I’ll admit it – I’m addicted to shopping at the Livermore Costco, and in fact, it’s easily one of my very favorite stores ever! The employees are almost always smiling and willing to help out if you ask. I love the food court (who can beat a 20-ounce soda plus refill for 55 cents these days?) and the free samples, and I love the variety of inventory offered even more. My husband likes hanging out in the electronics section, while I’m a fan of the children’s clothing and books. And we’re not even talking about all of the excellent-quality food and beverages offered! It really is a one-stop shop for just about everything you might need. The only thing that might make Costco even better in my eyes are their Black Friday specials! This year, they’re offering a free Costco cookbook along with numerous other price reductions on items from video games to plasma TVs. They’ll be packed with shoppers on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but stop in anyway! I’m sure we will!
