If the world doesn’t end and you just bought 90 cases of water, along with 7,000 rolls of toilet paper from Costco, you’re going to be well stocked for a while, because Coscto will no longer let you return those items.

Signs are starting to circulate around the stores and social media, showing that returns will not be honored for toilet paper, paper towels, sanitizing wipes, water, rice and Lysol.

According to Coscto Deals, it has been confirmed nationwide, so you’re stuck with your toilet paper forts.

Grocery stores have been madhouses, despite social distancing regulations, but they’ve been able to settle down and take better control of the crowds.

Several stores, including Costco, implemented exclusive shopping times for the elderly and those with special needs. A lot of stores are also implementing shopper limits, where only handfuls of people are let in at a time, to respect the large gathering restrictions.

All these adjustments should help with both employees and shoppers safety, and as a reminder, stores will not be shutting down, so no need to panic buy at the moment.
