we have been longtime Costco members, we
have never used the pharmacy service before.
We got the prescription a day before we were
leaving for a two-week vacation. There was an
issue with our insurance company, and all
three pharmacy employees stayed late to make
numerous phone calls to get it straightened
out so we would have the necessary medication before we left for our trip. We have never
had that outstanding of service from any other
pharmacy and will now only get our prescriptions through Costco. We want to thank all
three employees who were determined to get
us what we needed.
A ribbon runs through it
Just read your interesting article on
Kirkland Signature™ ribbon in the latest issue
of The Costco Connection [“The name behind
the label,” September 2014]. At the historic
site here in Pennsylvania that I work for, we
exclusively use Costco ribbon for all our
Victorian Christmas decorating and we’ve
been doing it for years. The price is fantastic,
and just as important, as you mention in the
article, it is continuous and wonderful for
spreading across wide mantels and triple windows in this historic house. We also appreciate that there are always quite a few designs
that work with our time period and the color
schemes in many of the rooms.
We look forward to when the holiday rib-
bon is available and base our décor for each
room on the ribbon choices you offer. One
third of our yearly visitation comes through
this historic house from Thanksgiving through
New Year’s. Visitors marvel at the outstanding
decorations and often get ideas for decorating
their own homes from a guided tour through
this early-20th-century mansion.
We’ve already purchased ribbon for this

The September issue of The Costco
Connection is, like all the issues, full of pleas-
ant surprises. Most of the articles are perti-
nent to my wife’s and my lifestyle. Some of
the articles are helpful and fun to read; some
are just interesting. The quality of the writ-
ing is excellent, and that is surprising in a
company advertising magazine. We particu-
larly enjoyed the articles on “Snacks for a
change,” “Creative Cooking” and “For Your
Now that I am retired I am also doing
some writing and have authored two books
and many magazine articles. For me, the arti-
cle on “Writing tips” was very interesting.
I have come to look forward to receiving
your magazine each month.

This is a great, inspiring read about
everyday heroes, who weren’t trying to be.

Insightful article on content marketing.
The recipe on page 64 of the September
2014 issue should have said to combine the
quick oats with the flour and other dry ingredients in the first step.
