They also intentionally randomize the store's layout periodically. (They do this MUCH more often than Sam's Club, in my experience.) That's because they want to force you to go down every aisle to see what is available today. Part of the rational for that is that Costco does special and seasonal buys of various products

I have to wonder if this varies by store (and manager). My regular Costco has a pretty static layout. Left = pharmacy, meds, pets, foods, paper products. Right = TVs/electronics, office goods, home goods, auto/sporting goods. Center = snacks/candy, clothing, media, and seasonal items. Back = fridge/freezer cases, meats, produce, bakery.

The seasonal section is the only thing that changes significantly - it has pool/summer/outdoor items now, then it will turn over for the holidays to decorations, gifts, toys. Occasionally they'll do a furniture or art or jewelry "road show" which takes over the seasonal section. But for the staples I regularly buy, there's little/no change.
