Joe Biden has a Costco card? Who knew?
The vice president
flashed his Costco bona fides Thursday, as he helped the discount
retailer at the grand opening of its first store in Washington, D.C.
Costco CEO Craig Jelinek greeted Biden before his shopping spree, as did company co-founder Jim Sinegal.
The visit is also part of the administration's effort to encourage consumer spending this holiday season.
Christmas appeared to be high on Biden's list, as he picked out books and other gift-like items.
