One of the fun things about going to Costco is tasting the free samples. With coronavirus preventative measures, the samples were removed from stores. Costco says they are targeting mid-June to bring back the snacks. It will be a little different though. Costco Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti said on the quarterly earnings call, “I can’t tell you anymore, but needless to say, it’s not going to be where you go and just pick up an open sample with your fingers.” Galanti said the samples will return on a “slow rollout basis.” What sample convinced you to buy the product?
