    sigh. I couldn’t find it. Must have walked a mile.

      hi Danial,
      Sorry to hear that. Costco can be frustrating that way. Next time, call up your store and ask if they have the item number (e.g. 614919 for the SAF yeast) prior to heading out. It can save you some time…

    Was this item spotted at a regular Costco, or a Costco Business Center? Because I see all kinds of things in the background that I have only seen at business centers.
