The Costco bakery has come to my rescue a number of times, especially when it’s something like, "Can you bring a dessert good for 14 people?" In addition to cakes, Costco make good pies, especially the apple pie.
I remember GEX, the shopping Club that required some kind of government employment for membership.
Mr. Mayor sums it up for Costco. They are the same sort of deal as Sam’s club and BJ’s.
