Why exactly does that bother you? Who cares? If you can't purchase something, there is really no reason for you to be in there is there? Why should paying members have to deal with random curious people wandering the aisles and standing in line to get food samples from the sample people? Even as a member, I don't go in there unless I have something specific to buy.....Keeps the crowds lower and again, decreases the opportunities for people who are not so honest to be taking something or damaging something they don't pay for.

I agree, my first thought also. I was a Sam's Club member for many years since there was no Costco in my town. Sam's did have longer lines than I preferred, but otherwise a good store.

I joined Costco after the "newness" wore off. Costco is a great store. I go there weekly and the lines are never more than 5 minutes wait. The employees are helpful and they have a great selection that is rotated weekly if not more.

I think more stores should look to Costco on how to run a retail store efficiently.
