9.xx

I want to say 9.99 but I don't remember 100%. This was at the Richmond Hill location.
I think $9.96. I noted it today and tried to remember to post. Just under $10 anyways.

Whoever mentioned using those CleverCrates with the hand truck (also from Costco) a while ago is a genius

I stack them and use a small lightweight folding dolly. For living in a condo, this is essential.

Has anyone ever frozen the deli Shepherd's Pie?

I've got one that we're just not getting around to eating.

Recently in the Waterloo Costco I noticed they have a whole pig right next to the frozen whole lamb. Price was ~$80 iirc.

the only things I buy at Costco (Elgin mills and Leslie) are :

- rotisserie chicken
- chicken pot pie
- banana's
- hot dogs and French fries (food court)

what happened to Costco? stuff used to be cheaper but now groceries are pretty much the same price if not cheaper at grocery stores when sales arise ?

things like, cereal, chips, cookies, crackers, sauces (ketchup, bbq, dijon mustard, mayo,etc)

Has anyone purchased the 24 pack of Sparkling Ice from Costco lately?

It's always been the same 3 flavours in the pack. Black Raspberry, Orange Mango and Lemon Lime.

However I just noticed that the newest pack purchased from Costco is slightly different. It's still Black Raspberry and Orange Mango, but now instead of Lemon Lime it's Kiwi Strawberry.

that makes no sense though...inflation only happens at Costco?
if things were cheaper at Costco prior, they the cost would rise at both costco and the other grocery stores so they would still be cheaper. but they are not...

the only thing that I see that is cheaper is their rotisserie chickens and their food court items, makes getting a membership almost not worth it anymore.

does anyone know if their pharmacy is cheaper than regular ones? I've been there a couple times but I never got the same medicine from costco and then another place.
and are their cigarettes cheaper?

Costcos near me stopped carrying cigarettes.
Might be across Canada.

Their pharmacy items are dirt cheap for generics (e.g. ASA, acetaminophen, antihistamines)
Actual prescriptions, many people might not care if they have a drug plan, but for those without drug plan the savings can add up.

No membership required to use the Pharmacy - in Ontario at least.
