Costco Quality



I have long been a super-enthusiastic Costco member but it seems to me that their quality is dropping steadily as is their variety. The toilet paper is but one example. They also refuse to offer any kind of paper towels other than the select-a-size kind, which some of us do not like. I now buy paper towels from Home Depot. Sam’s Club also has the regular kind (plus the select-a-size) and I am tempted to join. It’s just that I really don’t want to support a Walmart operation. I think Costco’s slippage is tied to founder/CEO Jim Sinegal’s retirement (or was he just kicked upstairs). Under the new guy, price seems to be the driving factor in most everything. That’s the Walmart way and look where that has gotten THEM.
