..... At Russia’s fortress-like Embassy on Wisconsin Avenue, north of Washington’s Georgetown neighborhood, Kislyak also hosts parties for fellow diplomats, Russia specialists and other Washingtonians with personal or business ties to Russia. (Though elegant, those functions may also reveal hints of Russia’s economic malaise: At one recent event, bartenders served Kirkland vodka—the brand sold by the bulk-discount retailer Costco.)
The Russian Embassy did not respond to a request for comment.
The Costco Tire Center has always been a great membership benefit but it has not been without problems. While tire installation is generally fast, 20- 30 minurtes, waiting for them to get to your car can take hours. As great a deal as the $1.50 hotdog and drink at the Costco Food court is, you can't stretch that out for 2 hours. The anouncement of appointments and extended hours Starting October 27, 2014 in Azuza (check your local warehouse) makes the Costco Tire Service close to perfect.
The Costco Tire Advantage already boasted incredible free benefits:
Lifetime Maintenance Services that extend throughout the life of the tires you purchase. (some limits may apply)
Lifetime inflation preasure checks.
Inflation using nitrogen - superior to air (for tires).
