Costco Opens First Store In France

American retailer Costco has opened its first French store this week in Villebon-sur-Yvette, northern France, reports Le Monde.

The new warehouse store features around 3,800 wholesale products, 500 of which are devoted to luxury brands. Customers pay an annual fee to become a member, and consequently prices are between 20% to 40% lower than in standard supermarkets.

"It's a form of revolution, because Costco comes with methods that are no longer practiced in France - few products, almost no service and no theatre, but much lower prices," retail specialist Olivier Dauvers told LCI.
