Wow! Despite being known as the discount retailer for affluent people, Costco is now accepting food stamps. People are saying it's a sign that the economy is still shaky despite reports that the recession is over. I think that there are a lot of people on food stamps these days who USED to be affluent, or at least stable and now their fortunes have changed. The thing about stores like Costco, is that they make it really easy to buy in bulk. Costco tested the program out in New York and it was a success.
What do you think about Costco accepting food stamps? Have you ever used food stamps?
