New Senior Shopping Hours At Costco Start 7/26

Last year Costco introduced senior shopping hours to accommodate the older more vulnerable population, but as COVID cases began to decrease they announced their senior hours were going away. Today they reversed course and announced they’ll keep senior hours two days a week, but recommend you confirm those times with your local Costco.

Effective July 26, 2021, Costco will have special operating hours for members ages 60 and older, and for people with disabilities, on Tuesday and Thursday from 9 to 10 a.m., until further notice. Please check with your local warehouse to confirm hours.

During those times only members ages 60 and older, and those with disabilities or who are immunocompromised will be allowed to shop. Guests will not be admitted. Costco continues to monitor COVID-19 in the community and will update their policies accordingly.

Of course, Costco members who are healthcare workers (which includes pharmacists and all hospital employees with a hospital ID) and first responders (police officers, EMTs and firefighters) may enter the warehouse during Special Operating Hours, as well as regular operating hours.

At the moment Costco’s mask policy depends on local state and city regulations but is subject to change.

In response to the news posted on Facebook, members said the senior hours have made them feel safe and they’re willing to drive further to shop at Costco. Many responded with requests that Costco continue offering senior hours permanently. Offering senior hours gives members 60 and older a chance to shop when the store is less crowded.
