Costco claims economics are the reason for the end of its partnership with American Express. Bob Nelson, vice president of investor relations for Costco:
Everything comes down to cost and saving money for our members, and that’s what it’s all about. In general, things come down to economics.
A Costco employee stabs another fellow employee before the store opens for business on Black Friday in Nanuet, N.Y. The incident occurs in the store restroom and the victim is cut across the face with a box cutter. Police:
The victim was taken to the hospital and is undergoing surgery. The two workers had an argument last week that led to Friday’s attack.
