I hate showing my membership card at the door every time I enter the store. I am a mother of three and my kids are usually with me. I can't be bothered to flash my card at the door. I need to show my card to purchase my order anyway.
I stopped a manager and explained my frustration and get his explanation. By checking the membership at the door we can assure only members get in. So what? If you didn't have a card they would turn you away? No, they are going to invite you in to look around. You can buy items without a membership anyway, you just pay more.
Next, he tells me they check the cards because they don't want to frustrate the members. If a non-member checked out and didn't realize they needed a card, it would hold up the cashiers line, because the cashier would need to empty the items off of the belt that the non-member was trying to purchase. Are you serious?
This is a *** policy! I am the member so they should cater to me! After all. I paid for it!
