Costco offers a great opportunity to score bulk items at a great price but that’s not the only reason why people love Costco. Many love their inexpensive food court that offers you a quick bite for as low as $1.00! Costco guests are able to score low-cost food without a membership but that is about to change! Soon, guests who choose to dine at Costco may be required to have a membership which will set you back about $60 per year for the basic level.

A few U.S. Costco Members have spotted a sign that states “Effective March 16, 2020, an active Costco membership will be required to purchase items from our food court. You can join today. Please see our membership counter for details,” An Instagram user @CostcoDeals spotted the sign and shared it with its 600 thousand followers. Even though the post boasts 10 thousand likes, judging by the comments, it looks like people have mixed feelings about it. One Instagram user said “I thought membership was always required just to step foot in the door. This makes sense. Nonmembers shouldn’t be using the food court.” Another Instagram user said “That sucks, as a member, I don’t mind standing in line an extra 10 mins if that means a nonmember who might not be able to afford anything else will be fed! My goodness…”

It’s worth noting that there is no official statement from Costco whether or not this change will be effective in all stores nationwide so for now, keep your eyes peeled for the signs in a Costco near you. But the question is, how do you feel about it?
