  Costco Wholesale Corp. vs Discount, Variety Stores

Costco Wholesale Corp. operates membership warehouses based on the concept that offering members very low prices on a limited selection of nationally branded and selected private label products in a wide range of merchandise categories will produce high sales volumes and rapid inventory turnover. This rapid inventory turnover enables Costco to operate profitably at significantly lower gross margins than traditional wholesalers, discount retailers and supermarkets.

Companies in this category cater mostly to fixed-income and lower income families. With their common thread being they offer either bulk goods at a discount or lower quality, less expensive goods. Their stores include warehouse clubs, closeout chains, book superstores and home improvement warehouses that may have silk flowers, frames, pottery, and party supplies. The discounts usually come from their "warehouse" approach where the company buys the product in bulk and since the consumer also buys in bulk, they're able to save some money.
