The Fourth of July, Indendence Day is on a Sunday this year. But July 4, 2021 is not a day off for everyone. Workers in the service and food industry are kept very busy to satisfy the demand for July 4th holiday gatherings. But what about the retail stores? What about our beloved Costco store in the South of Market San Francisco?

  • New Year’s Day
  • Easter
  • Memorial Day

Costco has long had a reputation for being very worker-friendly, so that culture may have played a part in the store closing on July 4.

Costco began here in California. The company’s first location, opened in 1976 under the Price Club name, was in a converted airplane hangar in San Diego. It was originally serving only small businesses but the fledgeing company found it could achieve far greater buying clout by also selling to non-business members..The first Costco Warehouse store opened in 1983 in Seattle. Costco merged with Price Club in 1993 under the name PriceCostco with 206 locations.

“Our operating philosophy has been simple,” the company explained on its Web site. “Keep costs down and pass the savings on to our members. Our large membership base and tremendous buying power, combined with our never-ending quest for efficiency, result in the best possible prices for our members. Since resuming the Costco name in 1997, the company has grown worldwide with total sales in recent fiscal years exceeding $64 billion.

“Costco has transformed the retail world. When entrepreneur Sol Price introduced a groundbreaking retail concept in San Diego, California. Price Club was the world’s first membership warehouse club, a place where efficient buying and operating practices gave members access to unmatched savings.”

Costco has long had a reputation for paying its employees well. The chain also has a generous benefits package. And by allowing their employees to have major holidays, including July 4, off, it undoubtedly will help it keep its employees longer than other stores.

So if you have a burning desire to visit Costco on the Fourth of July, just hang on one more day. The store reopens on Monday, July 5, 2021.
