Sorry but we are not here to humor Costco's intent to just close accounts and force people to re-apply at another place. If that is the plan, I will take my family out, due to the annoyance. And there are other stores that will happily take people's money.
there was a line at the cashiers and i went to self checkout about 10 items. i didn't see bags so i asked, they pointed out some paper bags on the left. i said, 'are those free?' and they said no. then i asked if they had any plastic bags. they said no. then i asked if i could take the little basket to my car and bring it back. they said no. my final decision: "i am not going to buy anything, thanks, bye." i just feel bad for the lady who had to put the stuff back.
