    Costco Touhy gas was loaded, to the brim, ten cars in every line, at least. Packed as tight as a 400/lb day-shift Santa in a red suit.

    Mettawa gas line was pretty normal yesterday and today. Maybe some people dont realize that less gas for the east coast means more gas for us.

    A local Springfield grocer purchased Waygu Rib Eye Cap Steaks from Allan Bros. They were sold for $15 per pound.
    That was about three weeks ago. Allen's freezers were filled up during the worst of the pandemic slow down.
    Yes, they were wonderful.

    Dear Costco Member,

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control recently announced new guidance regarding COVID-19 and vaccines. Among other things, the CDC now says that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask in most settings, except where required by state and local laws. People are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine.

    Based on this new guidance regarding vaccine effectiveness, beginning May 14, 2021, we are modifying our policy regarding face coverings in some U.S. Costco locations.

    U.S. locations with no state or local mask requirements - revised policy
    In Costco locations where the state or local jurisdiction does not have a mask mandate, we will allow members and guests who are fully vaccinated to enter Costco without a face mask or face shield. We will not require proof of vaccination, but we ask for members’ responsible and respectful cooperation with this revised policy. Face coverings will still be required in healthcare settings, including Pharmacy, Optical, Hearing Aid. Costco continues to recommend that all members and guests, especially those who are at higher risk, wear a mask or shield.

    U.S. locations with state or local mask requirements - no policy change
    In those Costco locations where the state or local jurisdiction does have a mask mandate, we will follow the state or local regulations and continue to require members and guests to wear a face mask or face shield. Children under the age of 2 are exempt. If a member or guest has a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask, they must wear a face shield.

    As before, our goal is to continue to provide a safe shopping environment for our members and guests and to provide a safe work environment for our employees, while following public health advice and applicable laws.

    Thank you for your continued cooperation and support.

    Craig Jelinek
    President and CEO

    Given the number of maskholes who can't seem to figure out how to cover their breathing apparatus, I'm going to keep wearing a mask when shopping.

    Bought a 3 pack of Kirkland San Marzano Tomatoes at Costco for pizza/sauces, they are the real deal. Found them at the Naperville location.

    Costco is bringing back a pre-pandemic staple: Food samples. The warehouse chain announced that it's "beginning a phased return to full sampling" early next month after a 14-month hiatus. Roughly 170 US locations will bring back food samples in the first week of June with "most of the remaining locations" returning toward the end of June, said Costco Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti on Thursday's earning call.

    I was at the Oakbrook location today. Saw the sign as I was leaving. Face coverings are now optional for fully vaccinated people.

    So, here we go.

    Perhaps as big as real sampling, the condiment station is coming back to the food court.

    I haven't been able to stand yellow mustard since I was 5, and to offer only that and ketchup for hot dogs was very disappointing. Sure, it's not as good a dog as the Hebrew National version they used to serve, but as a cheap indulgence after a shopping trip, I'm glad to have the spicy mustard, onions and relish back.

    They're also carrying Jaffa brand guacamole from the owner of Garden Fresh. Really good. Always nice to see locally-made goods.

    Strack’s by me (Valpo) has 5-6 Jaffa Mexican items —all that I’ve tried so far (avocado salsa, salsa verde, salsa Arbol and salsa Molcajete) have been great. I’ve always thought their Middle Eastern offerings were better than the typical store-bought so happy to see them add more quality products to the line.
