At 159,000 square feet, the Costco Wholesale store in Tustin, Calif., is one of the chain’s largest. It also ranks 27th in terms of sales.
Food takes up one-third of the store’s footprint but accounts for 50% of sales. Fresh foods and the store’s 22 gas pumps are what draw customers to the store, according to general manager Rick Borgens.
