Most people in Colorado love Costco. The membership-based shopping experience is fantastic. Bulk shopping, great deals, and a food court is what make Costco one of the biggest chains in the country.

The food court is a favorite amongst Coloradans. Costco's food court is about to be a lot less available to people.

Costco has decided that they will no longer allow non-members to use their food court. If you want to eat at Costco's food court, you better cough up $60 for their membership fee.

Costco's food court has been available for the general public since I can remember. When I was growing up my mom would take us to the Costco food court even when we were not members.
