Expedit alternative

Just bought 2 sets of expedit-like shelves at costco. Never got any expedits because I would have to have them shipped (shipping is expensive for them) so it was cool to see these...they are only in 2x4 configuration, but are WAY heavier/sturdier than expedits. They only come in dark brown, and are $130...more expensive, but still cheaper than the shipping costs and as I mentioned, much sturdier...also dark brown is better than black/natural IMO. The cubes are 13x13x15. So if you don't live close to an Ikea like me, they are a proper alternative.

  • pics pleez

  • Will post pics as soon as I get to the house and put them together...

  • damn really? shizzz, i am getting ready to place an order next week for 2 expedit's, but i also have a costco membership, theres no Ikea here in Nova Scotia so it is going to cost me a ton for shipping as well.

    i'd love to see some pics of this as well...

  • theyre called the O'nin Room Divider

    One of my pet peeves is how Expedits don't have backing. The way mine are set up, the shelves aren't flush with a wall in the back so it's a pain to re-file shit and have it look straight.

  • ^^ 1/4 or 1/2 inch masonite or MDF will fix that, plus add some stability to it as well

    thats the bomb, i am going to head over to costco tomorrow on my lunch, see if they gots these.

    edit - cant find anything on costco.ca or costco.com searching for the words "O'nin Room Divider
    "

  • they were literally putting them out on the floor when I was there today...maybe a new item?

    This does look pretty nice & sturdy. Plus, the black always gives them a more "finished" look IMO. Great score!

  • what breeze said.

    cityboy: post up if you find out if costco canada is carrying them pls....

    they're actually a really dark brown...but they do look black in that pic. I just hope they still have them in a month so I can cop a couple more.

    RLMAO in all seriousness it appears that all costco's should have this item it's probably not listed on the website yet because it is brand new...I mma cop two of them next weekend. Good looking on letting others know about this...

  • Do you have to be on some kinda membership steez to cop from Cotsco? Never shopped there, but I assume it's kinda like Sam's Club.

    I am not a member either...well let me make sure w/ my wife I may be a member. For some reason I don't think that you have to be a member to buy certain stuff.

  • ^^ yeah you need to have a membership, this is what they are in my area

    Executive Membership - $100
    Business Membership - $50
    Gold Star Membership - $55

    The clybourn location in Chicago has them. I'm not in the market otherwise I'd cop. They look nice.

    I saw this set up at CostCo today.
    They're nice, but I'm not sure they're all that much nicer than expedits for the extra price.
    I was hoping they would come with backs, but alas no.
    Good option for people without an IKEA nearby though.

    Sayin. $130 = a 4x4 expedit.
