^My husband's co-worker had the same problem - they bought one from Costco and the wife said she couldn't handle the smell so they returned it. Mine was no problem though - we opened it and slept on it the same night, so I'm not sure why one was bad and the other wasn't? I'm happy with mine. We bought it a while ago so I can't remember how much it was, but I think it was less than $500 (which is substantially cheaper than Brookstone's).
