Ever gone inside Costco? Do you see how huge and how expansive the
whole interiorior operation is? The whole building is basically a
WAREHOUSE which in this case is used like a giant retail store. It's
got FORK LIFTS and endless isles stacked with various products.
Costco is unsafe on the West Coast because in earthquake country a good
shaking will cause tons and tons of crates and boxes of goods to fall
on top of the thousands of customers below them!!! Once this happens
we will see some of the biggest law suits that this Country has yet to
West Coast or earthquake-less midwest. It doesn't matter, I will not
step foot inside a Costco as they stack tons and tons of products so
high up. Just think in the possibility that one of those wooden
breaks like a twig and 500 pounds of junk falls on top of
your head. You would basically be dead when that happens.
Yes, stuff can fall in warehouses without an earthquake too. Those
wooden pallets that hold everything up inside Costco do break
sometimes. That is why they are wood.
Please use good sense and judgement. Everywhere you go.
