Can't you just give them the item number and have them ship it from a store or warehouse that does have them? If one store carries it, then the entire chain can GET the item. It's a wholesale Wal-Mart, same company essentially. But, I don't see why if the chain sells item, why they can't have the item number sent to the store of your choosing like Wal-Mart.

Got mine yesterday at the Irvine, CA Costco, $64.99. Ending up at $70 and change after tax (8.75%), it's a savings of around $30 when you figure in shipping from online retailers. This location started with a stock of 10 and there were 7 remaining after my purchase.

Can you look at the box or register receipt and get the UPC code or a Costco Item#?
PM'd also.
Thanks.
The reason I'm asking is that I should be able to go to a Costco manager and get one ordered if I know the UPC code and/or the Item#.

Not to brag, but with 14 outer and 14 inner chains it catches anything thrown within the city limits. Spit outs are maybe 1 out of 200 and blow throughs never happen. I had to give $75 for mine and about another $45 for the chains and the dude to weld it. It was and still is a great deal for the money. Without the inner chains though, you will likely be a little disappointed.
I have the same setup and frankly I hate it. It catches so well that you get over confident and then go out to the real course and suck eggs because everything flies out.

I wouldn't add the 2nd layer, it may be frustrating with the blow throughs and chain-outs but trust me, your game will thank you.

I also used zip ties to cinch my chains up and in about 2 links, gives a smaller catching area because stock is obscenely large.

for what it's worth, the girl that I talked to when I called to check for availability told me that the basket sets had only been on the floor for 3 days, and it looks as though everyone that has posted about them has been on the left coast, so these sets may be in the back of trucks heading eastbound as we speak.. err, type and read...

Sounds like that could be the case.

It is kind of day glo yellow...it doesn't look very green in sunlight.
