What is the Warehouse Clubs & Supercentres Industry?

This industry is made up of large stores that primarily retail a general line of grocery products and merchandise items (e.g. apparel). Warehouse clubs offer customers a wide selection of merchandise (often in bulk), at discounted prices, in exchange for a membership fee that is paid by each customer. Supercentres are large discount department stores that also sell perishable groceries. Unlike warehouse clubs, however, supercentres do not have eligibility requirements for customers.
