Costco to Accept Food Stamps by Thanksgiving

Food & Party 20

Costco has announced that it will begin accepting food stamps at its warehouse clubs nationwide. This is a surprising move for the wholesale corporation given that, until very recently, the company doubted that consumers would actually opt to use them in the stores.

But when a food stamp test program at the New York locations saw a strong reponse from shoppers, Costco decided to begin accepting food stamps nationwide. By Thanksgiving, at least half of the Costco locations should be accepting food stamps.

Do you shop at Costco? What do you think about it accepting food stamps?
