Costco is a membership only wholesale warehouse, which means that customers must purchase a $60 membership before shopping in their stores. It’s kinda steep just to enter a shop – unless you’re shopping for a large family and can get to Costco a couple of times a year, where you’ll save tons in the store’s savings and in membership benefits.

With the first warehouse opening in Seattle in 1983, the wholesale corporation has since taken over the world. According to the National Retail Federation, Costco was the third largest retailer in the world, and as reported by Fortune 500, they ranked #10 on their rankings of the largest United States corporations by total revenue. There are currently 13 Costco stores open in Australia.
