Costco, all the offers at your fingertips

Operating a chain of membership-only warehouse club stores, Costco is committed to providing a rich range of supermarket goods in addition to an ever-changing selection of other merchandise (including luxury goods) to meet all customers’ unique needs.

About Costco

Costco has been making an excellent profit since its early days, and it’s (in part) thanks to its annual membership fees (which generated the company an incredible $3.35 billion in 2019). Thanks to this operating strategy, Costco can sell goods (both in-store and for online shopping) at lower prices than competitors.

Its reputation for offering high-quality products at affordable prices is also evident in its name: Costco, or ‘Cost Company’, making it clear that this brand is focused on helping customers manage their spending more appropriately.


The history of Costco

Costco’s roots can be traced back to 1976, when Sol Price and his son Robert opened the first Price Club warehouse in California, giving birth to a fresh new concept: the retail warehouse club. After the first Costco opened (in Seattle) in 1983, the brand merged with The Price Company, becoming PriceCostco. This led to the company offering universal memberships so Costco members could also shop at Price Club – and vice versa.

In 1993, the Costco wholesale club model, as well as several stores, was introduced to the UK. Only a year later, the Price brothers exited the company to form PriceSmart. And in 1997, Costco was rebranded as Costco Wholesale Corporation, with all remaining Price Club locations renamed as Costco. Two years later the current company name was adopted, followed by a slew of Costco stores opening internationally in the US, Mexico, Europe, Australia, etc.

Costco was named the fifth largest retailer in the world in 2020.
