Which one could you live without? A mall or a Costco? I think malls are more important.

I could live without either I think, but as I don't think I've ever been to a Costco I guess it would be easier to live without.

Costco because there is always Sam's Club as the other alternative.

In my observations, more older people like Costco and younger people will like malls more.

I think Costcos generate more tax revenue for a city and would be more important in that sense, but on another hand if Costco ever went under and some one else replaced them you still have your malls. Malls are struggling now yes, but they used to be tax revenue generators for cities.

I don't know the last time I was in either.

Probably three years ago when I went into the Crystal City mall in DC to take a leak

I've been to a Sam's Club before. I guess it might be an age thing as I didn't care for the warehouse thing, but my parents do somewhat. (Although I think they go to Wal-Mart itself more than Sam's Club)

My brother in a major metro goes to Costco some. Is it like a city thing?

The difference between Costco and Sam's Club is Costco tends to only have stores in major metropolitan areas.
