Later times, Costco is less crowded but by then the "good" stuff is gone.

Someone on NextDoor said they restock 4 times a day but I think that's unlikely for the paper products.

While I think we have enough for my family, as I said above, I am also looking for my friends and co-workers because they were late to the pandemic party.

We were able to get TP right when they were restocking (after the pandemic party) so it's your choice to believe or not.  ;)

At Costco? Today? Or last week? :)

3 weeks ago. JK.

You were questioning if they would restock the paper products. So I'm answering they do. How to time those restocking time slots is not something I know of. I guess we were just lucky.

Also you were originally asking if any Costco has less wait time. I just provided times when there are less people. If you were to argue how good quality stuff are left by then, then I guess you or your friend would have to line up from 2am. Your choice.

You keep missing my point about your timing. From what I understand, your last visit to Costco was a week ago, so while they may have been restocking throughout the day then... they may not be now, which is why everyone lines up in the morning.

I guess I should added more context but during this current situation when talking about Costco and status, I was referring to the wait and inventory of the sought after items. I wouldn't be asking about Costco if I wanted to stop by in the afternoon to get a hot dog and soda (no lines for that at all).

OK then. You can disregard everything I said. Sorry for taking up spaces.

For all others, try around lunch time if you want to wait less. I'll also update next time I visit.

Costco at Alton (near Spectrum) had no line today. I went in 12:30pm and finished by 1:00pm. There were plenty of stuff in stock.

There is a sign at the entrance that says they don't have certain stuff like paper products, but when I went in they were restocking those. Many could grab TP. I would assume the sign was not up to date/minute.

Nice. So as you said, they do restock during the day, so maybe a midday visit would be more fruitful. I will try as it's near home and I know some others who have not been able to get paper products.

Thanks!

I would also check live status update on how busy they are. It's been pretty accurate.

I was there at 11:30 and TP was already gone.  But right around 12:00, there’s new delivery of TP and a long line form immediately towards the back to pick up TP. 

Yeah, it’s not crowded at all and plenty of stuff in stock.

Costco run at 8pm at district. No lines to get in. No lines to pay. Huge area for water. Looked like they just restocked the water because it was full. Most everyone was in stock except TP and didn’t see any bleach/Clorox wipes.

Interesting that TP is still in such demand. The Ralph’s on jamboree has TP the other day around 4pm. Not much left but still had some.
