Costco Warehouses to Remain Open
"The tragic events in New York and Washington, DC, are unprecedented in our Nation's history", explained Costco Wholesale CEO Jim Sinegal, "and we recognize that some of our colleagues in the retail industry have chosen to close their operations in response to these events. However, we also recognize that the goods we supply are viewed by many of our members as essential to their well-being, including food, prescriptions and other pharmaceuticals, as well as other supplies and equipment. Our members have told us in times of natural disasters, earthquakes, and other disruptive events, that our decision to remain operational was a convenience and comfort to them. For this reason, until further notice, or until we receive other instructions from governmental authorities in affected areas, we plan to observe our regular hours of operation."
