This is from a store in Buford Ga.I have recently upgraded this stores review one additional star due to the addition of the U-Scan checkouts, although today when I got to them, there were no lights on any of the units, nor anyone standing by any of them. Fortunately, there was (1) full-service checkout open. So while checking out after the store had been open 15 minutes, I began to see U-Scan operators taking their places.My main complaint for this update regarded the opening time for the store. Today is Tuesday, Sept 8th, and if you are a senior, Costco opens at 9am on weekdays. When I pulled into the lot at around 8:50, there were about 8 seniors standing outside the locked doors waiting for them to open. This is a normal sight no matter what day or what time they open. People always there early in hopes they open the doors a little early, which they do often. While waiting in my car and reviewing my extremely accurate watch regarding the time, I noticed it being 8:59, and still the doors were shut. I got out of the car and walked up to the carts. Still not open. I grabbed a cart and sat down on a post block. Finally, at 9:03 the first people were allowed to enter. When I went in, I stopped to ask the door greeter why 3 minutes late? She said, oh, on some days we have floor palates to put away.So, from my visit today, I take it the store manager doesnt require his store to be ready for business at the opening time, nor does he require his checkout operators to be at their stations ready for customers either.Ive worked many a year in retailing and I have never worked for an organization that did not believe in being ready for their customers during store hours.I also would love to have a business where there was a line of customers outside each day before opening. I guarantee you, I would NEVER require them to wait even a moment past my posted opening hour.Like everyone else, I pay at least $60 per year for the privilege to shop here - is it too much to ask that you keep enough registers open so we arent faced with long lines? As you can see by the photos, always plenty of unmanned registers available, just no one asked to operate them. Short lines cut into their profit, which at the end of their last reported 3-month report, was a net profit of over 700 million dollars. At that pace, they should end the year over 2.8 Billion dollars. Keeping you and I waiting in lines reduces their manpower costs and places it on the back of their customer. So I say, isnt it enough we pay $60 a year?
