Costco vs. Sam's Club: What's the Difference?

Costco vs. Sam's Club: What's the Difference?

Big retailers like Walmart Inc. (WMT) and Target Corp. (TGT) use low prices to draw in customers, but this is not a model that works for everyone. Other retailers must find different ways to drive consumers to their businesses. We see those that focus on healthy foods, locally grown or made products, specialty niche stores, those that only carry high-end brands, those that only carry low-end brands, and in the case of Costco Wholesale Corp. (COST) and Walmart unit Sam’s Club, those that only sell in bulk. Costco is considered the original bulk retailer.
