This is the only Costco that I know of that doesn't allow you a way to get directly to the gas lines after shopping. You have to go out to the street and wait through about 3 signals before you can come back around to the gas lines...it's ridiculous-they should make it more convenient for their customers rather than more difficult by blocking people from coming in after shopping!
I'm not a big fan of this Smart & Final. It's a cramped store, hard to find things, and there's not all that much stock to begin with. Parking is tight, too.
Concenient spot next to a trolley stop and in an apartment facility. They have essentials but the prices are a bit higher than average.
