Today’s consumer tip: Don’t buy these items at Costco
Today’s consumer tip: How to remove a wax or wax/plastic seal on top of a wine cork

Sale items at Office Depot are my best consumer experience while waiting in line at Safeway disappoints

Office Depot

The best

This week, I wanted to buy printer cartridges at Office Depot, but the store I went to is closing. It didn’t have the Canon cartridges I use, but I got a $10 coupon and a $5 gift card to use at another store. I also found these items for up to 40 percent off: photo/disk mailers, flashlights, and labels. And, later is the day, I used the coupon and gift card for the cartridges.

The worst

My local Safeway, where I get my prescription drugs, recently was remodeled. Now the pharmacy clerk has to paw through a bin to find the prescriptions. Before, they hung on racks in plastic containers in alphabetical order. I had to wait 20 minutes to get my prescription. I let the manager know and that I can get my medications elsewhere, even though the Safeway store in convenient.
