOT. It’s pretty amazing. According to his wife, Emma, he’ll make a trip to the store more than once a week. That’s why, when it came time to plan his 27th birthday, she came up with a rather unique party idea. Not only was it Costco themed, it was literally at the actual store. Best of all, Clint had absolutely no idea what was his wife had in store for him once they got there — he thought they were simply shopping! But Emma had lots of surprises up her sleeve…

At first, their shopping trip seemed normal. Then, as Emma and Clint walked through the store, they ran into someone they knew. Soon after, another friend popped up. This continued to happen, but Clint simply thought it was a fantastic coincidence. But that quickly changed when he spotted his “mammaw,” who never shops there. This is the moment he realizes that something is going on…

“He loves Costco so much, so I thought he would really enjoy seeing all of his favorite people around the store,” Emma explains.

Once the secret was out, Clint’s friends and family gathered in the food court. Here, they got some entertainment in the form of a clown making balloon animals. They also enjoyed a meal — topped off with a slice of birthday cake, of course!

Clever Woman Surprises Her Husband With a Costco Birthday Party

People can’t get enough of Clint’s unconventional birthday party — or the fact that Emma came up with such a perfect idea to begin with!

“I’m a cashier at that Costco in Ringgold, GA and had the pleasure of singing happy birthday to you along with the entire front end,” someone shares in the comments. “I’m glad you had an amazing birthday and shared it with us too.”

“This is probably the most creative thing I’ve ever seen,” another writes. “Who plans a party at Costco? Hilarious.”
