“Dear PoPville,

Heads up for anyone headed CostCo in NE… they’ve cleared out most of the meat due to the heat and anything still available is ‘insulated’ under cardboard. Other open refrigerated sections are shielded with pull-down shades. Pretty wild ahead of the holiday. This was around 6:30pm Monday night.
