Costco Makes More Changes During COVID-19 Crisis
Costco Wholesale Club has made a couple more changes to their nationwide retail locations during the coronavirus outbreak. After stating on March 24 that they would offer senior hours for shoppers who are 60 or over, and those with 'physical impairments' twice a week, they are now adding an extra day to that.
According to their website 'On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, Costco warehouses will open from 8 to 9 a.m. for members ages 60 and older, and for those with physical impairments.'
Also, according to the Costco Deals Instagram account, the stores will temporarily only allow no more than two people in the store at a time with one membership. See their post below. And of course, you should always verify this with your local store before heading out to shop.
In addition, the company just announced today that starting Friday, April 3, they will allow no more than two people to enter stores with each membership card.
