Costco’s food court policy
hits low-income families
Re: “Costco changes its food court policy: You gotta be a member” (Mercurynews.com, Feb. 22)
It is honestly a shame to see this policy being implemented, as it is recognized how several low-income families rely on the affordability of Costco’s food court offerings.
Having this policy enforced will restrict a large portion of their consumers from being able to continue having access to these inexpensive options. Although this rule is most likely being enacted in order to induce customers into spending money on a membership, Costco must properly evaluate whether they would gain more profit through instilling this policy (and thus decrease the rate of consumers who purchase from their food courts) or maintaining the current rate of customers who do not hold a membership yet purchase from their food courts.

The attention garnered from the publicity over this policy is also evidently harming the company’s image.
