Customer service numbers are through the roof in comparison to most major stores, all varieties. By keeping the employees on the team, and teaching them to understand the customers' needs, they are locking that position down tightly. This ensures very loyal customers and employees. It's how their name recognition will be lined up with Coca Cola, Disney, Amazon, etc.

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.

This company has become a trend and a way of life.
People like the convenience of bulk with value.
Global expansion as well as domestic adds more memberships which is a huge part of it revenue for profit.
The company is well run and has the best employee benefits with the morale.

I think opening a COST in Poland will be a step in the right direction.

COST earns more than 85% of its operating profit from membership fees, not product profits. And because of this, the company has deepened its moat as a defense against other membership clubs. With performance which far surpasses its principal competitors BJS and Sam's Club (subsidiary of WMT), future prospects appear positive. More penetration in overseas markets bodes well for future revenue and profit growth. If any weakness is apparent on the horizon, it is potential market saturation---COST already is in close proximity to more than 90% of the US population.

At 149.54 a share, I do not think that this stock will go much higher for me, but I salute WMT. Rock on...
