We have to deal with them at work as well, well, for customers in the Republic of Ireland. Not heard of it being in the UK though.

Ah BestBuy, tried to hit the UK market, didn't last that long and went out of business here. lol Though I sometimes get calls from Costco's customer support, so I guess they've managed to hit the UK market (well, their call centre is based in the US, so it amuses me listening to them try to pronounce place names here), but my guess is they've got an online presence, because I've never, ever seen a Costco store here.
I just looked it up online, apparently they have stores, just not many and none near where I live.
