Costco Draws the Line

Now, Costco has drawn the line. It has drawn the line on returns. 

Normally, the store will allow you to return just about anything for just about any reason. And yet, considering how much toilet paper, hand sanitizer and wipes people have been hoarding, Costco has decided that it will not allow returns. Why should it pay for your panic?

Victoria Taft reports the good news:

But now Costco has made an announcement. All of the toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer, wipes, Lysol, water bottles, and rice hoarded by people by the cart and truck full will not be taken back. Signs in the store read (in all caps), "RETURNS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED ON TOILET PAPER, PAPER TOWELS, SANITIZING WIPES, WATER, RICE, LYSOL."

Taft suggests that people will now be trying to unload their extra supplies on Ebay, but that they will have some fierce competition there.

2nd that. There was no reason for the toilet paper/bottled water insanity to start with. Let's hope the other major retailers show the same good sense.
