Costco is morphing into mega retail strata with the acceptance, as of April 1, 2016, of CREDIT for the first time in it's storied history. Other than Winco Foods, a regional retail grocery chain, I can not think of another major retailer that does NOT accept credit cards. It was an integral part of the original business model and they eventually entered into a hybrid CHARGE card with Am Ex which ends on March 30, 2016. In the past few months I have shopped Costco stores and walked the aisles looking at carts...CREDIT is going to be a game changer. By Jan 2017 the stock will be $550 per share and rising.

One only has to shop at Costco to feel the energy of this company. No one wants to work for a bad company, and Costco has created a work atmosphere dedicated to paying workers well and appreciating their efforts.

best retailer I've seen, excellent merchandiser, less than 700 stores, great growth potential, reasonably priced versus growth prospects

Call me crazy but one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday afternoon is make my Costco run. It's great people watching, especially at the samples. This is where the weak doesn't get to eat.

As for the business, Costco has done an excellent job ensuring customers, employees, vendors, and the community are taken care of. WalMart is just now starting to re-figure out the value of a quality retail employee as they are raising wages. However, Costco has long understood that above-average wages and respect to employees = lower turnover = less training = more productivity = larger bottom-line impact.

Vendors do what they can to get on a Costco shelf and customers keep coming back with consistent ~90% retention rates. The strength of their moat is confirmed by Amazon's inability to significantly impacted their business. Costco has big-box retail figured out and will grow for years to come.
