Price compare: BJs & Costco vs Target/other supermarkets

Does anyone know of any article published in consumer publications (or web sites) comparing prices at BJs or Costco with those at Target or other discount suypermarkets?

The last time I was at BJs, I noticed that altho some items were priced very competitively, most were not. And then I looked around at the shoppers, and what they had in their baskets, andmost of the shoppers did not look to me like particularly savvy shoppers, and most had items that could have been obtained for less money (perhaps in a different brand, size, etc0 elsewhere. Not to mention the need to buy humongous quantities.

I no longer shop at those places. (Among other reasons, the parking lots at these places are horrendous, with shoppers apparently in such pursuit of "bargains" that they;'ve turned off their brains, and do not drive intelligently--thereby making me spend extra time in the lot.)
