Oh, About That Totally Sneaky Costco Trick

Before we left on vacation, I was farting around on the Internets and came across someone who claimed that you didn't need a Costco membership to buy alcohol at Costco due to state liquor laws. Given that liquor laws are usually insanely complicated, I thought that, well, that just might be true, right?

Anyhow, I fired off an E-mail to Costco's customer service desk, and here's what I got back:

Dear Christopher,

Thank you for your email to Costco Wholesale.

Yes. As a condition of our alcoholic beverage licenses in California, all warehouses must permit non-members who wish to purchase alcoholic beverages to enter and make purchases. Non-members requesting entry for the purpose of purchasing alcoholic beverages should be directed to the membership department.

Thank you,

Sue
Costco Wholesale Corporation
