Costco has reduced their senior shopping hours to two weekdays starting this week.
Costco’s new senior shopping hours are 9 am to 10 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Costco previously announced its Monday through Friday senior shopping hour would end on July 26, 2021. However, the chain announced last week that it is cutting back but not eliminating senior hours.
“Instead of discontinuing, we’ll maintain hours for seniors Tuesdays and Thursdays, until further notice,” Richard Galanti, Costco’s chief financial officer, told USA TODAY.
The senior hour is for Costco members over age 60 or for those with disabilities or who are otherwise compromised.

Customers on the Costo Facebook page expressed their appreciation for the reversal. A typical comment is:
“Thank you so much Costco. Your senior hours made this about the only place I shopped during quarantine. I felt safe and so loved going. I’m thankful for the two days and that you always look out for your customers. Love COSTCO!”

Updated Face Mask Policy

Face coverings will still be required in some close contact situations in healthcare settings, including Pharmacy, Optical, Hearing Aid.
