Costco is cracking down on non-members taking to social media announcing that it will now require a membership to eat at its food court.

The warehouse giant merchant recently announced that it would no longer allow the general public to access its food court without a valid membership card effective on March 16, 2020.

Costco took to Instagram to post a picture of a sign that reads:

"Effective March 16, 2020, an active Costco membership card will be required to purchase items from our food court. You can join today. Please see our membership counter for details."

Back in 2018, Costco announced that they were revamping their café menu and that included a healthier salad option but also included the elimination of their Polish dog. Soon after, fans took to social media to protest their utter displeasure and even creating the #SaveThePolishDog on Twitter.

Amidst the social online chaos from fans, Sam’s Club brilliantly brainstormed a quick and succinct promotion by announcing that they will continue to offer their Polish dogs to everyone including non-members, as their café is still accessible to the general public.
