I believe Costco also has offered (and maybe still does) an anodized aluminum line of cookware. It would be on a par with other premium brands.
Years ago, I bought a set of Kirkland clad SS cookware and it has been outstanding! I haven't seen another clad SS set there since then.
i bought 2 sets of tri-ply SST set from sam's club that i believe is actually tramontina; one for myself, and one for mom.
i haven't seen tri-ply sets in sam's or costco in a very, very long time... glad i purchased them when i did.
