    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.

    Sam's Club said early Thursday that it will make curbside pickup available at all 597 club locations by the end of June.

    Face coverings are no longer required at Sam's Club if you're fully vaccinated. I was there over the weekend and I only saw about two people not wearing masks. I also saw a gallon of hand sanitizer marked down to $1.48!

    I have enough sanitizer for the next 10 years assuming there aren't any more pandemics.

    You can always distill the sanitizer to get straight ethanol to drink!

    Masks. hand sanitizers and wipes I have seen on clearance at Jewel too. I am surprised that there were only two people that were maskless at Sams. When I went in the store, when things were bad pandemic wise, I saw all kinds of people that were not wearing their mask correctly, and one day, I saw a woman with her three kids, and all of the kids had their masks down so they could eat or drink. I have also seen women covering their face with a silk scarf, and nothing else. When I go in Jewel, 95% of the people are wearing their mask correctly. but both Walmart and Sams Club have all kinds of customers that do not social distance and do not wear their mask correctly.

    Same at Costco in Oak Brook over the weekend. But I didn't notice that signage until I was leaving. Everyone was masked.

    I noticed the signage in Walmart as I entered in Niles. Only a couple of people were unmasked inside.

    I saw the same signage in Jewel in the city on Sunday. Everyone was masked.

    Same signage in Oak Brook over the weekend, no one was unmasked.

    Save yours truly who forgot it then saw the sign and went in to grab the Mobile Order (alas they messed it up).
