Weekend Update – Costco Sale Items for Mar 27-29, 2020 for BC, AB, MB, SK
Location: Still Creek Burnaby, BC Costco Warehouse
I went to the Costco at Still Creek in Burnaby BC today to pick up some more milk and vegetables. I got to the store at 8:08AM and by then the line wrapped around the store 3/4 of the way around the whole store. It was raining outside and I was surprised at the number of people who didn’t have umbrellas. Go figure. I didn’t see what time Costco opened its doors (My guess is around 8:15AM) because I was inside the store at 8:25AM. They were handing hand sanitizer out at the front of the store with a limit of one per household. Apparantly they hand Lysol Wipes (I saw some people with them in the carts), but I didn’t see any. They seemed well stocked with many other items. We should consider ourselves very lucky – I just spoke to my friend in London, UK and he was saying that he had to go to four grocery stores to get everything on his shopping list for his family!
The entire stationary and office supply aisle was blocked off and that was where they were handing out toilet paper. Every checkout is open and there are new glass shields to protect the cashiers. There were a couple of employees with large signs reminding people to keep 6 feet away from each other while shopping and trying to break up people who were too close together.
There was lots of produce for sale today which was great for me since that was what I was there for. Blackberries seemed incredible cheap! Anyways, back to entertaining the kids…
