Oh, yes, that is given. Everyone should use common sense when shopping.
There is no way Costco can beat special sales price from specialty stores around the globe.
Price of meat is yet a difficult subject, because different stores have different quality meat. Also, I have never heard of Arnold’s Meats. I know Pepe’s Meats. 🙂
I would not buy most electronics & computer items from Costco because Costco simply cannot beat sales price from specialty stores.
If you are clueless about electronics, you can trust Costco, pay OK price, and enjoy easy shopping experience.
