Costco shopper who ignores mask requirement is booted from store by employee, viral video shows


Perfect example of what’s happening out there. I saw a similar video (from TUG?) about a shopper at Gelson’s in Southern California.

Gotta luv this:

(Another Reddit user claimed it was “downvoted into oblivion,” prompting the shopper to remove it.)

And total props go to the Warehouse Manager who did this. He was poilte, respectful, and correct in his behavior. You can protest all you want, but at the end of the day, Costco is NOT a public place. It's a private membership warehouse, and you pay for the privilege of shopping there. If you aren't going to follow the rules, and you're endangering other shoppers who ARE following the rules, you don't belong. "You'll have to leave now." :thumbup:

I know Costco will be happy to refund this man's membership fee so he can shop elsewhere.

I guess he can go to walmart without a mask

Walmart is having a record sales quarter

I feel the manager was correct in his action. Costco is a private membership warehouse. The Costco mask rule is posted in our store where the general public can read the requirement to enter the warehouse.

Please take care of your spouse and please support her decision..

FWIW, I ordered several times from Walmart since March for the first time...ever. The reason? Amazon couldn't deliver quickly enough, and Walmart could. Haven't ordered from Walmart since and not sure I will again, but it's always an option.
Dh ordered a couple of things from Walmart as well as they were the only ones who had the product we needed. I don't shop at any Walton store. Wasn't my choice.

Can we return to discussing Costco for a minute?

We found this Queso at our local warehouse last weekend. Goes great with the Costco white/yellow corn chips. Pro tip: heat the chips for 30 seconds in the microwave - it’s just like I remember at our local Mexican restaurants.

I never think I like Queso until I have really good Queso. :D

Still some shortage on bacon. Just sayin'. Rick has a certain kind he likes, nothing else will do, and of course they haven't had it for about 4 months. Some of the bacon lacks flavor. He has been buying the pre-cooked kind, which he says is just okay.

Our local Costco sells the VERY BEST, our local Falls Brand bacon. I don't know if they distribute it out of the area but it's worth looking for.
I wanted the Vanity Fair deluxe 3ply napkins. They're out. And have stopped stocking gallon jugs of red wine vinegar. Of course no antibiotic spray or wipes for months.
But praise be, they had IPA cases and bottled margaritas. I can at least drown my sorrows.

I think Costco tends to sell regional brands for things like this, when they can meet the volume demand. They tend not to go too local, because the brand may not be made in the quantities needed. Not sure what the benchmark volumes are.

Went to Costco the other day and decided to grab a hot dog for the first time since the pandemic started. Guess what? No onions, no relish, and cold soda in a can. They did offer mustard or ketchup but that's it.

The seating area has been removed (likely the same everywhere) so you basically take your hot dog and cold soda as "take out". I ate it in the car and it was excellent, but I really miss the onions and relish.

My guess is that onions and relish aren't available because of the Covid situation (although they could offer individual cup servings).

Costco must be doing something right; their stock closed today @ $332 per share!

There margaritas is a good smooth drink and an awesome price. They cannot keep the strawberry margaritas in stock. L.OL
