Costco Wholesale Corporation, known as Costco is an American multinational, which is one of the largest wholesale retailers in the world. Its biggest competitor is Walmart. The company operates hundreds of warehouse formats club around the world. As of 2019, Costco has over 770 warehouses worldwide, including the ones in the US and 28 stores in the United Kingdom.
The history of Costco began when Sol Price and his son, Robert Price, came up with their retail warehouse concept. In 1976, they opened the first warehouse in a converted airplane hangar in San Diego, California. They called it “Price Cub”, which is known as #401 and is still in operation today. In 1983, they opened the first Costco warehouse in Seattle. The company decided to give tremendous buying power to small businesses because they predicted that it would eventually promote growth. They kept the costs down and passed the savings on to the customers by offering the lowest possible prices.
The decision was correct, the company reached $3 billion in sales in only a few years. In 1993, Costco and Price Club merged and became PriceCostco. The company had 206 locations in total and generated $16 billion in annual sales. The company rebranded the stores to Costco in 1997 and the merger grew rapidly. During the 2017 fiscal year, total sales reached $126.1 billion. The company's worldwide headquarters are located in Issaquah, Washington.
