Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

Companies in this industry operate membership retail stores that sell groceries, health and beauty items, electronics, and other merchandise; the majority of items are sold in large quantities. Major companies include Sam's Club (Wal-Mart); Costco Wholesale; BJ's Wholesale Club; and Meijer (all based in the US). PriceSmart, a US-based company, owns and operates warehouse clubs in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.
