About Costco Wholesale Canada Ltd., The Costco Story
In less than two decades, Costco has transformed the retail world. The Costco story begins in 1976, when entrepreneur Sol Price introduced a ground-breaking retail concept in San Diego, California. Price Club was the world’s first membership warehouse club, a place where efficient buying and operating practices gave members access to unmatched savings.
Over the next decade, both Price Club and Costco Wholesale continued to innovate and grow, and in 1993, the two mega-retailers merged, creating a gifted leadership team that soon made Costco the world’s most successful warehouse club.
Today, as the company evolves, it stays true to the qualities that helped attract and retain millions of loyal members around the globe: commitment to quality, entrepreneurial spirit, and employee focus.
Costco serves more than 10 million members across Canada, and is one of the nation’s largest retailers, averaging CDN$15 billion in sales per year.
