Reader Question: Do you know this desk?

July 26th, 2011 · 10 Comments

I’m sure we have all done this:  seen something at Costco that we liked but didn’t immediately buy, and then by the time you decide to buy it, it is gone.  It is one of the sad realities of shopping at Costco though.  It’s even more frustrating when you can see a picture of the product online at Costco.com but none of the details.  Ouch!

I’ve got a reader with just such a problem today.  The hope is that someone here will have the item number or SKU or even the manufacturer information, anything would be helpful.

About 3-4 months ago Costco had sent a coupon mailer for an office desk I was really interested and ended up never purchasing. I no longer have this mailer nor do I know the item number of the desk.

Have any info about this desk?

The only thing I still have is a picture in which it is still featured on the Costco site. The picture is still featured on the site to describe products under home office.

Please let me know if you would be so kind to post this on the site as I would like to know if anyone has purchased this and would be willing to give me the item number or SKU# so I can try to find it and call Costco for it.

If you can help out with any information, it would be great.  I’m going to try looking through the old coupon books to see if I can locate it and make out the information.

    Dear May,
    Finger Furniture out of Texas does have the same furniture that Costco used to carry. However they are selling for a lot more 2400.00 to be exact plus shipping of 17 boxes from Texas to me in NJ. It was just to much for me to afford. I am actually waiting for the buyers at Costco to bring the item back. According to the manufacturer Costco usually rotate their furniture purchases and there are chances they may bring it back without any guarantees.
    We will wait and see.

    Dear Katherine;
    Thank you for the tip. The indeed have them on their site. Called the sales rep at Finger Furniture and they are checking if there is any inventory left.
    Will keep my fingers crossed and hopefully they can ship it to us. Thanks

    We bought it and we love it! And we actually saw the same desk in Finger Furniture in Houston, TX. You might want to give them a call to see if it’s still available.

    You could call the Costco store in Hillsboro, Oregon to see if they have it in stock.

    This is supposedly the largest Costco in the world as they were designed to house a larger amount of furniture. It’s a very large square footage store. It is close to me and I will take a look when I am there this weekend just in case it could be there and let you know.

    The ‘Costco Home’ store in Kirkland, Washington was closed I believe with the last year or so. They sold only furniture and home accessory items.

    You never know, often a customer returns something after along period of time, so it could show up when you least expect it!

    Good luck!

    I have had similar experiences. Even had a case where I ordered an item, it was enroute but then the information disappeared from the Costco.com website even before it arrived. My understanding is that this is not unusual for items that are not regularly stocked, i.e. they purchase a certain number of items and when they are sold they remove the information to avoid orders that they will not be able to fill…. so I doubt you will have any luck trying to order an item that was listed and removed some time back.

    Dear Carla and Dear Kimberly;

    Wanted to thank you immensely for helping me out on posting this request for Carla to actually being able to find the item.

    Unfortunatelly the manufacturer is not going to carry it for now. There is a chance they will bring it back in another 6-8weeks without any guarantees.

    Thanks for the effort. Really appreciate it.
