During Simply Buckhead’s cover shoot with Clark Howard at the Dunwoody Costco, the Buckhead-based consumer advisor attracted quite a bit of attention. In between shots, fans asked him for hugs, autographs and shopping advice. “The battery multipacks here are the best deal in town,” he told one woman who had already put a simple pack of AAs in her cart (she promptly switched them for the ones Howard suggested). “This GPS system is an amazing deal,” he told someone else, then snatched up five for his family as if to illustrate his point. Enthusiastic, down-to-earth and always on the hunt for a good bargain, Howard was a hit with the Costco crowd— and our magazine’s staffers. -Allison Weiss Entrekin Cover photo shot on location at the Dunwoody Costco by Sara Hanna Photography – www.SaraHanna.com
