Four things not to buy at Costco, assuming that one is coming someday

OK, we all know you're waiting for news on Costco. Not since the advent the Olive Garden has there been such interest, and to be frank even in those days people were already asking about Costco.

Since we found out Dec. 23 that the company has boots on the ground locally, we've been determined to check periodically to keep tabs. A call Thursday to Costco's headquarters in Issaquah, Wash., brought the response I expected. Our interest was appreciated, but the company's development calendar doesn't show anything planned for Idaho Falls in the next six months.

This is how it's going to be until the Costco has a deal and is ready to make an announcement. Some of you may not be able to contain yourselves and will go to Pocatello to get your fixes. For your benefit, here's a link to a story about the four things you should not buy at Costco: designer clothes, imported shrimp, sheets and towels and bulk produce.
