Alaska Sam’s Club Last Stand – The 2-Hour Line — Costco Defeats Sam’s!

Waiting to get in — Sam’s Club east in Anchorage, Alaska — first day that everything was 50% off — at 5pm.

Back of the line are the people left of the trees! Inside, the register lines were another two hours — all the way to the back wall!

Mom is to the right of the corner of the building in the light blue coat, hand raised, chatting with a nurse.

Former NWA coworkers: Tommy was to the left of the flag (red hat). And I saw Don S. inside!

Costco Defeats Sam’s Club in Anchorage, Alaska — Closing for Good

I commented:

The only thing I’ll greatly miss from Sam’s closing is Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips, 60% cacao.

Costco doesn’t have *dark* chocolate chips; otherwise, Costco’s items are either the same or superior.
Costco also has lots of organic! Their buyers are brilliant! Costco really has their act together.

I’ve wondered for years how Sam’s could stay open, because the store was almost always nearly vacant, with only two registers open, and needed — myself only going there for a few items once in awhile.
