Costco (Costco Wholesale Corporation) is the biggest warehouse club chain in the world. Costco's main focus is selling products in bulk at low prices. Costco requires member and guest only purchases unless you pay a five percent surcharge. In the US the main competitors to Costco are Sam's Club and BJ's Wholesale Club.

Costco began with an idea for a store called Price Club, which was a warehouse club for businesses only. The first Price Club location was opened in San Diego, California in a modified airplane hangar in 1976. With the success of the Price Club chain, plans began for a consumer version of warehouse stores, and the first Costco was opened in 1983 in Seattle, Washington, and others soon followed. Today, Costco Warehouse is an international chain of warehouse stores, with 582 locations worldwide, 425 of those in the United States and the rest spread over Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and Australia.
