Juarez Costco Not Making Cakes To Reduce Use of Natural Gas
The winter storm may be over, but our friends on the other side of the border still trying to recuperate. As a result of the natural gas shortage in Texas- it's now created a problem in Juarez directly affecting businesses. Places like restaurants and stores like Soriana are cutting back on prepared food as a means to save natural gas- and now we're learning that Costco will stop making cakes and other baked good.
Maybe this means less fights in the parking lot? If you're not sure what that refers to, let me remind you of December 2020. If you're a fan of watching people fight during the holidays then this special treat is for you. A brawl erupted in the parking lot of the Costco in Juarez, just before Christmas, that ended up making the rounds on social media and the local news both in Juarez and El Paso.
At the time I thought to myself "seriously, what are in these Costco cakes?!" What actually had happened, according to KVIA, the fight between customers and Costco employees erupted after a group waited several hours to enter the store to purchase said cakes, but were then prevented by employees and police officers to enter the store.
The store had put a limit on the number of cakes shoppers could purchase since many of the shoppers were upset that some of the Costco members were only stocking up on the cakes to resell them at higher prices later. KVIA says an attorney for Costco was able to negotiate with the group and allowed them to go into the store and purchase their cakes.
The good news here is that Costco does plan to continue making the cakes once the shortage in Texas is sorted. However, no guarantee that fights in the parking lot won't happen!
