Thanks everyone for the responses so far, and some additional comments ...

Bernhard, unfortunately I have no photo. I was berating myself for not having a 
camera with me until my wife reminded me that it's not something I would 
ordinarily take along while shopping at a warehouse club ... 

Jani, thanks for the links. There are some impressive cultivars out there. I
didn't see any that looked exactly like what I saw, but of course time has
passed and things are usually more impressive in our memories. 

Marek, Anton, and Kyle mentioned the foliage - I don't know what the foliage
looked like, either. They had only the inflorescences on their stems in an
arrangement. The stems were easily 30+ cm (1 foot) long, not including any of
the spathe which added at least another 10+ cm (4 inches or so). 

That was the other impressive thing - the pink/purple/red/black cultivars I've
seen have had smaller inflorescences on smaller plants, which is why I said
they reminded me of rehmanii. The size and form of these reminded me of some of
the bigger yellow cultivars like "Flame".
