Visit To Costco Headquarters

Greenpeace campaign supporters hold a sign that says "Caution: Costco sells unsustainable seafood" in front of Costco corporate offices near Seattle, Washington on June 29, 2010. Citing the company’s lack of a transparent and meaningful sustainable seafood policy, Greenpeace launched the next phase of its sustainable seafood campaign today targeting Costco. Although Costco tells its shareholders and customers that it supports sustainable seafood, it sells 15 of the 22 ‘red-listed’ seafoods including two of the world’s most critically imperiled species: orange roughy and Chilean sea bass.

    Good job, Greenpeace! Thanks a Lot for looking out for us!
    I WILL!!! ---------------------
    I like to add that they are also milking down products with unethical business practices, like the following: Costco Item# 5623 Broccoli - 2.5LB (1.13kg) Bag - UM=LB. Distributed by Duda, Farm Fresh Foods, Inc., (i/n 88402). Costco Item# 5623 was 3LB last time (06/21/2010); now it is another brand and 2.5LB (20% LESS WEIGHT than the last one, with a 20% PRICE RISE). They are same length but smaller DIAMETER. Costco $3.99 (12/20/2010)

    For the past 10 years myself, my businesses, family and friends are cutting down purchasing at Costco because of Corporate Practices; like using the same item ID for a similar but watered down product, like before it was 3 pounds and now it is 2.5 pounds, meaning higher prices for less weight, increasing their profits, deceiving the customer with their cheating practices! Many of their prices are the same or higher than Cash&Carrie, Top Food, Albertson, etc. (KEEP ON MIND THAT COSTCO IS A WHOLESALE COMPANY!!!! At least it was back to 2003!)

    Not only that they increased their prices so much that now, we have to shop around for prices! (REMEMBER? THEY ARE WHOLESALERS, NOT RETAILERS!!!!) I get the best meat and seafood items from Top Foods when they are on sale, at lower price than Costco, which happens pretty often, and without paying a membership. Costco WHOLESALE prices are almost the same as the local grocery stores (Top Food being the most expensive before) like I said, it’s more balanced now.

    My personal grocery shopping History @ Costco went down over 40% of total amount, also my groceries habits changed in the past 10 years to avoid un-healthy food. Keeping in mind food prices increased over 120% for a period of the last 10 years; my eating habits are healthier and consuming less food, even with that I am almost 50% down with my groceries bills, based on the year of 1999.

    • Wallmart does the same thing, buying in china, selling on USA, losing jobs (do you think it’s food quality control in Corporate America of China, as we deserve?)
    • Also, THANKS to the N.A.F.T.A. AGREEMENTS, more jobs are lost forever (do you think it’s food quality control in Corporate America of Mexico, as we deserve?)
    • The political mafia works the same all over the world, creating laws to protect the riches, who in return gives them money (I forgot that buying a politician is “LEGAL”, making “their own Laws” calling it Lobbying is Legal!!!!!), putting out of business small local farmers, slaving the people throughout impoverishment, creating the problem that is getting harder and harder to afford a decent human live, including purchasing healthy food and healthcare (I forgot the newly health insurance law! if you don't have insurance you will be fine by Law! HOW THIS is good for people???? Only in their sick and twisted minds) Do you think it’s food quality control in politicians and Corporate America corrupted minds, as we deserve?
    • DO YOU KNOW THAT the FDA (back on 2007) will allow Corporate America to label their products as “Organic” if they add a molecule of carbon to it? HOW IS THAT HEALTHY? IT IS DECEIVING!!! (do you think it’s food quality control in FDA and Corporate America minds, as we deserve?)

    • I’m really glad to see that the corruption and degenerates of this world won’t change their ways, so they will suffer for the whole eternity, remembering why and how they got there!!!!!!

    •• I like to add that the creator took me to HELL, so I can tell people what is like it! and it is not god at all; the human souls are covered with a dark brown one piece heavy cloth from head to toe, like a monk; they keep walking around for the whole eternity with their remorse, head down, they don't look at each other, they don't speak to each other, and they don't bump onto each other, and each one of them is crying like "we, humans" never imagine such a pain that makes us cry so badly could exist!!!
