Not to shop, but to pick up some unmerchanable wine my company had sold to them. One of the bottles was a 2001 Stags Leap WC Fay's Cabernet that had nothing wrong with it whatsoever-The cork wasn't even pulled. I guess a "Costco"mer just returned it on a whim. The employees didn't know a thing about wine, although I suppose this is varies from location to location. Personally, I wouldn't feel comfortable shopping at a store where wine was considered a commodity akin to cheap electronics and over-sized boxes of breakfast cereal, but that's just me.
And France is still producing the best and most QPR wines. Too bad they are being Americanized, and the Global Market is berating them as backward.
