INSIDE COSTCO // SERVICES
A seasoned provider
ostco Services does not add new services
without serious consideration. “It takes
time and a great deal of research to
ensure Costco members are getting
something they need, and with the great quality
and value they expect from Costco,” says Mark
DerGarabedian, Costco Services director. “So it’s
an exciting event when a new one comes along.”
