reports, Costco shoppers may soon be required to scan their membership
cards before entering any of the retail giant’s warehouse
outlets……instead of simply holding their cards up to a marginally attentive
employee as they enter the stores.
appears a machine will be placed at the stores’ entrances, to be operated by an
assumedly more focused Costco employee. A recent post on Reddit purported to
show a picture of a shopper scanning his card while a Costco employee looks
on. Below the scanner, a sign can be seen, stating: "You will be asked to
scan your membership card before entering the warehouse."
One must present—and scan—a picture
I.D. to enter? No more “undocumented shoppers,” I guess.
It’s literally going to be harder to
enter a Costco than to cross our southern border and enter the United States.
Good for Costco.
Bad for the U.S.
