I just saw "JC Penny surges as sales decline slows" on BNN.... guess that's not it eh!

I almost never say anything good about retail. Wandering around Costco last night to pick up a chicken for supper I was checking out the "Prizes" and sampling the offerings while waiting for the fresh ones to come off the spit (there were none on the counter). I stumbled on a product that I buy often in grocery stores but at a price far below what I'm used to paying. There was another shopper standing in my way and she turned to me and asked about it. We got into a discussion that turned into a love fest for Costco. Once I retrieved my prize to head back to the chicken counter she laughed and said "I actually work here but I'm off today".

The chicken wasn't quite ready but I heard a staff member pick up his radio when someone called asking about "a customer asking about German ham" and replied "He means Black Forest ham its on special I'll get it for him".

I got my chicken, threw it in the cart with my other prizes and headed for the checkout, their was only one person in line and I was through in seconds with my $78 worth of prizes and chicken. These people are worth their relatively high salary.
