YES I feel it has brought us closer and it helps us
be a better team. I feel it is totally appropriate if

NO This has the potential to be a great con;ict of
interest. If employees are not friends with the
boss on Facebook will they be treated di;erently?

they keep their posts pleasant (nothing derogatory about anyone), it should not be a problem.

I’m a board-certi;ed plastic surgeon based
in northern New Jersey and New York City. I
wanted to thank you for writing this wonderful
article on choosing certi;ed dermatologist and
plastic surgeons for the injectables [“Cosmetic
injections,” December ;;;;]. It is great to have
this in a household magazine like The Costco
Connection. Yes, it is truly scary how patients
go to non-certi;ed practitioners unaware of the
dangers and unaware of their specialty.

All ads indicate whether a
product is available in the
warehouse, on Costco.com
or both. Products are scheduled to be available during
The Connection’s month of
publication and are noted as
in warehouse “early in month”
(1st to 10th), “mid-month”
(11th to 21st) or “late in month”
(22nd to 31st). Shop early in the
month for the best selection of
seasonal items. Costco.com
carries many of the products
available at the warehouses,
and offers thousands of additional items, including line
extensions and supplemental
products. Prices are usually not
listed 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
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 product availability.
