Very good prices. I did some comparisons to what Morrell in New York charges and couldn't find an instance where Morrell charges less. Some of the above descriptions are incomplete, but where I could find matches Morrell was always more. Very difficult to compete with limited selection/high volume, unless of course what you want isn't available at Costco.

Point well taken, FG.

I went in search of several Loire / Chinon items, and found zippo. Last time in they had quite a selection.

While I was writing out my prices, I noticed the typical buyer in the wine aisle was taking six bottles or a full case. That's typical of Gary's or Wine Library, but not my local liquor stores.

Next time I'm over there, I'll price the brandies. I suspect there would be a similar differential.
