Yes, the website often mentions that the prices may be different in the warehouse, as well.
If whenever possible, buy from the warehouse as it's generally cheaper (where it's mentioned there is a price difference).

Why are you posting this on SD? It's a question not a deal.

I appreciate you sharing some data, but I assume this thread will be heavily thumbed down because it probably isn't considered a deal.

There are items that are the exact same prices online as they are in store. Surprisingly, there are even items that are the exact same prices on Costco Instacart as they are in store.

agreed, very useful

I have checked a few items in the past and found very few that did actually differ

Also I've seen large items like exercise bikes where the in-store price is something like $100 less than the web site. So I usually check the store before buying off the web site, especially on bulky things.
