The Naperville one is a little surprising since that's a big metropolitan area, but there is another in Montgomery less than five miles away so that probably had something to do with it.

    I picture the shareholders at Costco giving major side-eye over this news.

    Not me. This is good news for shareholders. Eliminate under-producing stores, cut overhead, increase profit. It's a big win for shareholders, but unfortunately, probably not for the employees. Also, a few of these stores are being turned into online order distribution centers (with employees invited to stay on). That's where the big e-money is (also good for shareholders). :wink:

    In hopes of pacifying customers who are upset over the closures and want to cancel their membership,Sams's club is offering a free 3 month extension.

    For those people here who belong to Sams Club, I've heard that the Wheeling store is already marking everything down 25%. This does not include pharmacy and tires.

    Hi- I know there are not a lot of fans of Sams Club here, but I just heard that they are now limiting meat purchases to one package per member. I am going there some time this afternoon to pick up a prescription, and I will check this out. I think the only meat I have ever bought there is chicken sausage.

    Costco is limiting meat purchases to 3 per day.

    Last time I there ( about 3 weeks ago in the Glenview location ), they had no chicken of any kind.

    Hi- I was at Sam's Club today, and they let me go to the front of the line because I was going there to pick up a prescription, but I got there at 6:15, and there was probably a half hour wait to get in, and they close at 8:00. The Evanston store is limiting meat purchases to three packages of meat. They had ground turkey, chicken breast, chicken thighs, and about a half a case of beef and pork. They had no chicken legs or whole chickens.
