I recently noticed that my eye glasses seemed to not be working as well as they should, so I made an appointment at my local Costco optometry department.
When it came time for my appointment, I discovered that the examination and testing was done exactly the same as anywhere else. The optometrist even had a diploma on the wall! There were no major surprises, but my prescription did have to be adjusted. They told me it would take about a week for my new glasses to arrive and that they would call me.
Five days later I was notified that my glasses were ready. I went back to Costco to have them adjusted for fit. I loved them! Now I'm hoping that my prescription doesn’t change before I've had a chance to use all eight pairs...
Only folks who frequent Costco got that... (I hope)
I wonder how much food purchased at Costco ultimately gets thrown away because it gets too old before it can all be eaten. Do we really need to buy a 55 gallon drum of mayonnaise? Can we really use a case of anything? How about a 42 inch flat screen television multi-pack?
