Instagrammer @CostcoDeals shared a photo of a sign that says non-Costco members will lose access to the food court starting in about a month. NOOO!
“Effective March 16, 2020, an active Costco membership card will be required to purchase items from our food court,” the sign reads. “You can join today. Please see our membership counter for details.”
People were understandably devastated in the comments. After all, the Costco food court is home to treats like hot dogs and pizza beloved by everyone from Julia Child to the rest of us mere mortals.
“Going to lose out of a lot of money from customers who don’t have membership that do purchase from the outdoor food court,” one person wrote. “This is so lame honestly, what exactly do they need it for is not like we getting a hotdog for free lmao,” another said. “As a paying member I support this,” someone else wrote.
