Costco made a big announcement during their quarterly earnings call this week: They’re going to be bringing back their free samples.

Per Fox News, Costco CFO Richard Galanti said, “We’re going to start doing some things in mid-June on a slow rollout basis in sampling. I can’t tell you anymore, but … needless to say, it’s not going to be where you go and just pick up an open sample with your fingers. But sampling – food and nonfood items – are popular.”

Costco discontinued its popular sampling stations back in early March due to the coronavirus pandemic. The warehouse giant has changed a number of policies since then including requiring all customers to wear a mask while shopping at their nearly 800 locations across the United States.
