The One with the Kirkland Costco
Wednesday, April 30, 2008
Have you ever wondered why Costco's brand is called Kirkland Signature? According to Wikipedia the name derives from the fact that Costco's corporate headquarters were located in the city of Kirkland, Washington between 1987 and 1996. Today the headquarters are not too far away in the city of Issaquah, Washington. And right between those two cities is my home town of Redmond. Chris and his Pops really like to shop at Costco, so when Chris came out to Washington for the very first time, of course we had to hit up THE one and only Kirkland Costco! Chris was very excited to be there so he called his Pops, and that's who is talking to on the phone in all these pictures. A new Costco warehouse is currently under construction in Redmond, so we won't go to Kirkland for very much longer. I'm bittersweet about it.
