I think every Costco shopper has had this experience: you find a product you love at Costco, often a Kirkland brand product, you come to depend on its existence, and then without warning Costco stops carrying it (or stops making it).
Garrett had lost about 50 pounds when Costco stopped carrying Kirkland oatmeal, a staple of his weight loss regime. He decided he had to have that oatmeal and determined to buy all of it before it went away. Today he is successful:
I now have a one year supply of Kirkland signature costco oatmeal, for only the low, low price of 142 dollars.
I know Costco loves to rotate the stock to keep us buying, but, come on, throw us a bone here. Costco, I’ll make you a deal… if I see a discontinued sign on a product and I am willing to commit to $200 worth of purchases of that product if you will keep it on the shelves, then you will do so, at least until I am unwilling to keep following through on that commitment. That seems fair to me. Or do I need to go higher to seal the deal?
