Mark Zuckerberg may be the eight-richest person in the world, but he’s just like any other dad: He loves and appreciates a good bargain.
Ahead of the winter holiday season, the Facebook CEO was spotted perusing the aisles of Costco, TMZ reported Friday. The photo appears to show Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan – who have two children, ages 2 and 4 – browsing the selection of TVs on offer at a Mountain View, California Costco.

You might not expect to see Zuckerberg at Costco, a warehouse retail chain known for selling products in bulk and at lower prices than other stores. Zuckerberg’s net worth currently stands at an estimated $US77.5 billion, according to Forbes. And the 35-year-old Facebook founder owns a collection of expensive homes, includinga $US22 million estate in California’s Lake Tahoe and a $US100 million property in Hawaii.
Yet Zuckerberg and Chan have been noted for living frugally in certain aspects of their life. The couple was spotted eating at McDonald’s in Rome just days after their secret wedding in May 2012. Zuckerberg’s uniform of choice for work is typically a grey t-shirt under a dark hoodie, and a pair of jeans.
Facebook and the Chan-Zuckerberg initiative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
