Reader’s guide to
All products advertised are carried at Costco warehouses,
denoted by this icon , or at costco.com unless otherwise
noted. Products are scheduled to be available during the period
of The Connection’s issue date. Products may not be available
in all warehouse locations. To keep prices low, Costco does not
offer a telephone service allowing members to call in for prices
or product availability.
Prices are usually not listed in the advertising because they
have not been finalized at the time of printing and may vary
from one part of the country to another due to shipping costs.

This icon denotes products that are available on the Web
site. The Web site carries few of the products available at the
warehouses, but offers 3,500 additional items, including line
extensions and supplemental products. An item-number listing
does not mean the product can be found online.
Shop early in the month for best selection on seasonal products.
Calling all family
RESEARCH SHOWS that more
than 80 percent of all businesses
in North America are family
businesses. Yet, research also
finds that less than half of
family businesses survive
into the second generation.
If your family runs a
business, The Connection
would love to hear
challenges and benefits do you experience
from working with your
family? And what steps have
you taken, or do you plan to
take, to see the successful
transfer of leadership from
one generation to the next?
