What's the deal with chicken and meat on the bone?

Went to Costco last week to stock up on chicken breasts with bone. They have since stopped selling it in central Ohio. Said that they get a couple extra selling days out of boneless, skinless breasts and that almost all of their meat is boneless as well. Huh? I much prefer chicken on the bone, the bones seem to impart more flavor, plus I like to stuff under the chicken skin with a variety of fillings. My only option seems to be to buy whole chickens and cut them up myself. While I am perfectly capable of doing so, there is only me in the house lately. My dark meat eaters have left.

So, I went to the local grocery store and noticed a HUGE price differential for chicken on the bone as well. First my pin bone sirloins & 7 bone chuck roasts disappeared, now my chicken breasts. Oh dear!
