Sugar in Seattle

Postby acetate » Tue Dec 18, 2012 10:43 pm

I have been buying sugar from Costco but would like to stop as I have been buying a lot. I know there are a lot of Puget Sounders on this forum. Anyone have a good supplier of 25 lbs sacks of sugar?

Cash and Carry sometimes has good prices.

Like you, Costco is my sugar source. We have so many Costos close that you should be able to move a round a bit, and by the time you came back to the first, they'd have forgotten you. We've got 6 or 7 of them in the area we move around in, not counting when we go to Portland.

Admittedly, I'm not a huge sugar user outside of rum season.

Beekeepers use lots of sugar in the winter months to keep the bees happy and fed. Any one asks tell em so. I use to run several hundred colonies, we bought 50 pound sacks frequently.

When you check out at Costco you give them your membership card. Think about that. :oops:

My concern has been the membership card. I am less worried about workers and more concerned about tracking.

Thanks for the Cash n Carry suggestion. I'll stop by tomorrow and see what they got. I would even a pay a bit more to roll up and pay cash, with no membership cards involved.

I've hauled some big loads of sugar from the Cash and Carry in snoose junction without any odd looks. The prices are good too. I need about 350# going into winter, though, so I usually grab a bag or two each time I go into a store here on the island too. Nobody seems to notice.Won't be seeing the inside of a store till June now.
