Shopping Hours for Seniors at Costco

Shopping Hours for Seniors at Costco


Costco has joined other big box stores in creating special shopping hours for senior customers.

The bulk retailer said in a statement Saturday that it will open its doors for members 60 years and older every Tuesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. The special hours will begin March 24, 2020.

Hey Roy, we both hope you and the Chef are taking every precaution right now. We are doing our best to keep the virus at bay - and away from mom. Glad Costco is also offering special hours.  Take very good care.  D

Seniors are likely to find special hours really beneficial.  And, it should provide them with a little less anxiety.

It is great they are doing this Roy. I was able to get some fresh meats and produce yesterday by being there mid morning when they started bringing more out.

Hi Roy,  Glad to hear many stores are trying to accommodate our seniors.   Thanks for sharing the beautiful orchids.  Makes it feel like spring.

Hi Roy- We have some special senior hours here in Houston but have not yet taken advantage of them.

Roy, I went this morning for the first time for me, and had a list for one of my at risk neighbors.   There were more in the store than when I went before.

Hello Roy,  I guess this is good but wonder how wise it is if seniors should do this.

Smart seniors are staying at home and are opting for home deliveries.
