Online Edition. Just

ALL PRODUCTS advertised are carried
at Costco warehouses unless otherwise
noted; however, products may not be
available in all warehouse locations.
■ Products are scheduled to be available
during The Connection’s month of
publication and are noted as in warehouses “early in month” (1st to 10th),
“mid-month” (11th to 21st) or “late in
month” (22nd to 31st).
■ All ads indicate whether a product
is available in the warehouse, on
Costco.com or both.
■ 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. We hope that
members know to check Costco first
when comparison shopping.
■ To keep prices low, Costco does not
offer a telephone service allowing
members to call in for prices or
■ Shop early in the month for best
selection on seasonal items.
■ Costco.com carries few of the products
available at the warehouses, but offers
3,500 additional items, including line
extensions and supplemental products.
