Say it ain’t so! It’s just been announced that Costco is ending its free sample program and, not going to lie, we’re incredibly bummed. Costco and free samples go together like peanut butter and jelly so it feels like the end of an era.

According to Red Flag Deals, this new change is due to the coronavirus global health emergency.

Because it’s due to Coronavirus, there’s no word on whether or not the bulk retailer’s free sample program will be reinstated when it’s eventually, and hopefully, blown over.

Costco’s free samples have already been put on pause at locations across the U.S. in states like Florida, California, and Washington State.

Free samples aren’t the only things you’ll have trouble finding at Costco. According to USA Today, the retailer is struggling to keep items like bottled water, disinfectants, and other critical supplies, like toilet paper, on store shelves.
