Costco took this alarming step to crack down on scalpers

Costco took this alarming measure to ban the resellers of its products, especially those who do it with its cakes and pies.

If you’re one of those folks who goes to Costco to do this activity and make some extra cash, or you have your favorite vendor getting a slice of their coveted Cocho Fudge chocolate cake, you’re about to run into trouble.

And it so happens that no matter what type of membership you have, Costco now has limitations if you want to buy large quantities of desserts.

What alarming step has Costco taken to crack down on scalpers?

To put an end to resellers and ensure all customers have an opportunity to purchase the desserts of their choice, Costco has implemented restrictions you should know before visiting a store.

And after massive complaints on social networks, where several users complain about the people who come to buy a large number of this type of product, this wholesale chain has decided to take this alarming measure.

And it so happens that a Tiktok user on the liizy.gomez account has reported that since last weekend Costco stores have been putting up signs advising limited sales of their cakes and tarts.

Regardless of your membership type, each member can only purchase a total of 5 of these products per day, and again there are other restrictions depending on the type of dessert.

This is because if you buy 5 desserts per day, you are allowed to include a maximum of 2 units of each variety, for example 2 Choco Fudge cakes, 2 Chocoflans and one more.

Most read in the “Economy” category.

Previously, this measure only applied to special holidays such as Mother’s Day, but everything indicates that it will now apply to all customers 365 days a year.

Several netizens have celebrated this move, noting that Costco guarantees they can purchase one of these coveted products.
