What is the Warehouse Clubs & Supercenters Industry?

This industry includes large stores that primarily retail a general line of grocery products, along with merchandise items (e.g. apparel and appliances). Warehouse clubs offer customers a wide selection of goods, often in bulk, at discounted prices, in exchange for a membership fee paid by each customer. Supercenters are large discount department stores that also sell perishable groceries. However, unlike warehouse clubs, supercenters do not have membership requirements for customers.
