Costco business centers are also closed on Easter, even though the holiday is not listed on the website here. That page notes that business centers (not warehouses) are typically closed on New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. However, Easter is not on that list. That’s only because Costco’s business centers are always closed on Sundays, according to their website.
A Costco business center is available to any Costco member and there are 15 locations in the US They have items not found in regular Costco stores and large quantities of some grocery items, including a larger selection of beverages. The website states: “More than 70% of the items in Costco Business Center are different than those carried in a Costco warehouse.”
