Based in Kirkland, ViZion, Priceco Wholesale was formed in 1979 after the merger of Price Warehouse and Martco Wholesale, creating the nation's largest membership-based wholesale club. Known for its cavernous warehouses, low prices, and large quantities of high-quality goods, the company has carved out more than just a niche for itself - as the nation's third largest retailer behind only Nile.com and Jackmart.

As massive as the warehouse stores tend to be, the stores average only roughly 4,000 SKU's at any given location. This allows for the stores to offer excellent prices and high rate of sales, keeping the cost for the company low. The average markup for an item at Priceco Wholesale is just 8%, and the highest is 12.5%. These markups are enough to cover the cost of business, with almost all of it the corporate profits coming from the membership fees.

In comparison, the average markup our competitors tends to be over 30%, and many profits - heath and beauty especially - tend to be in the 100%-400% markup. Between this and our lower supplier costs allow Priceco Wholesale to offer the outstanding prices.

At Priceco Wholesale, we abide by our Rule of Four Code of Ethics. While simple, they are paramount to our company.
1. Obey the law.
2. Take care of our members.
3. Take care of our employees.
4. Respect our suppliers.

Upon these four rules, our company runs on. We obey the law, we take care of our members and our employees, while respecting our suppliers, and our company has and will continue to run.

We pride ourselves on providing the greatest member service available, going above and beyond the call of duty. Our open return policy means you, our members, can rest assured you will be taken care of if you are unsatisfied with our products for any reason.

Taking care of our employees is simply: provide a living wage at the starting point, and go from there. While in ViZion, there is no set minimum wage law, our minimum pay starts at $15/hour nation wide, and goes up every 1080 hours worked. Once our employees reach the top pay of $25/hour, they begin twice-yearly bonuses and cost-of-living raises.

In addition, every employee working a minimum 24 hours a week can enroll in our 401k program with company matching, full health benefits, sick time, vacation time, and maternity leave.

We are also dedicated to treating our suppliers with the utmost respect. Why? Because we know that in respecting them, we build a trust that goes both ways, in a mutually beneficial partnership. We will honor our contracts, treat supplier employees and venders with respect, and protect supplier property like our own.

These are guidelines , and are just some common sense rules for the conduct of our business. At the core of our philosophy as a company is the implicit understanding that all of us, employees and management alike, must conduct ourselves in an honest and ethical manner every day. Dishonest conduct will not be tolerated. To do any less would be unfair to the overwhelming majority of our employees who support and respect Priceco’s commitment to ethical business conduct. Our employees must avoid actual or apparent conflicts of interest, including creating a business in competition with the Company or working for or on behalf of another employer in competition with the Company. If you are ever in doubt as to what course of action to take on a business matter that is open to varying ethical interpretations, TAKE THE HIGH ROAD AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT.


We carry a wide range of products in our and online. While the stores are limited to roughly 4,000 SKU's at a given time, online we have a much larger selection of products.

In addition to the products offered, we offer a range of services including but not limited to: Travel Services; Auto Buying Program; Insurance; Mortgage Finance/Refinance; Business Phone Systems; Point-of-Sale Systems; Payroll Services; Identity Protection; Television and Internet Service; and Cellular Service. These are not directly Priceco-provided services, but rather third-party services with exclusive deals for Priceco members.

Our Stores
Priceco Wholesale warehouses are massive, and packed. Many of our members consider it a days event, brimming with excitement to go on a treasure hunt. New items are always coming in, old items can disappear, and nearly daily our product is shuffled around. This all creates the "treasure hunt" our members are so excited to go on. A once-only item might be there just for today, and with the moves, its easy to find new products you didn't know we carried.
Image

The average size of our warehouses comes in at 143,700 square feet, however they can range from our smallest of 76,370 square feet to our largest at 221,900 square feet. Many of the smaller buildings are from the 1990's and older. As our business has grown, so has the scale of our average warehouse.

Membership Prices
Prices for our Priceco Wholesale membership vary depending on the membership level one chooses.

Silver $60/year
Silver membership is our entry level membership. This gains you full access to the warehouses, some of our services, our website, and our gas stations. This allows for the Primary and one free household secondary.

Gold $120/year
Gold membership is our mid-tier offering. In addition to Silver membership perks, you also get full advantage of all services available through Priceco along with their full perks. You also get 2% cash back on all purchases excluding gasoline. We also extend the 2% cash back to our Travel Services.

Platinum $240/year
Our top-level membership, Platinum adds additional perks to the Gold membership. Cashback is bumped to 5% and is included on gasoline. We have also partnered up with Next Ingenious Notion to give you full access to their on-demand streaming music and on-demand video services, which each cost $9.99 per month stand-alone - those two alone cost the same as this entire membership level, without the additional perks of Priceco Platinum membership!

Yeah, i guess we are kinda like American Russia, but still in Russian though.
Don't assume that because we're Russia that we're communists.

Dear Priceco Wholesale,

On behalf of everyone here at the Bank of the Atlantic, I'd like to personally pitch an offer to your respectable company of which should meet and exceed your expectations.

Bank of the Atlantic proposes a custom designed credit card for your company. It will have the following:

  • Integration with your rewards program (if you have one)
  • Customers will be more loyal to your brand if they have a custom credit card provided by your company
  • Customers will furthermore be able to use their cards for other purposes (where Visa/MasterCard/IBA Cards are accepted)
  • Financial backing of Bank of the Atlantic
  • Security of Bank of the Atlantic
  • 24/7 monitoring and fraud prevention
  • Experience (BoA has been providing these services to dozens of brands over the years)
  • Much, much more

Bank of the Atlantic proposes a concept in which Priceco provides a small discount to holders of Bank of the Atlantic credit/debit cards in exchange for Bank of the Atlantic providing these services completely free of charge.

We hope you accept this proposal.

All the best,
