Costco may soon require membership to shop at food court

The open-to-all Costco food court ends here.

According to numerous reports, some locations of the warehouse chain are planning to change their food court rules and start requiring a membership to purchase Costco’s appetizing hot dogs and $1 churros.

Costco locations nationwide may soon require customers buying cheap eats from the big box store’s food court to have a valid Costco membership which starts at about $60 per year.

A local news outlet in San Diego, 10News, verified that one Costco location in Mountain View, CA has put up a sign notifying customers that they will soon be requested to have membership for food court.

Costco corporate office has not responded to Fox News’ comment request to confirm if this rollout will be nationwide or just at select locations.

On social media outlets, several Costco customers have posted photos of signs reading, “Effective March 16, 2020, an active Costco membership card will be required to purchased items from our food court.” At the bottom, there was additional information for people interested in joining.

Some took snapshots of signs that read, “Coming soon … Your membership card will be required to purchase food court items.”
