Don’t panic if you are a regular shopper at Costco.

There’s still time to bulk up if you find one of the items being axed impact your regular grocery list.

Though it’s a pain – it is quite common for items at stores to get phased out in favor of other alternatives.

Changes could be due to vendor agreements and seasonal shifts, but also due to operational factors.

Each retailer like Walmart, Target and others have their own method of indicating that certain items will no longer be carried in its store.

For Costco, the items earmarked were spotted by Eat This Not That with the “death star,” which refers to an asterisk used by the retail giant to highlight discontinuation of an item.

The marking means that at least through the rest of the current season (whatever that may be) the item will not be available in its stores.

Unfortunately, in the worst case, items flagged with the death star disappear to NEVER return.

Here’s a list of ten items that are being “shelved,” so to speak, and that you and your family will have to say goodbye to this fall, per Eat This and Youtube content creator Gina.
