Concord Costco Pulls Out the Zamboni in the Icy Parking Lot

December 11, 2013 15:45 pm · 19 comments



In a bit of a surprise move, Costco fixed their icy parking lot with a zamboni. Yes, Concord Costco has a zamboni machine on standby.

Everybody should have a zamboni on standby.

Be prepared, Claycordians, be prepared. Now that we pretty much live in Alaska, you never know when you’ll need one.

Thanks to TJ for the pictures!

I think they are just preparing to close the Concord Costco and convert it to a Sharks Ice Rink with a giant Olive Garden inside for good measure…

Having grown up in Minnesota, where it really gets cold, I would hardly say we “pretty much live in Alaska”, but I understand the joke.

Native Californians don’t realize how lucky they have it.

Not so smart spraying water on a frozen parking lot.

@Kieth, Native Californians know how good
we have it, we just wish no one else had found

@J #7 I thought that I was the only one thinking that. If they didn’t put anything in the water to reduce the freeze point they will create more ice.

“Alaska?!!!” ….Just two weeks ago This part of Monument was Northern Mexico!

The only Native californians are the amerindians. So..

Do they rent ice skates there too? Parking lot ice rink sounds like fun.

I see they freed the Zamboni from the bilge of sunvalley mall.

Floor scrubber in the parking lot. This is the problem with Christmas help. ;)

The funny thing is that as cold as it has been in the bay area over the past week, most people in other parts of the country would consider this to be a mild heat wave…

But be careful. I bet some of the concord riff raffs will try to steal that zamboni.

Stay classy, Concord!!!!
