Members of the military, veterans, and their family members will be able to scoop up deals at a private early opening Saturday, March 24, at more than 100 Costco stores nationwide, and you don’t have to be a store member.

The normally membership-only stores are honoring those who have served with an exclusive shopping “Military Hour” event that will include a private early opening, food samples, and freebies. The first 100 people at each store will receive a special goodie bag, according to a release.

Although vets and service members do not have to be a Costco member to attend, a membership is required to purchase anything from the store. A special military membership is also being offered online.

The store announced the event on its Facebook page and is answering further questions as well as getting some nice compliments from vets and families for hosting the event.

People who wish to attend the event must RSVP online and show their military ID before entering the store.
