Biden stocks up during DC Costco opening

Vice President Biden went to the mecca of bulk goods on Thursday morning — making a pit stop at a just-opened Costco Wholesale store in Washington.

The VP stocked up and filled his cart with children’s books, fire logs, a 32-inch Panasonic television, and an oversized apple pie, according to the White House press pool report.

But Biden’s trip to the membership warehouse chain may not be like your average Joe’s — a staffer manned the grocery cart for him.

Biden did indulge in what’s undoubtedly the best part for many a Costco shopper: the free samples. According to the report, the veep was also seen eyeing the watch counter, at one point looking at a $1,200 timepiece and making a call to his daughter, Ashley, saying he needed to “get some guidance.”
