Win a Costco
YES. It creates a safer and simpler shopping
environment for both customer and retailer.
Fair Oaks, Texas
NO. You must not forget about the little guys:
churches’ collection plates, children’s spending money, tips in the travel and dining industry and more.
I was so impressed with the story about
the açaí berry of Brazil [“Berry healthy,”
February 2013]. I was most fascinated by the
triple bottom line, which considers not only
the profit for Sambazon, but the farmers, the
local communities and the Brazilian rain
forest as well.
Now I not only enjoy a new, healthy
drink, but know that I am contributing to a
larger community as well.
New Market, Maryland
Big on Costco
I am a larger woman. I cannot tell you
how many times in the past I wanted to purchase the beautiful women’s clothing items
carried by Costco.
Yes, beauty comes in all sizes [“Style, in
any size,” February 2013]. Wow! I just stopped
in yesterday at our local Spokane Valley store
and there they were: magnificent name-brand
clothing in plus sizes.
Thank you for stepping up and being the
leader we Costco members count on.
More room in the bathroom
Our house was designed by us and much
consideration was given to the physical limitations of seniors [“Restroom revival,” February
One of the biggest issues for us is wide
doorways, so that a wheelchair can easily get
in and out of a room.
Another is the opening position of the
bathroom doors. The bathroom doors should
open to the outside. In an emergency, it could
be a matter of life and death.
If someone falls, is unconscious and lies
against the door, it may take too long to reach
the injured person.
