Costco Wholesale's Comment on Competitors and Industry Peers


Our industry is highly competitive, based on factors such as price, merchandise quality and selection, location and customer service. We compete with warehouse club operations across the U.S. and Mexico (primarily Wal-Mart’s Sam’s Club and BJ’s Wholesale Club), and nearly every major metropolitan area has multiple club operations. In addition, we compete on a worldwide basis with global, national and regional wholesalers and retailers, including supermarkets, supercenters, department and specialty stores, gasoline stations, and internet retailers. Competitors such as Wal-Mart, Target, Kohl’s and Amazon.com are among our significant general merchandise retail competitors. We also compete with operators selling a single category or narrow range of merchandise, such as Lowe’s, Home Depot, Office Depot, PetSmart, Staples, Kroger, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, CVS, Walgreens, and Best Buy.
