Starting next month, if you’re not a member at Costco you won’t be able to frequent their food court.
But what about the gloriously priced pizza, soft serve, churros and beyond, you ask?
Well, according to KRON4 News, buying items from Costco has always required a membership — they simply haven’t enforced it until now.
“Effective March 16, 2020, an active Costco membership card will be required to purchase items from our food court,” a spokesperson confirmed.
The rules apply
So, is this bad news for non-members or simply an excuse to get that membership you’ve been coveting?
In the @costcodeals Instagram comments, Costco enthusiasts are torn: “Going to lose out of a lot of money from customers who don’t have membership,” one person wrote, while another contradicted, “As a paying member I support this.”
It costs about $60 a year for basic membership at Costco.
And while you’re grappling with your feelings on Costco’s newly enforced rule, dabble in the secret codes hidden in the warehouse’s price tags.
