@btonkid12345, I wasn't talking about CostCo; I was talking about retailers generally. My point was that returns increase the cost of doing business, which over time is baked into the price of goods. This is just economics.

Besides, what does the trend of prices at CostCo have to do with this discussion? CostCo's generous return policy is longstanding, so clearly any more recent decrease in the price of its goods is a result of other factors.
