  1. My favorite drink is Sanpellegrino. I always went to Costco for my favorite beverage and other items. Well, to my dismay, Costco near Glen Allen, VA stopped selling this all-in-favor-of beverage. I haven't stepped foot in Costco since then. CVS sells them singly and if you don't call to see when the shipment is coming in and arrive early, all the Sanpellegrino's are gone; just like that. We, CVS patrons were quite upset last week when we learned the warehouse ran out of stock of Sanpellegrino. Why did you stop selling the best beverage in the world? I've even advertised the drink with Costco on Face Book! Not anymore.

  2. On December 22 at 3:30 a vendor employee left her badge at home. When went to the office about a new badge the day before COSTCO's payday she was told by the lady in the office that it was $2 a badge. The employee replied but I don't work for COSTCO and the office lady went and got the manager, and apparently told her the employee was disrespectful. When the employee inquired how was she disrespectful the manager could say and went on and on about the badge. The employee offred to go home and get her badge, since it was a problem blown out of proportion and the manager says that the employee disrespected her store. I thought that was COSTCO's store. This incident will be seen worldwide. All the employee did was offer to go home and get her badge instead of paying $2.

  4. To Whom:
    In the past year I have noted that the frozen blueberries have risen 6.00. I sure feel that is a bit much..In speaking with some of my friends they have noticed the large rise in the food products they normally purchased..and like myself we are not purchasing those items any more. I fear you are going to price yourself out of business. It may just be cheaper to buy at Wal-martand theblueberries are not very good quality anyway. More like shoeleather.

  11. I am so disappointed in my local Manassas Costco I may never shop there again. I am a local small businessman and last year was asked to help with a donation to the miracle children's network and I gave $300.00. I went back to them this week and asked for help with a donation for a members family that had their five year old daughter die form a brain tumor. I was looking for plate napkins ETC they gave me $25.00 and I was told that was all that was approved! Thanks Costco you all really stepped up this time for the community that serves you well!I ended up spending $200.00 on the items I needed so that's $200.00 less for this family in need.

    1. I'm having issues with them as a small business owner as well. It's not related to your issue, but I feel completely disrespected.

      I called to get an end of year statement to do my taxes and they refused to give it to me because I'm not the IRS.

      I have news for them, the IRS doesn't do my taxes.

      Yes, I have my reciepts, but I was just going to use it as a double check. I can view two years order history on such sites as Amazon, Dell, most banks, credit cards (which of course Costco does not accept). I really think they're trying to hide something. I may contact an attorney since I have 4 days to do my taxes and no reciept for a Nikon DSLR that I ordered online in February (I should check my e-mail). Anyway, I just don't like the games.

    2. So for your lack of attention to your books you want Costco to remember and look up everytime you frequented their establishment. Do you offer this to your customers in your small business? Get an accountant thats what they get paid to do.

  12. I find costco unwilling to suppor non profit groups such as the Boyscouts. I was at Fredericksburg VA store to purchase items for myself and for the troop my son is apart of. I am the treasuer for the troop and wanted to write a check from the scouts account in which I was told they would not except becuase my name was not the check. I am only 1 of 2 who can write checks on this acccount. So I then inquired about a tax excempt card for the troop and since the individual troops do not recieved separate tax number it goes under the district I would not be able to recieve a card either. The person(s) from the district would have to make the purchases since the tax number is in thier name. I find Costco answers and unwillness to help a disgrace. I will no longer use Costco. The troop and I have a Sam's card for 15+ years and so they will continue to get my business and the troops. Now I have good reason for the extra time or miles it will take me to make my purchases at Sam's. Thank you Sam's Club

    2. Costco cannot accept a check from someone whos name is not on it. For all they know you could have found the check and tried to use it. Believe me this happens all the time, you would be amazed at all the fraud people comit at costco. As for the tax exemption, all you need is to bring it to membership so it can be put on file. until you do that they would be on hook for the taxes if there was an audit.

  13. At the Fort Oglethorpe Ga. Costco we are so limited on so many things.To get what you need you also will have to have a Sam's Club card to finish your shopping.And they don't care. I was interest in some Bakers & Chef'steam table aluminum pans and lids. They carry only one large steam table pan and one half size,No Lids. So I ask as I checked out why they didn't carry more things like this.
    They said I Don't Know "Good Answer"But I went to Sam Club and they did care. Now do you have a answer? I don't know that I will renew this card again.

  14. To whom it may concern:

    I had my first visit with Costco in December when I was visiting In California. I loved it. I was very impressed with the value of the items you sell. It was very busy in the store but the checkout went smoothly. My question is why is there no Costco Stores in Southern Ohio? My home is located in Vinton County, It is a small community with a big heart. I am sure if you looked at this Area of Appalachia Ohio you would find that it has a high unemployment rate but If you looked a little closer you would find that It also has a very diverse and talented work force. Your only competition in the area would be from some Super Wal-Mart in Jackson, Athens and Chillicothe. There is also a wide choice of building sites in both Vinton and Jackson county. I am sure there are a lot of decisions to be made in deciding where to put a Costco. I just thought Southen Ohio might be one place you might consider.

  16. I shop at the Bedford Park location in Chicago. I average a trip to Costco twice monthly. I have a love/hate relationship with you. Once again you have me hooked on an item and you then stop stocking it! CHICKEN WINGS -- why??? I asked one of the butchers what happened and was told they are constantly hearing numerous requests for wings and have asked management to again stock chicken wings, but have not been successful. Does corporate read/respond to our concerns? I'm also going to call your 800 Call Center number. I hope I haven't entered the 'black hole' of no response!!!

  17. I'm so upset with costco in Fremont Ca. On December 17, 2011 I went to Costco to do my shopping. You see every 3 to 4 months I go shopping for my household. At these times I normally spend anywhere from $500.00 to $650.00 every 3 to 4 months. I will spend at least $350.00 to $400.00 at Costco, then will go around the block to Walmart and spend about $200.00 to $250.00. This way I do not have to shop until the next 3 to 4 months. Yes I will have to go to Safeway to get like bread, milk, eggs etc... but for the most parts, my household is set and my cabinets and closets are full and I don't have to shop once a week or twice a month. The way I like to shop, I consider myself a smart shopper and stock up for a few months. I hate shopping so I try to do it all at one time and to me it is easy on myself. Everyone knows that if you do not have a membership card or if you don't pay your dues, you are not leaving out of there with nothing!!! When I was at the checkout counter, I was told that my membership dues where due and it was due in Sept, 2011 so I paid it alone with my stuff and I also paid for some stuff for my niece. Today I sent my daughter to Costco to do some shopping for me and at that time they told my daughter that my membership was due since last Sept. 2011. Their records show that I have not been there since Aug. 2011, which they are dead wrong!!! Normally I would pay with my card, but that day I had just took closed my account at Union Bank because they had closed my saving account because I went in it too many times that month, I think I had went in around 4 times. You see I had 2 accounts open at 2 diffrent banks. A saving and checking at both,with Union Bank I would transfer money from my saving and put it in my checking to cover whatever I am using my card for. My other account is at a credit union where I have a checking and saving there too. At my credit union is where I pay bills with and just save. So on Dec. 17, 2011 I received a letter from Union Bank telling me they had close my saving account I was mad and I decided to go to that Bank on my way to Costco and close out my checking whick had $1,275.62 in it. I just said to myself that on Monday I would put that money in my credit union. So after I left the Bank I went to costco and did my shopping and when I was checking out, I was told about my membership dues, so I paid it. Today when my daughter was checking out again they tell my her my dues was due so she paid it with my card. She called me to tell me the extra she had to pay and I told her to go back in that store and let them know that I paid it already and gave them the date I paid it. Now I am the type of person that I don't keep grocery recipt because I don't really need to keep recipt like that, but I remeber that date because my niece took me and was running late for her dad's work X-Mas party which was being held on Sat. Dec. 17 in San Francisco. Costco Manager told me that their records showed that the last time I was in their store was in Aug.2011. So they would not do anything for me. I have been shopping like this at Costco for the past 8 yrs. Since I have been living here and it just seem like the smarter way to shop for me and my daughter. Costco I am soooooooooo upset with you about this issue and hope on Monday I can contact the corporate office and get this taken care of.

  18. I called the corporate office to get a copy of my year end statement so I can make sure I had all my reciepts for my taxes and they refuse to give it to me because I'm not the IRS.

    I have news for them, the IRS is not doing my taxes.

    I can view the last two years of transactions on Dell, Amazon, my bank, my credit card, all other websites that I order from - except for Costco. They are hiding something and I think whatever they're doing may be fraudulent so I'm going to research and contact the local news and if I have to an attorney.

  19. I went to Costco today and bought a camera for my daughter. As I was waiting in line, a women with a hand-held scanner came up and asked me for my card and then scanned the camera. She left without saying anything like why she needed to do this. I assumed it was some promotion for their Executive Card but she just looked at me and left. When i was walking out of the store, the person who reviews the items and receipt asked me who the camera was for and then after looking at the receipt said "Are you kidding me?" then commented about how i could have bought a flat-screen TV for that money. While I enjoy good-natured bantering, I felt that this was out-of-line. I suggest customer service training at the San Leandro, CA store!

  20. I shopped at the Costco In Perimeter ( GA ). I applaud Costco for stocking more organize product. Please do consider stocking nitrate free deli meat e.g Applegate farm product. It order to get nitrate free deli meat, I will need to get it in Whole foods. Since you do carry nitrate free sausages, please consider stocking up nitrate free deli meat. The dame customer that buys nitrate free sausages will also be buying nitrate free deli meat for their family. Thank you. I love the service both at Costco Perimeter and Costco Brookhaven!

  22. Scrambled around to see if the Kirkland dry dog food I purchased was part of the national pet food recall in 39 states (so far). Diamond pet foods has a web page that lists the affected Diamond and Kirkland dog food products (which are among many others) and, thankfully, the bag I purchased wasn't among those contaminated with salmonella.

    From what I've read, it's inexcusable and completely unacceptable to me that the same S.C. plant was involved in this second round of contamination. Contamination occurred at this same plant before, apparently. And now it's happened again.

    I expect Costco to maintain high standards for quality control, health and safety. As such, I expect the relationship with this plant to be abandoned.

  23. On or about April 10, 2012 I went shopping at your Lacey, Washington Costco. After an hour of shopping and loading my groceries at the check out, the employee informed me I was late with my annual payment. I informed the clerk that I didn't have the $110 at that time. I was told that I was "technically not a member and he could not ring up my food."

    I have been with Costco for 20 years and never has this happened before; neither have I been late with my payment, nor have I ever been told I was not a member. I went to customer service where I explained how long I had been with them and could they please give me a pass just this once; I was told that they could not.

    My income has changed, as has many American's. I am a victim of the layoffs and have only part time work at this time. I was shopping with food stamps which I now receive because I have lost over half of my income. I was so ashamed and humiliated when I was told I wasn't a member, after 20 years of being a member, nothing could be done to help my family get our needed groceries. I don't understand why Costco wouldn't be more understanding in today's economy and for a long-time customer.

  24. for your human resources department.
    I have been to your west valley Utah store I would like to say almost all of your employees were very friend and helpful but I'm sad to say you have a real problem in your bakery department and i was told her name was Chantalle an assistant manager in that department. I ordered a cake and was told it wasn't ready, the morning employee apologized and pointed out she was having to clean and sanitized the kitchen before she could make anything as the night crew left a mess a young male employee told me about the work ethics of this Ass. manager and he further told me other sad things that the other employees must endure I took this information to a manager up front I'm not sure I was taken seriously, now as a consumer but I pay for your store membership and It was only one cake but I wonder how many more cake orders will go unfilled i had to go to Safeway for our cake...they were prompt and did it fast...while i watched...I sure hope somebody looks into this problem but I'm pretty sure it will get swept under the rug

  29. America The Beautiful, I was at Costco. ( Costco.com ) I had seen Four Employees walking through the parking lot. All Four are taking turns turning over one cart just to empty the trash into the Brand new,"Eco-Friendly" plant life in the brand new Auto Mall Row Fremont,California. I looked around and noticed they dumped all the trash in every cart through-out the whole lot. litter every foot and a half of the whole lot, the wind was blowinng , Litter is blowing every where. They would look at the cart then decided who will over turn it into the "Eco-Friendly" plant life . one cart at a time . Right then I knew Costco in Auto Mall , Fremont, California. is not getting my money. , If you are bored and wish to show your " 4th of July " thankfulness to Our homeland, go to Costco and watch the America the Beautiful show every night closing time...

  34. I am probably silly for making this comment but here go's.
    There is a company named "Medtech Products, Inc. Jackson, WY 83001 USA. They have made a product for many years that we use and like better that all the rest, in fact they make the only "good" ones we have ever found. The product is "ezo denture cushions". We do not know the story on why they are gone now but if I had the funds to buy this company and get them started again, I would! There are alot of older American's that used this product and really are very disappointed that they are gone now. It is the old story, "If it is good, it usally goes away". Hoping Costco will take a look at this and see if it is possible to save this company.We love Costco. Just got a great vaccuum there.Most of all we love our country and are so sad to see company's going under. Thank you

  35. If non members can buy prescriptions from Costco, you need to have it posted in plain sight (which you don't at all) that you do not accept checks. I have been a member for 17 yrs. and just let my membership laps due to the bad treatment at your Superior, Co store. Guess I'll move my prescriptions now because of this. When you make it difficult and inconvenient then it's time to say asta la vista and take my business somewhere else, Target and Walmart come to mind. I don't get this kind of treatment there. They absolutely treat people better on there worst day than you treat customers! When I was in retail customers meant cha Ching.

  36. This morning (8/25/12) I was out and about running errands before the storm hits (Issac) and decided that I would stop by my local Costco located at 7171 Cypress Lake Drive
    Fort Myers FL 33907-6521 (239) 415-3806 to fill up my car. As you can imagine the lines for gas were long but I didn't mind; I was just glad my husband wasn't with me because he doesn't have the patience to wait. Anyway, I was third in line and thought I had gotten there quick enough. I looked in my rear view mirro and saw the person behind me pointing to a vacant pump in the next lane that no one could get to, no one but me that is, because of the individual pumping gas was taking a while. I decided that OK maybe I should go around the person pumping gas to keep the lines moving quicker. To my surprise, the gas pump attendant came up to me in a tone of voice unbecoming a sales person and said, "you can do that and I'm can't allow you to pump gas!" I said excuse me and he said you heard "you cut in line and I'm going to allow you to pump gas!" I said, I didn't move because I want to beat anyone to the pump; I moved to keep the lines moving faster. Honestly, I am 59 years of age and in all of my life shopping (and I've done alot of shopping) I've never had any sales person be as rude as he was. I asked to speak to his supervisor, and that was even worse (LOL). Now, they are both yelling at me as if I were a 10 year old child. And of course, at this point, I'm yelling back. My husband loves Costco, and I think from now He'll be the only one from this family shopping there.
    I thought this might be an isolated incident because people tend to panic when they think doom (like a hurricane) is about to happen, but after reading other comments posted regarding Costcoc employees, I think Costco may need to rethink their customer service skills training. Unless of course, it is the corporations intentions to have employees that don't give a s#$& if customers return to shop at their stores!!!

  39. My Letter to Costco

    To Whom it may concern,

    I have been a loyal Costco customer for several years now. I spend a considerable amount at Costco each month including business supplies and gadgets. Is it true what I am reading on the net that Costco has supported the Democratic party 99% of Costcos donations?

    I will research this further, I sure hope this is false information; if it is not it will be the last time that I EVER shop at Costco.
    Sams Club here I come........
    I am also a very influential convincing person with many friends that shop at Costco, believe me when I tell you that it will be part of my life long campaign to take them with me. Don't you realize that the people that spend the most at your business are probably not the Liberals which encompasses SOOOOO many people on free-bee's. Good luck in the future!

    #2. Costco doesn't need people that are going to threaten to stop shopping at Costco every-time things don't turn out "their" way! Hopefully your never in the "FREE-BEE" predicament.

  44. I am an executive member at Costco. I appreciate the opportunity of being a member and I also have car insurance through Costco. Generally, I am satisfied with the service; however, I have experienced multiple mistreatment by Costco employees, cashiers, photo dept., or even the parking help, and baggers at the cashier registers. Last week, I had a bagger ignoring to move other empty shopping carts to pay for my products; in the end, she appeared angry, and she grabbed an electronic box and a pastry, and she dropped it back on my cart after I Paid the cashier. I would not want any other person dropping my property, which I had already paid for, that appeared to be angry and taking out on a customer. I informed the supervisor, and I told him that I was sure that they had cameras and they could review it for credibility. And, on 11/26/12, a male cashier appeared upset and he would not answer my question, because he was so busy talking with the customer after my turn, and when I asked him again, he snapped at me, and he still would not answer my question about the coupons on three sale items, and I was ridiculed by him, and he was discussing with the other customer his version and I got pressure from that other customer in addition to the rude cashier. I asked cashier to call a supervisor, and while delaying and continuing to discuss with other customer, the manager approached the cashier, and I told him that I wanted to cancel what that cashier did and if I would pay to another cashier who would treat me with the respect that I gave Costo generally. The manager was very polite and he rang up every item, i.e., television, blood pressure monitor, Ensure, Medical Disposable Gloves, etc...almost $400.00 in one visit alone, but, I usually buy everthing at Costco, from food, supplies, gasoline, car insurance, etc.... So, how can Costco not counsel their employees after someone files a complaint, would puzzle me because we are the people who shop at their warehouse. So, furthermore, I recommend that Costco take more serious its customers and counsel its employees to leave their prejudice beliefs, their anger, and other personal problems outside of Costco Warehouse, because if some of their employees are experiencing those above excuses and they expect the customers to feel sorry for them, we are not sympathetic of cruelty behavior, since we are Americans first, and we are of different cultures people who have jobs, and we work hard, and we have our own personal problems, so we do not accept any type of ABUSE, DISCRIMINATION, HARASSMENT, OR ENVY because we are not working rather, we are shopping, and Costco employees should be grateful that they have jobs, when there are many other people who do not have jobs and they deserve better, than employees who are at Costco for the wrong reasons complaining because they are at work, resenting the job.

  45. I'm so upset that Costo does not post my comments, when I made an objective remark about them, and I was not critical. So, why does Costco only posts what it wants and not what the commentator writes? Now, I see why there are so many prejudice employees at Costco.

  46. Generally, I'm pleased with the items I'm able to purchase at our local Costco in Charleston, SC but in the last six months the quality of some of the produce being sold, particularly fruit (at full price too) is very disappointing. It is overripe or rotten, smells and has visible mold. Pretty disappointing from a company that prides itself on quality.

    I also wish they would sell more reduced and low sodium items for people with dietary restrictions.

  47. Can Someone at COSTCO please explain why COSTCO stopped selling item number 164803 (Arcan Professional-Quality Aluminum Floor Jack — 3-Ton). Many people are looking for this item on-line and wondering why COSTCO stopped selling it. I have requested this item several times from the branch managers in Lewisville, TX. They said many people had asked for this item, but it does not show in the warehouse, so they cannot place an order for this item. There are many items COSTCO bring only one time or twice and then stop selling them. For instance: "Organic MASHUPS SQUEEZABLE FRUIT" is one of the items that COSTCO stopped bringing. When we approached the manager and ask for this item, he said it wasn't selling good, so COSTCO stopped stocking it. When for the first time we purchased a box of "Organic MASHUPS SQUEEZABLE FRUIT" in COSTCO a full pallet of this item was on the store floor. My children loved it after trying the "Organic MASHUPS SQUEEZABLE FRUIT". Few days later we went back to COSTCO to purchase more boxes of this item and they were sold out. So if this item wasn’t sold well why a whole pallet was sold out within less than 5 days? We love COSTCO. Their prices are great. I hope someone from COSTCO would read my comment and hopefully start selling the items again. You may googol the first item (Arcan Professional-Quality Aluminum Floor Jack — 3-Ton) and you will see how many people are saying they bought it from the COSTCO and it is a great jack. COSTCO has started bringing Arcan Professional 3.5 Tons Floor Jack, but it is not the Aluminum version of it which makes it very heavy.

  48. Our Executive Gold Star Membership Annual Renewal Notice just came in the mail. We have been members for years, and will NO LONGER, because of the radical co-founder Jim Sinegal support of the most radical president in the history of America. I call for everyone that believes in our great country to drop their membership ASAP. Since he believes in the Socalist party, and I believe in the free party, thus I'm free from Costco how about you!!!!!

  50. Went shopping at Costco couple days ago and needed to go to the ladies room, and a cashier yelled at me, you can't take that cart with you, so loud everyone in the store stopped and looked like I had stolen something. And the girl that was standing cashier said the same thing. I needed to buggy to lean on and I only had a 35 pound bag of dogfood in the cart. That would be pretty hard to put in my purse. I was shocked and embarrassed how rude and ugly the two were. I told them to call the manager, and they never did. As a matter of fact I never could find a manager when asking for one. They treat their customers like crap.

  51. Lady in front of me at register check out was trying to pay for her items, and the man cashier, took her check and said let me see your driver's lic., she showed it to him and he yelled as loud as he could, need a check approval, screaming to top of his lungs. The elderly lady who was shaking, Parkinsons I think, was embarrassed the cashier kept yelling out, check approval. He told her to stand aside, while he waited for manager, and all her items still laying on the counter, wanted me to check out. I wouldn't do it. I told him you haven't let her finish and I could not get my purse on the counter to pay anyway. The cashier got mad. I was not going to let the cashier shove a little old lady out of the way trying to pay for her merchandise. Rude, disrespectful, ugly cashiers at Costco. They done me almost the same way. Won't even let you put your money in your purse before there pushing you out of the way, to get to the next person in line. Greedy nasty.

  52. I've just learned of a new smartphone app called "ShopKicks". This app lets you collect points at retailers registered with their service including Costco, Target, Walmart and many others.

    I began using it recently and find that there is no wireless connection in Costco stores on which this app will work. My 3G and 4G signals do not connect in any of their warehouses. Additionally, they do not have WiFi available in their buildings for customers as many other retailers provide.

    ShopKicks is used to get customers into a store while collecting points for entering and scanning product UPC codes inside the store. This is a win/win for the retailer as well as the customer. The app worked fine in Target and Walmart today but NOT Costco.

    My wife and I were doing our monthly shopping and would have purchased more if we would have been able to scan the products we normally wouldn't purchase for the points we were collecting. These items were like a 40oz box of Wheat Thins Original as well as Quicken 2013.

    It was obvious that other customers had tried scanning products in the store as well because other items that could have been scanned were left on shelves with the UPC code pointing toward the isle.

    Setting up an open, shared WiFi access point isn't difficult and costs very little but could produce additional revenue for Costco warehouses as more and more iPhone, Android phones begin using this app to collect points to earn rewards from their scanning and shopping at ShopKicks retailers.

    I hope corporate reads this comment and implements my suggestions. Thanks. We love Costco and will still shop there but won't be spending additional money on items we would otherwise not buy as we would if we could scan them for our app points.

  53. Today I received a Costco 30-Day Free Membership with "Strong Values" suggested, which we will not employ.
    Years ago, my wife and I were card carrying members. We were, and still are prevailing members of BJs Wholesale.
    The point why we are no longer card membership of Costco Wholesale, breaks down to one reason ( your shopping hours are very limited). Closing at 6:00PM is ludicrous! Most of the populace leaving work, dont' have a likelihood to shop. At leas your opposition BJ's Wholesale Club stays open up until 10:00PM.
    We always found the caliber, and expense of your products comparable with the other storehouses.
    To improve the volume of clinentele, I would urge extending your store hours, so we all have a chance to stock up. This way you should develop more profit, and happier patrons

    Thanks,

    Chuck

  61. It does not matter what my name is -THERE'S SERIOUS PROBLEM! COMPLAINT
    This is a serious problem and business owners and managers do not have time for this crap when dealing with their business or expense reports. I work for a company to where my District Manager is required to present an expense report every month. He oversee different states and we shop at Costco consistently and every time he lose a receipt I have to call to obtain it. What really irks me the most is, every time I need to retrieve a receipt I am asked for the membership number which is fine, but what we bought during that time of purchase is ridiculous and obscured. We buy everything at Costco and to ask a stupid question like that is unbecoming of this company in trying to obtain a receipt for business owners and non business owners to go though when they have spent thousands of dollars. I call the corporate office and left my name and as a matter of fact on the phone right now regarding this is and this is just as bad. The lady called me back and as I am explaining she cut me off and transferred me. I know I am not the only on going through this and I am getting sick of it every month. Just spoke with another young lady will not say there name but what happened to customer service, damage control of losing a customer or customers or problems solving to resolve these types of issues. Not happy with this company right now at all. We the community and businesses are the one that keeps this company running and in business. Listen to what your customers are saying or complaining about.

    I just this morning submitted a job app. for my local Costco. Because I'm physically disabled (loss left leg to a
    un-insured DUID driver) I was hoping to get a part time job at Costco to supplement my SSID. When I went to speak to the manager of my local Costco to explain my position, needing to have a bar stool type chair available to occasionally sit down to ease some pain while STILL doing my job, I was told that Costco DOES NOT HIRE ANYONE that needs to sit down even occasionally as I need to. The Asst. Manger, named Russ then had the nerve to brag to me saying they actually have 2 deaf people working there.So I guess if you're physically disabled, Costco doesn't want to hire you. And to think I'm a dues paying member of a business that post by their front door that they are a EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER. I guess you are, but not if you're disabled.

    1. What they are doing to you may be illegal and with the employees that work there Costco frequently ignores labor laws. There is an Employee Agreement hand book, but it is almost always used against the employee by management, and not for the benefit of the employee.

  83. Costco's new avocados from Brazil are not good. They are stringy with fibers running through them. They were also brown inside as though they were refrigerated too long before getting to their store. I asked an avocado grower once why some had the fiber strings in them and they said because the trees are not taken care of properly. I am extremely familiar with avocados as I eat them daily. I understand the many varieties as well as qualities and these new Brazilian avocados are not good. Unfortunately, Costco is not buying them from California anymore. Isn't it sad that we can't even get US grown avocados anymore unless going to a farmer's market? Most stores carry the cheaper avocados now from countries that don't take care of their trees. I won't be buying Costco avocados anymore.

  84. Costco has a business model that runs itself. The warehouse I worked in had an alcoholic, BOB KYLE supervising foods. Kyle got fired from the grocery store as a manager for drinking on the job and he fell into Costco. Bob later got promoted to Eastern Regional Marketing Manager and if he is alive is probably due for a liver transplant. Being on the road traveling he can now drink all he wants while on the job. Like I said the business runs itself. ED PELLITIER was our party all night Merchandising Manager. He would brag that he had not slept in two days and often stated during business hours that he wanted to to go to Desert Storm so he could kill someone. His wife was the warehouse pharmacist and if Ed was not a coke addict was certainly being pumped with stimulants provided by his wife to keep him going during the day. The Membership Manager who was fired for stealing money, also cheated several of his own people by not paying them for the hours they worked. The Warehouse Manager, DAVE BRUNNER, was a fired Price-Club warehouse manager and was later relieved of this Costco warehouse. He now manages a warehouse out in California, but I don’t know how he puled that off. The Receiving Manager was a hot head and quite capable of potentially clearing the place with automatic gun fire. The assistant warehouse manager TOM DALEY couldn’t even stay out of trouble but passed it off onto Kyle. The both of them were in the car going down the road drunk with Tom at the wheel. When they were pulled over Kyle took the DWI for him and spent the next few weekends doing time. We all knew what was going on and the managers were covering for Kyle keeping it quiet that he was in the weekend lock-up. When you are in jail and suppose to be at work at Costco you automatically loose your job and a double standard had to be established. At the top of this scrap heap was a Harvard educated senior vice-president whose first name was Richard was charged with insider trading after selling his Costco shares when he knew the stock was about to tank before the general public knew. A northeastern liberal who thought he was entitled. He graduated in the top 10% of his class, and never learned anything. Yelling and general discord was the order of any work day with management believing that when you place people under stress and pressure you get more work out of them. They also quit before the company has to pay the higher hourly rate and preserving a larger bonus for managers for keeping payroll low. Brookfield, Connecticut warehouse 1992. Yea, Costco is a great company unless you have worked there.

His book is the Best Seller on Amazon at the moment, and Hillary Clintons book is tanking. You are still selling Hillary Clintons book however. Do you see a problem with this picture yet. How dare you practice Censorship in A Free America. How dare some corporate head decide what is good for your consumers and what is harmful to them. How dare you assume you can pick a political side and use your store as a platform for your political point of views. Or as a tool for the Government. How dare you.

  91. Costco Management:
    On July 5 we went shopping at your Coeur D’Alene Idaho store. We had a great deal of difficulty in finding many of the items which eventually made up our $700+ purchase. We were continually looking for staff members for directions to the new locations of products which we have been purchasing, as Costco members, for the past 26 years. We normally appreciate the many good and fairly priced products offered for sale. Our main attraction to Costco is that for the past 26 years we have been able to go to any Costco store and easily find those items we were shopping for. All stores change product lines and individual items from time to time but Costco has generally had the same product zone layout. During the time that we have had our membership we also ran several small businesses and have spent many tens of thousands of dollars at Costco stores.
    We shopped at WalMart and occasionally Sam’s Club as well. The WalMart “White Hats” decided to start rearranging their stores as though it was an ongoing game of musical chairs and also decided to fill their otherwise adequate aisles with massive traffic stopping displays. We called the company and were told, that although they had received thousands of similar calls, that they, the white hats knew best and the decision to continue to rearrange merchandise and block aisles would continue. One of the stupidest marketing moves since “new Coke”. I am no longer a WalMart customer.
    We truly have enjoyed shopping at Costco BUT if your white hats want to continue to re-invent stupid you will lose customers. Your very polite store staff said nothing about our frustration but the look on their faces told us that their feelings about finding items mirrored ours. We have absolutely no desire to play Costco’s new game of musical chair stupidity or dodge aisle displays in order to continue shopping there.
    Adding this pointless confusion and frustration to the recent decision and backtracking on Dinesh D’Souza’s book is really making us consider our continued support of Costco.
    Your North Idaho store is a great place and has some wonderful people but this does not overcome the very disagreeable shopping experience which we had there.
    Please, put things back where we can find them, stop playing such public politics and allow us, your means of support, to continue to enjoy our Costco shopping. We would hate to leave but . . .
