I learned something new today while shopping at Costco. The asterisk (*) at the top right of the price tag sign means that item won't be reordered. So if you see one of your favorite items with that asterisk on the price, stock up.
I already knew the price codes, but for those that don't:
If a price ends in .97 it has been marked down. If a price ends in .49, .79, or. 89, Costco got a special deal from the manufacturer.
