Opening time, toilet paper restrictions and coronavirus.
Costco Perth is set to launch the first of their WA megastores on Thursday and if the DFO opening is anything to go by there could be thousands of people rushing the doors come 8am.
But will the fear of the coronavirus pandemic stop shoppers from attending the opening of the global giant?
Costco Perth and Coronavirus
Despite a statewide ban on gatherings over 500+ people, Costco is could be set to draw an opening day crowd on Thursday into the thousands which could see many eager punters coming in close contact with each other – especially when shopping for toilet paper.
A tweet last week from Nadia shows rows and rows of toilet paper stacked ready for eager shoppers.
Costco shopping restrictions
Just like other supermarket chains, Costco will also be putting a limit on toilet paper for its customers limiting 1 pack per customer.
Though that one pack contains 60 rolls – so these will no doubt be in high demand.
There has yet to be any official word from Costco though in regards to other product restrictions for the Perth store given the current crisis of other local supermarkets.
More to come as we learn more.
