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.
