Costco in Everett now selling wine and beer
Apologies if this is old news on this board, but I was surprised to see the addition of a wine and beer shop when I went to the Everett Costco today. It's a similar cage-like structure to the setup in the Waltham Costco and appears to be run by an outfit called KH&H Liqours. Costco membership is not required to shop there. Based on a quick browse, I saw some interesting things, but prices weren't particularly competitive -- seemed pretty standard.
Too bad you have a sub-contractor situation. Although my rural state only has one Costco and it is 40 miles away from my residence, the "non-caged" beer/wine/liquor section is quite decent and the prices run about 20-25 percent less than most grocery/liquor stores in Iowa ...
