I can't afford to shop at Sam's Club

In the news today, a couple of guys in Florida (?) wandered into a Sam's Price Club and conducted a smash and grab in the jewelry section. According to the report they got away with a necklace worth a reported QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS. .... At a SAM's??

I know it's been awhile since I've been in one... But I don't remember any of the folks in line, (like the guy in the ripped, chili stained, Tony Dorsett jersey, or the lady in the purple velour sweat pants and the blue flannel shirt) looking like they were shopping for a special selection of old Sam's family jewels. (wait... that kind of went somewhere strange and necrophilic on me, sorry.)

Besides... It's Sam's. You can't buy just one of anything. You have to buy a case of those necklaces. And, you have to bring your own old cardboard beer flat to carry them home in.

Is a quarter million the member price?

Yea...I've been hearing that Sam's & Costco are the place to buy some high end stuff. Jewelry, TV's, etc...

This is the first time I've heard of them getting ripped off!

I wonder if the retired person at the door marked their stuff as they ran out. Hehe.

Apparently, I need to hang out at Sam's jewelry counter more often. I had no idea their clientele had upgraded so far!
