Not true. Every other store I patronize has signs on each aisle telling you what is available on the aisle. They always put stuff in the same location. If they move location, they put little signs telling you the new location.
In other words, the other stores value their customers’ time. Not so Costco .
Costco has good quality meats, sweets, breads, blueberries, etc.
So does Sprouts, Safeway, Trader Joe’s and if you shop the sales you can get your stuff for lower prices than Costco.
I only shop at Costco when they have stuff I like on sale. Therefore the sardines. Trader Joe’s also has good sardines at the same price as Costco without the sale but the sale this month on Season’s sardines for $7 for 6 cans is a good deal. Hence my unfortunate experience with Costco hide their stuff policy.
