Things are changing quickly at Costco, I have been keeping you guys updated as much as I can.
Figured it was a good time to put it all together, update a little bit more and add in some pictures also.
First thing is the new seniors hours, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Make sure to check your local store for their hours. It’s for over 60 only and physical disabilities, to give them some time to shop when it’s a lot quieter. The member has to be paying.
The pharmacy is now only in giving out one month of prescriptions. You can also get prescriptions delivered now too.
The stores are limiting the number of guests in at one time – most stores its 250 at one time. When 10 or 20 leave they let in another 10 or 20.
Only 2 people can go in on one membership now too. So plan accordingly before going to the store.
Front Line workers can get quick access to the store – make sure to read all of the requirements and rules etc.
Make sure you grab a cart from outside, and have your membership card ready to show. When you’re waiting in line, you’re kept six feet apart as you can see in the picture.
Only every second til is open to checkout and you are spaced out there too. You hold out your membership card to be scanned, and they just eye your receipt at the door.
The optical and hearing aid departments are closed.
The food court is to go only, no more tables. The menu is now only full pizzas, hot dogs and drinks.
Toilet paper has been a limit of one per membership for a while, don’t be surprised to see more limits too on other hot items.
They are not accepting returns on toilet paper, paper towels, Lysol wipes, Lysol, rice and water. You’ll see signs like above near those items.
I will keep updating as we go too.
There are probably more differences from province to province, let me know what you’re seeing.
And don’t forget to thank them for what they’re doing – they have been unbelievably organized, it’s pretty amazing!!!
A huge thank you from me to every single Costco employee, and to all of those delivering to the stores and getting everything organized. And to the producers of the food also.
Thank you for keeping us fed!
