Costco Limiting Customers In Store at One Time
Costco is limiting the number of customers in their stores at one time.
The increase in shoppers since the coronavirus has Costco making changes. "We’ve taken steps to control the number of members in our warehouses and asked members and employees practice social distancing, said Costco CEO, Craig Jelinek, in a statement. "Limits have been implemented on certain items to help ensure more members are able to access the merchandise they want and need."
Some services are also being reduced in stores, including sampling. Sanitizing protocols are being increased, focusing on shopping car handles, merchandise shelves, front-end belts and registers.
"We thank you for your patience and cooperation," said Jelinek. "As new developments occur, be assured we are committed to taking care of our members and employees and to our mission of providing low prices, quality merchandise and exceptional service."
