This is not the first year Costco has closed on Christmas. The chain has maintained this tradition of closing its doors on December 25 for years.

This aligns with its focus on the well-being of its employees, giving them the opportunity to enjoy the holiday with their families.

It’s something that is much appreciated by workers.

Meanwhile, Costco is expected to continue operating normally during the run-up to Christmas for people to stock up on necessities.

Additionally, most people appreciate the competitive prices in the supermarket aisles this time of year.

If you live in the U.S. and do not yet have a Costco membership, there are currently two types: Gold Star and Executive.

The cost of each varies — the Gold Star membership costs $60 per year, while the Executive card costs $120.

The main difference between the two memberships is that an executive member can earn 2% cash back on all eligible purchases.
