A Fantastic 146 Slide Presentation on Costco


#1

I’m not sure who created the presentation below on Costco, but it’s fantastic.

Costco has 50 million members, and 27% of all US households are cardholders.

For 40 years, Costco has succeeded with a simple formula: reinvest merchandising profits into lower prices and better products; be a disciplined operator; and treat customers and employees well.

While Amazon may not be going away any time soon, that’s okay; because as each quarter of sales, profit, and membership growth shows, neither is Costco.

A very interesting article on Costco’s customer obsession and long-termism.
The price of a hot-dog and soda combo in Costco has remained at $1.50 since 1984.

And when the President of the company wanted to raise prices, this is how Sinegal replied -
"If you raise [the price of] the effing hot dog, I will kill you. Figure it out."
