Does Costco carry a WREATH other than red colour?

Hi! Looking to put a wreath on the house this year. I only see on Costco online the holiday wreath as 'red - backordered.' Do they likely carry blue or silver eventually?

Problem with Costco is their whole stocking strategy is to carry a limited supply both in the way of quantity (when it’s gone it’s gone)
And stocked items overall
(Approximately 4000 items at any given time ... and items are constantly rotated ... something gets added, something else gets dropped)

So truthfully ...
No way to know what’s coming down the pipe

And you cannot for example
Compare last years goods to this years inventory

Cuz if for example RED outsold BLUE or SILVER
They may forego those 2 other colours
Just so they can free up space in the 4000 items list
For 2 of something else

That’s how Costco works
It creates for them a HOT DEMAND inventory

Lesson ... IF YOU SEE IT ... BUY IT
Cuz tomorrow it may be gone
Never to return

EDIT / ADD - Provide a link
And fellow RFDers may be able to make comparable suggestions

Thank you! Interesting stuff. So I have noticed that some online items have a good amount of quantity remaining i.e. 50 or more, sometimes that item just instantly disappears from their website! What even happens to this remaining stock...?

They never had it in stock. They drop-ship.
Why do you want to buy your blue wreath from Costco if they don't have one? Buy from sellers that have what you want instead of from sellers who don't.

Yes I can be one of those overly loyal customers to companies I have had good experiences with. Based on some internet searches I’m seeing more silver than blue. There’s actually someone I know in the area who makes wreaths, I just remembered. Hopefully it’s not triple the price!
