Costco East & West website updates July 3rd 2021
Hello my fellow Costco friends and family!
Just a friendly little Sunday morning “hello!” and some updates and information about our continued quest to improve our website.
We have successfully migrated our newsletter to a new service, since our previous service (Google Feedburner) is ending this month.
The only problems is that many of these E-mails are being directed directly to SPAM folders. Please check your SPAM folder to see if the newsletter is being sent there instead! The E-mail will come from Costco East Fan Blog (firstname.lastname@example.org)
If you use a service like Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail, please check off the “not SPAM” button so that these mail services know that this E-mail is NOT SPAM.
You can also add email@example.com to your E-mail address book. This way your mail provider will know not to send these E-mails to your SPAM folder.
OTHER WEBSITE UPDATES
Believe it or not, we are still data entering all the old photos into our search engine! We have successfully entered 33457 photos into the database and we have just under 30,000 photos left. As of now, the photos go back to April, 2019.
Now that the newsletter & search engine has been completed, we have time to work on some user requests! we’d love to hear from you on what improvements are next!
Right now, we are working on the following tasks:
– Return colour photos back to the price tag
– Improve the quality of the price tag in the photos
– Making photos clickable to load a High Quality version of the photo
– Adding a price history button in the caption of each photo to load historical sale data
After this, we have some ideas that we would like to get to, but we would love to hear from you! If you have any ideas on additional functionality for the blog, please let me know in the comments!
COVID-19 vaccinations are ramping up across Eastern Canada, follow the links below to find out if you’re eligible and where they are available in your Province.
Since we are still in the third wave of COVID-19 I think it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the corona virus weeds yet, and each province has their own Health recommendations based on the provinces individual risk assessment and I would recommend that you follow the recommendations for your specific province. Information can be found at the following websites.

The price at your local Costco takes precedent (or precedence) over the prices listed on this blog.
Costco liquidation/Manager’s Special items (ending in .97) vary from store to store.
An asterisk (*) on the price tag means the item is not being re-ordered.
If there is something you really want, ***double check the expiry date*** as some Costco sales items do end mid-week.
