Costco reports decrease in March comp sales
ISSAQUAH, Wash. — Costco has reported a dip in same-store sales for the month of March.
Same-store sales decreased 2% for the total company and were flat in the United States.
For the five weeks ended April 5, net sales were $10.4 billion compared with $10.43 billion during the similar period last year. This year's total reflects one less sales day than last year, due to the timing of Easter. This calendar shift negatively impacted this year's net and comparable sales by an estimated 1% to 1.5% percent.
