warehouse club

(redirected from Warehouse clubs)

Warehouse Club

A retail store where one may buy goods at or close to wholesale prices. Warehouse clubs are often actual warehouses (or are at least made to look like them); they have little decoration and goods are stored and sold in large quantities. Many warehouse clubs require annual membership fees, which help to keep prices low. They began in their modern form in the 1970s but have their origins in other discount stores.
