What Is A Club? $149.00

2014 Edition

The principle operators in the warehouse club industry are BJís Wholesale, Cost-U-Less, Costco Wholesale, PriceSmart and Samís Club. These five companies follow the basic warehouse club principles developed by Sol and Robert Price, who founded the warehouse club industry when they opened the first Price Club in San Diego, California in 1976 (the picture on the right is of that first Price Club location on Morena Boulevard).

However, those five warehouse club operators have adapted the basic concepts for todayís retail environment. This white paper provides an overview of the key characteristics of a warehouse club in 2014.
