    Costco is notorious for stocking items that they are NOT allowed to sell. They do this with Underarmour all the time. They purchase huge lots of items though other legitimate dealers, and receive the order in a back ally.... My Underarmour rep has personally went in there and purchased these items with his business Under armour Credit card to send to corporate. It then is out of the store. I know people who work at Costco that have told me this goes on all the time. Sad when it hurts the small local
    retailers....

    Justin, just a word of warning. I'm seeing a political view coming from your posts. Skirting with board guidelines.

    I see the Orvis store in NYC is selling Simms gear. Waders, vests, boots, etc....thought that a bit strange.
