ADVERTISING AND PRODUCTS
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.

I really enjoyed the [September] cover
story on Angela Duckworth and her best-seller,
Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance.
“Perseverance and passion” are the two fundamental ideas I have instilled in my two children:
Chase your passion and work hard. Both children are doing very well. I am very fortunate.
—Larry Webster, Matthews, North Carolina
Fabulous pieces in your September
issue on Angela Duckworth and her brilliant
look at the importance of grit with respect
to achievement, and also the amazing and
awesome story behind Daniel Lubetzky,
CEO of KIND [“A bite of kindness”]. Two
well-grounded, highly principled and hugely

Costco’s grocery delivery program
I am often on the road on business.
My mom, who is in her 80s and lives with
me, does not know how to drive. She relies
on me to take care of groceries before or
after my trips. Our favorite grocery stop has
always been Costco.
I truly appreciate that Costco initiated
CostcoGrocery [“Shopping is in the bag,”
September 2018]. I can now order groceries
online—even if I am 3,000 miles away—and
have them delivered to my house. I am assured
of the quality of products I will receive and the
commitment to deliver in a timely manner.
My mom and I are very happy and loyal
members. Thank you, Costco!
—Maria D.C. Gregorio, Fair Oaks, California
I was happy to read the September article
about Melissa and Doug Bernstein [“Taking
back childhood”]. Their products have always
delighted me as an educator and grandparent. Too many products o;ered for children
today ignore a child’s developmental needs.

Dealing with dry eyes
My wife and sister-in-law both had problems with dry eyes [“Dry eyes,” September
2018] after cataract and laser surgeries. After
various prescription treatments failed, they
tried maqui berry extract, and within a few
weeks their dry eyes problems disappeared.
They continue to take the maqui berry
extract every day.
—Bruce Hall, Lake Orion, Michigan
So great to see this tip [“Allergy-free
Halloween,” This Month] in the Costco
Connection. I just learned of it earlier this year
and love that Costco is spreading the word!
• The recipe suggestion in the text of
“Mixing it up” should have read: Try adding a
half cup of gluten-free baking flour to achieve
a lighter batter.
• The book ad for Unbroken mistakenly
identifies Louis Zamperini as the only survivor
of his plane crash. There were two survivors:
Zamperini and Russell Allen Phillips.
