I would not have been surprised to see a .....

Yamaha....or a Vienna.....or a digital piano of some sort.......I'm not putting any of these in the same category, I've just seen these there before.......

What I didn't expect to see were a few Kawai uprights...
....and a 5'4" Mason and Hamlin!

Cool!

Are they viewable online?

Doesn't seem like this is that unusual of an occurrence....

I would imagine that CostCo has a lot of traffic with customers coming in and out of the stores. I can see where some piano dealers see this as an opportunity to display some of their pianos in hopes of generating a few sales... impulse buying can be a strong force.

At Costco Marina Del Rey last week they only had low end Yamahas. The nicest one was a GC1m, no C or CX. T118 but no U series on the floor but could sell me one out of the book for $8995. The guy watching the stock didn't want to say who he was with after I asked if he was with Yamaha or from a local store. He said, "We're independent" and changed the subject.

Temecula, and I didn't even think to look for a vendor. Maybe if I had been in the market for either one.....

Wow... I've never seen an acoustic piano at our Cincinnati Costco. Great chocolate chip cookies, though!
