Sounds like bullsh*t to me.
I thought the same.
I just found a new supply of forks!

(at least for the Brooklyn Costco, I don't know about other places.)
Just like everything, there's some truth with lots of BS. Definitely checking for missed promotions or coupons is total BS.

The following quote might be accurate (with the exception of the last sentence which is just an opinion, rather than fact).:
Quote
“Trust me, we’re not loss prevention, we have loss prevention in the store and that’s not us," writes one former Costco employee. "We’re literally just trying to make sure our cashiers do the job right, and when we do catch it, all the information gets stored. Who did it, what time, etc...and those cashiers get spoken to. This is not to benefit anyone but the member to improve the experience overall.”
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Anyone can say that, and occasionally (rarely) it's actually true, where you are double charged for something, or you pay for something and forgot it behind. But in most cases, that statement would be BS.

I remember the early days. Yossel was a good friend. Every time I think about the fact that he didn't make it to my current age, it runs chills through me. Unfortunately the same can be said about another good friend who lived on the same block as Yossel.

And that early presence on Dorsai Embassy is real nostalgia.

Very sad situation indeed, and embarrassing to know how many Shomrei Shabbos are in this business of ruining people's lives for personal financial gain.

I have a friend who unfortunately signed one of these "confessions of judgment" and ended up shutting down his business. Luckily he might have been personally spared from financial ruin by this (other than losing his business).

When a relative was entering this business and discussed it with me, I told him that I feel that the worst part about this business (even without the "confession of judgment" trick) is that it simply destroys one's moral compass.

The day when there's a crackdown on these operations can't come soon enough, and now I learn that this should come to the front burner and become a major issue in NY politics. NY shouldn't be allowed to be the venue for these kinds of things.
