Oh happy day-- both Costco and Trader Joe's are opening in Sarasota in a matter of weeks. I've never shopped in either store. Would appreciate suggestions regarding what types of food items would be worthwhile exploring -- and what to avoid.
I'm really interested in getting better quality and selection of food than is currently available -- bread, meats/poultry, spices, produce, prepared foods, wine, etc. Of course a bargain is great, but buying 36 giant rolls of toilet paper or mega bottles of ketchup won't motivate me.
