Costco Imposing New Closing Hours and Limiting Number of Shoppers
Costco is implementing new store hours and policies that determine how many customers can shop at one time.
According to their website, the new policies will go into effect at all their stores on Friday, April 3rd. However, Lubbock's Costco location at 6020 34th Street has already implemented the new hours.
Costco warehouses will begin closing at 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Their gas stations will open at 7:30 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. on weekdays.
Also, Costco will only allow two people per membership type to shop at one time. Costco is establishing exclusive hours for those over the age of 60 to shop Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8 to 9 a.m. Costco will then open to the general public at their normal opening time of 10 a.m.
In addition to these changes, Costco will continue with purchase limitations on high-demand items.
