Costco launching inventory search feature June 2024

Costco shoppers have long been asking for an easy way to check which products are in stock at different warehouses. This week, their wish has finally come true.

On June 24, Costco released an exciting new app update (Version 24.6.3) that lets you check product availability right from your phone. Now, you can quickly see what’s in stock at your local Costco without having to make a trip to the store. This update makes shopping more convenient and helps you plan your trips better. These are the key features of the new update:

  • Check Product Availability: Instantly see which items are in stock at various Costco warehouses.
  • User-Friendly Interface: Easy to navigate and use, even if you’re not tech-savvy.
  • Real-Time Updates: Get the most accurate and up-to-date information on product availability.

How to Use the New Inventory Search Feature:

  1. Update the App: Make sure you have the latest version (24.6.3) of the Costco app.
  2. Open the App: Launch the Costco app on your phone.
  3. Search for Products: Use the search bar to find the items you need.
  4. Check Availability: See which nearby warehouses have the products in stock.

This new feature is a game-changer for Costco shoppers, making it easier than ever to get what you need when you need it. 

Costco’s New App Update: Find In-Stock Items at Your Local Warehouse with Ease

“In this update, app users will see a newly designed Warehouse tab with an exciting new feature: Inventory on Hand. This feature lets members search for product availability at their local Costco warehouse,” according to the update’s description.

This is a big deal for Costco. Until now, shoppers had to visit the store in person or call their local Costco to find out if a specific item was in stock. Many Costco fans have expressed their frustration about not having an inventory search feature.

Costco’s Long-Awaited Inventory Search Feature: Shoppers Still Waiting for Full Rollout

“Why doesn’t Costco offer online inventory checks for specific stores? Even Walmart has this feature. You can look up a specific item in a specific store to see if it’s in stock. It’s ridiculous that a trillion-dollar company, known for being meticulous, doesn’t offer this,” a frustrated shopper complained on Reddit in 2020.

Perhaps in response to these complaints, Costco has been hinting at plans to add an inventory search feature since last year. In a March earnings call, executives announced they were just a few months away from launching the feature, but they didn’t provide an exact date.

While this week’s app update is good news, shoppers are still waiting for the inventory search feature to appear. Despite downloading the update, many customers report that their apps still don’t show the new way to check inventory.

Key Points:

  • Costco’s online inventory checks are overdue, according to frustrated shoppers.
  • The company, valued at trillions, faces criticism for this oversight.
  • Executives have hinted at upcoming changes since last year.
  • The long-awaited feature may not be fully available yet, despite recent app updates.

This approach highlights customer frustration, emphasizes Costco’s commitment to improvement, and underscores the current status of the feature rollout.

Members Report Mixed Results with Costco’s New Inventory Search Feature

“I updated my Costco app on iOS, but I’m not seeing the promised ‘Inventory on Hand’ feature in the warehouse tab,” shared one Redditor.

“I just updated, and despite the version notes claiming a new feature, I’m not noticing any changes in the warehouse tab,” echoed another user.

After downloading the latest Costco app update, I too, couldn’t find a new way to check inventory at my local warehouse. Costco hasn’t responded to our inquiries about why some members aren’t seeing the feature yet. Despite this, members should stay vigilant as the update suggests the new search function is currently rolling out.
