Ruby Tuesday - Costco

About once a month I shop at Costco to stock up on groceries. The store and its baskets are trimmed with red which reminds me of the Ruby Tuesday meme. And this time of year there seems to be an increase in merchandise and shoppers sporting the color red.

Wow, you really captured a LOT of red in a short amount of time! You must have arrived at opening time to find all the carts in an orderly fashion. =)I like all those floral arrangements. I bet they smelled wonderful.

Happy RT!

Red is all around this Costco! Yet, like Target, ruby seems to be a great attraction to us retail buyers. Even the buyers offer lots of ruby in their shoppingwear. They all seem ready to support their favorite retailer. Happy New Year!

Red is a beautiful color, and you've captured some very fun scenes! The candle one is the best though.

My husband and I love going to Costco. They have a wonderful variety of things to browse through.
Have a Happy and Healthy New Year, Diane.

Hi Diane, We don't have Costco near us--but we do have Sam's (which is similar). AND--like you, we go there about once a month. Sam's has the BEST meat of anyone--so we buy our chicken, beef and pork there...

Happy New Year!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Nice pics Diane. Sure is lots of red...

Looks like many of the customers were wearing red too! Bringing your camera to Costco yielded LOTS of 'rubies' ;-)
Hugs and blessings,
My Ruby Tuesday

Hope you had a great Christmas,
