Costco Wholesale Corporation

The average number of sales at Costco has risen in recent years from 139 million U.S. dollars per warehouse in 2010 to 159 million U.S. dollars per warehouse in 2016. Costco Wholesale Corporation is a member-ship only warehouse that sells a variety of products. The first store under the retail warehouse concept began in 1976 under the name Price Club in San Diego, California. This store is still in operation today, known as Costco Warehouse #401. Since then, Costco has branched out into countries around the world. As of 2016, there were 715 stores in the United States and Puerto Rico and 94 stores in Canada. Costco products can only be purchased by members and is also open to its members’ guests. Membership is purchased in advance for a period of one year.

Recently, the chain reached headlines when they refused to open on Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Company spokesperson stated that their employees deserved the opportunity to spend the holiday with their families. Some other chain stores, such as Dillard’s, followed suit rather than following the new trend of starting Black Friday (Friday after Thanksgiving) sales earlier, which many large retail chains in the United States have begun. About 37 percent of U.S. consumers said that it was very likely that they would shop on Black Friday.
