While I don't OPEN carry inside Costco, I always do when I am pumping my gas. Lot's of hostile stares from our Canadian visitors (we are closest Costco over the border near Vancouver), put the only comment was an "atta boy" from the Costco gas attendant.

so boomboy007, perhaps you have missed this forum’s discussions regarding abiding by private property rights as well as COSTCO’s membership provisions which specifically ban firearms, OC or CC on their property?

Perhaps the sour looks are those COSTCO members showing distain at someone flagrantly ignoring the organization’s policies!

I must take exception to your perception.
"Costco policy prohibits firearms to be brought into the warehouse, except in the case of authorized law enforcement officers."
It appears from their policy that keeping and bearing arms on their property is not prohibited, except for only in the building/warehouse itself.

Funny. Our Canadian visitors come from Quebec, some from Ontario and Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and I think they'd be disappointed if they didn't see someone in NH OCing.

Same for visitors from MA and NY.

It's all part of their expectation: "OMG I survived the gun-toting hillbillies!"

i surrender to your interpretation, except for these snippets...

“Costco Warehouses means Costco’s membership warehouse locations branded with the Costco Marks that are in operation now or may be operated in the future, in the United States or Puerto Rico. For purposes of this Agreement, the defined term “Costco Warehouses” shall include Costco Gasoline Outlets.”
