Kraven Posted December 30, 2013 Share Posted December 30, 2013 Interesting article on Sol Price. He founded Price Club, the precursor to today's big warehouse stores like Costco and Sam's Club. He merged Price Club into Costco in the early 90's. http://news.investors.com/123013-684527-sol-price-pioneered-big-box-retailing.htm?ven=yahoocp,yahoo&src=aurlled&p=4 I remember when Price Club had only been around a few years. It was such a revolutionary concept. I remember at the time people used to always say things like who would want to buy an industrial size jar of spaghetti sauce or 3 tubes of toothpaste at one time. Pretty soon everyone wanted to. My dad used to go all the time. He was a big Tab drinker and cases of Tab would be stacked in the garage. At the time Price Club was the only place one could buy that kind of stuff. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
