Artisan cheese tray on clearance at Costco

Browsing the cheese shelves at Costco (San Leandro) I ran across a bargain: something dubbed "Artisan cheese tray" for $14.97. Note that at Costco, a price ending in .97 means it's marked down/on clearance.
The cardboard tray has three wedges (approx 7 oz. each) of US artisan cheeses: Beecher's Flagship, Rogue Creamery's Flora Nelle and Cypress Grove's Lamb Chopper. In addition, there was a box of Savannah Bee company honeycomb marked "8-10 oz." This is a great bargain if you can find it, since the honeycomb alone retails for more than that (on igourmet $19.99 for 11 oz; the cheeses are 13.99, 15.99 and 14.99, respectively, per 8 ounces on igourmet). The cheeses are nearing their sell-by dates, which is undoubtedly why it's being discounted. However, the cheeses are in about as good condition as shrink-wrapped cheese can be expected to be.
