Costco #144 (America’s First Urban Costco) in SoMA chose to sell some Cal-branded stuff but that turned out to be a mistake.
These lovely paper plate / paper napkin sets originally sold for over $10, at first. But not many people wanted them so managers were forced to mark these things down to just $2.97, just to get them out of there.
For shame, Cal Alum, for shame. Have you no Spirit?

I’ll bet the bright red Stanfurd sets stocked at more southerly Costcos sold out at full price.
A: “Hey babe, you used to be a Lecturer at Cal, right? Don’t you want one of these sets, you know, for a party or something?”
