Costco, the largest grocery store chain in the United States, is selling more than 500 varieties of dried fruit in its online store.
But some consumers are upset by the low prices.

Read more: Costco shoppers complain about low prices on dry fruitsThe company is offering to lower prices for some items, including frozen or canned fruit, in an effort to compete with rivals such as Kroger, but it is not lowering prices for all items.
Costco says that while the company will try to lower the price of its dry fruit by 30% in the coming weeks, it is unlikely to offer lower prices on all items on the Costco website.
In an email to the ABC News network, Costco spokesman Chris McNeill said the company does not provide prices for dry fruit in any way.
“We have made our intentions clear on this issue, and will continue to do so,” he said.
However, many shoppers are unhappy that Costco has not lowered the prices for dried fruit, especially the items that are frozen or have a low salt content, such as apple, pears and strawberries.
The retailer has a list of products on the website that are only available online.
There is no way for Costco to keep up with demand for dried fruits online, according to one Costco shopper, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitive nature of the situation.
When asked about the prices of dried fruits at Costco, a representative for the company did not respond to an email requesting comment.
A Costco spokeswoman said the online prices for frozen or dried fruit are lower than what is advertised on the store’s website.
But Costco said the changes would not affect the prices customers see when they shop online.
