This past weekend, I went with my husband to shop at Costco to stock up on household supplies, and to save money on our grocery bills since we are expecting our first child in March. We saved money on protein, and got our freezer stocked for the month with it. While we were there, the store was busy. The employees were helpful, kind, and one of them helped me load the groceries to be checked out at the cash register when my husband ran into the back of the store to pick up an item he'd wanted to get.
I looked around, and I saw what a high-performing wholesale store looks like with well-paid employees that have access to health care insurance. It didn't look like Costco was going out of business. There were no employees standing around, looking beaten and worn down. The cashiers didn't have the vacant, thousand-yard stare look that I often see on cashiers at Wal-Mart and other big box retailers.
