I cannot independently confirm the accuracy of this story but it comes from a well trusted friend. It is my wish that repeating it may cause someone with the means to investigate further to research.
When an individual attempted to purchase Dinesh D'Souza's book "America" at a San Diego County Costco, the following scenario occurred. There were none on the shelf and she asked an employee if any were available. He pulled her aside and told her to please not reveal that he told her but that Costco was perpetuating a huge fraud on consumers.
He further explained that the book shipment and been rejected by the store and showed her the paperwork illustrating such. According to the employee, all workers were warned that even speaking to a customer about the book would cause them to be fired. In other words, Costco had no intention of restocking the books.
The employee added that when they did have them in stock, they flew off the shelves.
It seems almost unbelievable but then again............not really.
Maybe a Freeper has experienced something similar or knows how to verify this story. I'm guessing it would be all stores; not just one.
they’ll probably pull it. And it was #2 in its genre on NYT Bestsellers list two days ago.
I, my friends, every one I’ve spoken with re this fiasco, has told Costco they’re not renewing and why.
Now that Costco only has one table of books but America was on the left end.
Hilary's book was not in evidence.
Interesting and good to hear.
Gee, must have sold out. /s
Stopped by the local Costco in Parker, CO, last night, and America was prominently displayed.
I find this hard to believe. Costco has stocked Glenn Beck books, Sarah Palin’s books, and other conservative books.
I was in Costco in Carson City, NV two weeks ago and heard an uproar in the book section as a group of about six or seven men and women complained to the man stocking books. They asked why there were no copies of “America” but dozens of Hillery’s books on display. He told them that he didn’t work for Costco, but was just an independent book stocker and told them that the book might be in soon.
My wife and I were in the Burbank,CA Costco and the book was not on the shelves . I turned all of Hil’s books upside down.
LOL! Way to go. ;-)
I saw Hillary’s book for sale at TJ Maxx.
Doesn’t really matter to me, i also have a BJ’s wholesale Club card.
I am all done with Costco.
I read that the big 0 is heading to a former Costco CEO’s house for yet another fundraiser.
I love it!!!
Hillary’s book is on the “Sale” rack at Sam’s in our area. And it is still not selling!
I believe this, though I have no further details about this particular incident.
They did the same thing to Rush and to Savage (though I don’t listen to the latter).
For libs, this type of chicanery substitutes for activism. Or they think it IS activism.
It can happen SO low on the totem pole as to be legally unactionable.
For this reason whenever I’m at a news-stand I do borrow a page from the Lefties, and I leave NR or American Spectator sitting on the face of The Nation, or Ms., or Rolling Stone, or whatever.
Do follow my lead.
I do, just this week I put a copy of Guns and Ammo on top of a copy of Rolling Stone.
My Costco membership expires at the end of this month and I will not be renewing it. I already purchased my Sam’s Club membership through Groupon
Wait until it hits the $2.00 table and it will be a good price for prepper toilet paper .... all 700 odd pages of potential a$$wipe.
A guy called the Howie Carr show (MA) today and he works at a Costco. He said that D’Souza’s book is selling well and they’re pulling Hillary’s book off the shelves because it not on the book lists anymore (and it wasn’t selling). Haha
