Costco initiated "Senior Hours", effective today. Every Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 8:00-9:00 a.m. Costco stores are available to seniors only. This morning, that line at the Wadsworth and Quincy store was probably 150 people in length, stretching from the entrance to the service bay doors of their tire center and back again. Took me 50 minutes before I entered the store, as they were controlling how many customers were in the store at a time. Turned out that was wise as inside the store the aisles were very passable and easy to get to items. The check out lines were quick, being 2-3 people deep. Several customers were grumpy and acted as if, "Get the heck out of my way." Spoke with a person at the service counter on the way out who said they try telling people come at 2:00 in the afternoon when there is hardly anyone there. In fact, leaving at 10:00, this was the case; no line, few people in the store. Of course, still no paper products.

Just saying, Senior are napping at 2PM. and rise at 6AM, read the paper and if planning a Costco visit, plan to arrive there when it opens. FYI, I am a Senior and try really hard not to take an afternoon nap -- thus try to walk, feed the horses. My next Costco visit will be after 2PM.
