Storage Hook Set of 30
93K81.01   Technical Information 
$22.90

If I need a wall? An 8ft sheet of 3/4″ plywood is about? Okay i’ll be generous and say $60.00. So for $82.90 I can have 30 hooks and a sheet upon which to mount them

Yikes … colour me confused? Where is the saving here?

Maybe it’s the 32 sq.ft? Nope, simple math tells me 4×8=32 The hooks? 20pc vs. 30 hooks, of the screw in type. Maybe that’s it? The slots will cost me $47.80? Wow!

Obviously I have far too much moola and Costco wishes to relieve me of that heavy burden! Way to go Costco and it only cost a $100 pa. for that service.
