For days and days it looked like Black Friday at Costco. Or, as the Instagram account “CostcoBuys” put it, “Panic at the Costco.” . . .
Customers lined up around stores to buy things they most certainly did not want to run out of in the case they’d be under quarantine for days on end.
Where’s the toilet paper!!

And the rolled gold was increasing in value in the eyes of the hoarders. As a joke, this toilet paper roll was put in the fine jewelry section of Costco with a $200 price tag. . .
But now Costco has made an announcement. All of the toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer, wipes, Lysol, water bottles, and rice hoarded by people by the cart and truck full will not be taken back. Signs in the store read (in all caps), “RETURNS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED ON TOILET PAPER, PAPER TOWELS, SANITIZING WIPES, WATER, RICE, LYSOL.”
