If your relatives haven't signed up for a Costco membership yet, now is the time. Shoppers who purchase a year-long Gold membership will receive a $30 Costco gift card. It's one of the better sign-up deals out there, especially when you consider Costco might raise membership prices later this year.
Better pricing, effective inventory management and operational initiatives should drive Retail-Discount Stores companies. Costco (COST), The TJX Companies (TJX), Target (TGT) and Burlington Stores (BURL) look well placed. However, inflation and lingering supply chain issues remain concerns.
