Went to Costco today and it was amazing. EVERY lane was open, zero wait. Got some frozen beef and chicken plus some other random crap then pepperoni and sausage pizza from the food court on the way out. It was probably the most painless Costco trip ever.

If youíre in Canada maybe you can get that shredded beef thing and put it on poutine if youíre too lazy to remove the gravy and cheese

Made a trip to the Co.

- No TP, paper towels, or baby wipes (these don't disinfect. Read the label.)
- No hand soap or cleaning supplies. Simple green is available, and plenty of shower soap and shampoo.
- No fresh meat or frozen vegetables. Plenty of frozen meat and fresh vegetables. Seafood all around.
- No white bread, sliced bread, or other processed breads. Full bakery section full of baguettes, croissants, bagels, cakes, pies, and all other manner of regular fresh baked goods.
- Rotisserie chickens available.
- Saw someone buying 200 lb of flour. I hope they own a bakery.
- The lady checking out at the register next to me ask the cashier if Costco opened early for executive members. She was not happy to hear that they did not and that Costco treats all of their members equally.

I can't imagine working retail and dealing with Peak Karen

Of course, there are a ton of tweets along the lines of "how dare the evil government penalize a good American for taking advantage of a business opportunity", so the other poster's comment above about this being the most American thing ever seems apt.

Are there rotisseries lately at Costco? Not that it's the same thing, just curious. I'm not stepping foot into Costco until all this poo poo is done but my local grocery store has a shitload of rotisserie chickens.

Went Friday ("yesterday") in Van Nuys which is north LA , got there 30 mins before opening, line moved enough that I got in around opening. Got TP and they probably ran out not long after I did. PT followed suit shortly afterward. Plenty of water seems like. Lot of people grabbing them chickens but after the initial zerg rush it seemed to even out


astral posted:

I went today (southern California): no paper products in sight but they had ridiculous amounts of bottled water. Frozen food area was half wasteland and half full stock.

Easiest Costco parking I've ever seen and no line to get in. Store was about as busy as normal, though not much in the way of a line at checkout. A friendly man behind me in the checkout line shared his open mouth coughs with my cart and conveyor belt of goods though, so that was nice.

Can confirm rotisserie chickens, limit 1 though.

get there before opening. You don't have to camp out (please dont loving do that) just get there at a reasonably early time.

also from what I'm hearing hand sanitizer is the hardest poo poo to come by since they don't get re-upped everyday

China doesn't have Costco as far as I'm aware. There was one in Hong Kong and a reseller to buy Costco stuff on Taobao when I lived there. We did have something called Metro, which is basically German Costco. You're right Costco food in Korea is the same as the US, the only concession to local tastes is the pump bottle of corn syrup to put on your pizza/hot dogs.

E: Looks like they just opened the first Costco in Shanghai last fall. I now remember seeing these videos of people fighting over things at it, forgot that was Costco. lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UfO4gpML4g

I only watched it once but the fighting over chickens was seared into my brain

this is a broader question, do any of the shops (target/walmart/etc) get n95 masks in on the reg the same way TP does? I don't even want them to wear, wonder if local fire fighters and medical people could use them

I haven't even bothered looking for them

I went last Friday and even though they instituted one eggs per person they were stacks on stacks of eggs. Keep in mind it was around opening but they are probably starting to even out. Even some Costcoís will have pictures of TP longer than hadrians wall

I read about this and we gave it a try on the weekend (weekdays aren't an option). No go, poo poo was sold out before we got in the door.

We're getting low-ish. Once we get down to the last 3 rolls I'm handing them over to my wife and then it's washcloths and showers for me.

I did a run for some and have an extra if you need. It's from Ralphs
