Have you been looking through Costco.com lately wondering where all the movies and books have gone? Well, so did one of my other readers, Jeff (thanks, Jeff, for pointing this out). So, I did some searching and finally asked the Costco.com customer service people what had happened to all of the DVDs. Luckily, they were able to shed some light on the missing movies, unfortunately, not everyone is going to be happy with the response, I’m guessing. Here’s their response:
Unfortunately, Costco.com is no longer selling books or movies although an assortment of these items will still be offered at your local warehouse.
It is our goal to provide our members with the highest quality name-brand products while keeping our stock focused on the best selling items. Since we price our items as low as possible, all items must demonstrate high sales in order for us to continue to stock them on our site.
So, if you turn to Costco.com for your movies or books, sadly, you’ll need to find a new place to shop. However, the good news is that you will still be able to find movies and books at your local warehouse. I’m so glad to hear that they’re not going to stop selling books and movies at the warehouses too because they are top spot for buying these items; mostly impulse buying. The prices are competitive and I can pick them up when I’m doing the rest of my shopping, which cuts down on another trip to someplace else.
