We bought 5 of those stainless steel shelves last year when they were on sale in the coupon book. Saved $20 on each. Funny thing is that in the Costco in Myrtle Beach, SC, those exact same shelves cost the same as they do in Canada. A lot of items are the same price, oddly enough.

Costco is good with that. I noticed that when the dollar started going up, the prices dropped on many items right away.
But be warned, I also have noticed that they will raise prices when the dollar drops.
They are the best retailer in terms of pricing based on currency swings.

Just to throw it out here in the thread...The Costco by Yorkdale (beside the Wilson TTC Station) sells a pretty large amount of Kosher certified meats.

Yes, I have seen Rolex watches at certain locations before.

which is that one? There isn't a Costco in that area...

There is one near Hwy.7/Woodbine...and one near Leslie/Elgin Mills....
