Whatever Black Friday may bring, it seems likely that the biggest retailers will continue to do so through the holidays.
Costco (NASDAQ: COST) stock has been a longtime favorite of investors. Costco can offer consistently low prices, too, which has helped it gain market share through a wide range of industry selling conditions -- including the recent pandemic-related disruptions. The COVID-19 pandemic has scrambled demand trends in the retailing world, but the disruption hasn't changed much about Costco's steady leadership position.
BJ's Wholesale (NYSE: BJ) has long remained a struggling retailer overshadowed by larger peers such as Costco and Walmart's Sam's Club. Although founded at about the same time as Costco, BJ's has not seen as much growth as its West Coast-based peer. Costco covers nearly every U.S. state and operates warehouses on four continents.
