Unfamiliar Sight: Empty Store and Parking Lot During Daylight Hours
You know a retail store is popular when a steady stream of cars pulls up in front, and is momentarily frustrated/perplexed by the sight of an empty Costco store and parking lot — a store that might otherwise have thousands of people and hundreds of cars on a busy holiday weekend (full disclosure: one of those cars was mine).
But, unlike most retail establishments on Memorial Day, Costco is closed.
As both a regular Costco shopper and (very small) shareholder, it makes me like and respect the company even more.
P.S.: the store is also closed Easter, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
