There are many things I always buy at Costco. But there are also things I never buy there.

Not everything the warehouse club sells is a bulk bargain.

I’m not hating on Costco, though. I’m just using the beloved retailer to underscore the potentially high cost of being loyal to a store and failing to comparison shop.

I’m talking about not just comparing the price of one brand with another sold at the same store, but comparing the prices of one retailer with those of another.
