Costco stores are incredibly popular here in Montana. There are only five locations across the state, and every one that I have been to, always seems busy. Recently Costco has started making a change across some of their stores regarding scanning your membership card when going into the store, instead of having a person check your card. To shop at Costco regularly you need to have a membership. There are perks that go with having a membership to Costco. One of the perks is the extremely generous return policy.

There are people who feel she is taking advantage of Costco and morally shouldn't have returned the couch.

But be aware if you take advantage of them, you may see your membership revoked.
