Having a little one means that our house goes through a lot of supplies. Our number three supplies from Costco are: Kirkland Toilet Paper; Kirkland Paper Towels; and, Kirkland Baby Wipes.*
Sunday was wet and cold in the morning, so we decided to take our little one on a fun shopping expedition to Costco. Of course, being semi absent minded on a Sunday morning, I didn’t even check their hours of operation – we just jumped in the car at 9:20am and off we went.
We were at Costco, and happily shopping by 9:30am.
Any long time Costco member will object to my statement now, and say: “No, no, no! Check the hours. Costco doesn’t open until 10am on Sundays.”
Yes. Unbeknownst to me, Costco says that they open at 10am. That said, when we arrived the parking lot was packed, and people were already coming out with their goodies.
Is it their best secret, or their worst secret? I don’t know. But what I do know is that I’ve never known about this secret until this weekend. It appears that there is a real secret in the world of Costco: they open their doors way way way early.
Thinking about a Costco run? Try heading there early, you won’t regret it. But, after some internet sleuthing, it seems that no one actually knows the rules for how early they open – some 30 minutes early, and some 15 minutes early.
PS: Sorry if I ruined this secret for all you early goers. You should have told me about this years ago, and I wouldn’t have spilled the beans.
*No, I am in no way affiliated with Costco, and I received nothing for saying this. In fact, those three products are the best in their class (in my humble opinion).
