According to some of the staff who work at Costco Wholesale Corp., their super-sized wholesale club concept brand, "Costco Extra", will be introduced with 300 stores opening around all of 2013, and approx. 300 more stores on the way each year after that, beginning in 2014. The following "Costco Extra" stores opening anywhere in the U.S. market each and every year will be 100 new stores, 100 relocated stores, and 100 expanded stores (all of them will each have 10,000 items, instead of either 4,000 or 5,000 items). The 10,000 items finally carrying in "Costco Extra" stores will be 5,000 food items and 5,000 non-food items, plus the "garden center", "portrait studio", "local bank-based ATM machine", and all features from Costco's traditional wholesale club concept. In addition, "Costco Extra" stores, when being introduced in January 1, 2013 (just 30 years after Costco's traditional wholesale club concept was introduced), will have two entrances instead of only one.

Wal-Mart will introduce their "Sam's Club Extra" super-sized wholesale club concept with 10,000 items carried each store (5,000 food items and 5,000 non-food items), plus the "garden center", "portrait studio", "local bank-based ATM machine", and all features from the traditional "Sam's Club" store concept. The 300 Sam's Club Extra stores opening each year will be 100 new stores, 100 relocated stores, and 100 expanded stores, just like their competitor Costco (whose super-sized wholesale club concept is becoming called "Costco Extra"). According to some of the staff who work at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., the "Sam's Club Extra" brand will be introduced around January 1, 2013, just like their competitor Costco's super-sized wholesale club concept, the "Costco Extra" brand.

What we need is a Costco in the Daytona, Port orange or New Smyrna Beach area..... right now the closest Costco to the east coast of central Florida is Orlando area ( about 45 miles from here) Please do your research and see if it warrents a store in this area.
THANK YOU

The New England area needs Costco. They have Sams Club, but they need some healthy competion. Boston area and Canada is the closest Costco that can be found. I love Costco, but have to travel hundreds of miles to get even close to one. Make New England your next Building project. They have long winters, and great summers for big purchase items, ie. lake toys... Don't let WalMart and Sams Club monopolize this area. We need you! From Maine all the way down the coast.

I am doing a survey that has to do with major corporations like Costco competing with small convenience stores. Can you please take my survey?
