Prescott, Arizona (pronounced press-kit) is home to a Costco and I thought that I’d recon the place this morning. We received more snow than they did, but it snowed in Prescott all the same. My mission was to see what was available at the Costco.
|The first task was brushing off the snow and warming the truck up.|
Would the people of Prescott show up on a snow day?
I planned to be there 15 minutes before they opened at 10:00 am. And I arrived after a 100 minute drive at 9:45 am to find it open and doing business. They opened early for senior citizens.
The place was fully stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, bleach and everything else that my heart desired. $400 later, I left Costco, stocked with supplies, and headed up to higher altitude, where it was still snowing.
People were polite, but in Prescott, most of the people are packing handguns openly or concealed. I had two, but had concerns based on the news cycle that things could get ugly. Everything was normal except that the toilet paper packs (usual huge Costco packs) were by the front door so that you could just pick them up on the way in.
No empty shelves.
Tons of food at the usual prices.
