Monday at Costco

In response to 143875: Costco Today, posted by Mary V3 on Tuesday, 24 March 2020, at 9:42 a.m.

We were at Costco on Monday. We arrived at about 9:00 for a 10:00 planned opening. Don't know for sure how many they let in the store on the "first group", but we were about 75th in line and we got in at 9:45. There was a white board out front with what was out of stock. We were able to get everything we wanted (we already had toilet paper, of which Costco was out of stock)and were out the door about 10:45. Checkout lanes were the fastest I have ever seen, with just one person in front of me. Social spacing is being practiced outside, for the most part, but definitely inside at the checkouts. They have tape on the floor to enforce the spacing. Meats were abundant, dairy looked normal, alcohol was normally stocked, fresh produce was picked over, but nothing different than a normal day at Costco. Aside from TP and disinfectant products, nothing seemed really different.

BTW - The weirdest thing was the food court. They only offered hot dogs and pizza. The condiment dispensers were not in use, so you had to ask for condiment packets to go with your hotdog. For some reason they only offered pepperoni or cheese pizza, no combo. There was also a gloved person at the drink dispensers to fill drinks for you.
