      Sam's Club. Wonderful meat at great prices. Fantastic bakery. I can't get that quality anywhere else, especially at Walmart, which is definitely a step down in product quality. Also, I've never had a problem with employees in Sam's Club. I used to be a Costco member, but I don't remember much about it other than the fact that all the quantities were huge.

    "Sibling rivalry..."Yeah, the Sam's that closed near me was in the same lot as Walmart; it was a smaller location; AND there's a Target in the next lot; lots of food stores nearby...But everyone was shocked that it closed; it was always busy over there.

    If Sam’s club thinks that serving the minority of the population is the right move they are clearly moving in the wrong direction.

    When you pay for membership at $50. Plus and find a product for less at another store you wonder why I purchased a membership. Re vamping for a customer who makes more money is insane. But what do I know. When I can get a box of beef at 30% less why would I be shopping at Sam's club? If I can get better quality at another store at the same price, why not.
    I hope someone from Walmart/ Sam's club reads and listens to this, I don't have a fancy degree from any school but I know that they're killing off the Sam's club line by not listening to the consumer, just like Walmart. When a company listens to the consumer they thrive better. Mr. Walton and I had a chat about this while fishing one afternoon. He said quality, price and pride make for a perfect fit in doing business.
    Going back to old school ways would bring in a lot more business. Over working employees is another problem with the company. Everyone is starting to see the greed of the company as well. I can go on for days as to what is wrong but is anyone going to listen to me, I think not. Sam's club and Walmart need to change the image and attitude of the way they do things quick or it's lights out and the doors are closed.

    The business transformation line at the end is total B.S. Walmarts and sams club moved in with lower prices selling crappy foreign goods and now that they have shut down the small business' in their areas they can raise prices or as the b.s. you were led to believe, sell better quality goods. Higher dollar items carry a higher profit margin when there is a standard markup so they are just making more.

    Costco and Sams Club are both near my house. I have been to both and the layout, product location, size of store, sections of product, uniforms, storefront, and food court is copy and paste. I forget which store I am in half the time. I think I am in Costco, and then I walk out to the Sams Club parking lot and vise versa. I always thought they were the same company as Costco with just a different name like Carls Jr and Hardys

    The problem with Sam's Club is almost everything is cheaper at Wal-Mart. Yes the big can of Del Monte vegetables cost less per oz at Sam's compared to Wal-Mart but the WM Great Value brand of everything cost less per oz/unit than Sam's. And anyone with any financial savviness knows that WM store brands are spot on comparable to name brand. There are only a few things we still buy at Sam's that is actually cheaper and that is meats, cheeses, and laundry detergent.

    Reasons sams club is disappearing:
    1. Lousy hours for a big retailer.
    2. Same or higher prices as other places that dont charge a membership fee have
    3. Constantly discontinuing products so if you find something good, they may not have it later.

    Sam's is very convenient, so I shop there vs. Costco. But Sam's was dumb to focus on small business when small businesses can often get everything they need to operate, plus better prices, plus credit to buy it, from dedicated business distributors who will even deliver it.

    It is real simple, Sams club and Wal mart executives are very greedy. They have destroyed small business's across the nation. Here in Denver Wal mart has the nerve to put new amendments on the ballot so, we as consumers can pay a additional tax on every receipt, this to have a new store erected so Wal mart is not paying for it. I don't feel bad that they will go the route of K mart at some point and close stores down the road.

    I'm a former Sam's Club shopper. whenever I went there, I felt so bad for the employees. It seemed like they were treated terribly. When Costco opened in my area, it was like a breath of fresh air. Not only do I like Costco's products better, but is really a pleasure to shop there. I'll never go back to Sam's Club. Companies, if you want to be successful, treat your employees well.

    Here's an idea. Drop the stupid membership requirement and invite everyone in to shop.


    People need to calm the fuck down about Costco. They aren't your friends and while they offer good shit; in the end they are just out to make money. A business bottom line is Money > You.
    E: Oh yea forgot to mention that you still need to pay a membership fee to even get inside the store. Which by the way keep increasing on occasion! You can't even go past the front "door" without being harassed by them to show your membership card.

    I've had Costco membership for years. I decided to try out Sam's club because there was a promo to basically get a free year's membership. I shopped there twice and never returned. Prices were more expensive than getting them at a local store, but you had to buy bulk. Products were really odd. As this video mentioned, some products were geared towards higher end customers, like organic products, and some were things you would buy at Walmart. I really couldn't find anything there that enticed me to shop there. I asked the customer service rep there what's really good to buy at sam's and she basically laughed and said she doesn't know, maybe water. When I priced out water there, it was about 15% more than Costco for their brand. Also, Costco has a great brand recognition with Kirkland. I know that I'll get a quality product with Kirkland. I don't really trust Sam's brand, especially coming from a company that basically screws over their employees and really the customers for major profits.

    What the hell are people talking about? I have worked for both companies. They both treat their employees like crap, its retail. I think I made a dollar more an hour at Costco but the bonus was better at Sam's so...??? I dont shop at either anymore but when I did about 5 years ago, I liked Sam's better just because it felt less warehouse like. I think its just popular to hate Wal-Mart. Neither have good benefits, both have similar hours and employee scheduling. Oh, and the little snack place in Sam's is the bomb , you cant beat those pretzels.

    Had a sam's sales lady walk into my shop to try selling me a membership. I said sure, give me 40 dollars and we can do business. She thought I was nuts. I said Oh so it's OK for Sam's to charge me to shop there, but you don't like the idea of me charging you to walk in here. Needless to say she got tongue tied and walked out !

    Sam's doesn't compete with Walmart. One store is for anyone who wants to walk in, and the other is a membership bulk store.
    Also, if Sam's had competition with Walmart in such a drastic way like you say, the Parent company wouldn't have put them next to each other.

    And I thought it was BJ's that was stealing their business. LOL. I went in Sam's Club maybe once and that was down in North Carolina. I think what has also hurt Sam's Club was placing them next to a Walmart that's a supercenter. Sam's Club originally started out as a bulk supply store for business owners. As the years passed, they catered to the average Joe and became a bulk grocery store. So placing them next to a Walmart Supercenter, many people would probably chose a Walmart with a full grocery section instead of paying more in bulk. Hope this makes sense.

    I have been a Sam's club member for a long time. What this vid forgets to mention, is I have seen a massive increase in prices of purchasing items in bulk.
    What used to cost like $14 for example, women's razors... those same razors are close to $30 bucks now.
    I was stunned at how high they have become over the years.
    They are their own worst enemy when they pull stunts like that.
    Don't even talk about how exponentially high their jewelry has become. Absolutely insane what their markup for jewelry is.
    Let's also talk about their limits on a variety of ladies fashions and limits on sizes.
    Pull it together, Sam's club.

    As a small business owner, I used to shop at Sam’s club. But no more shopping there.
    The employees are rude and they have no customer service.
    There is racism going on there against Asian customers from the employees.
    The managers even show nasty attitudes to the customers.
    They don’t care. So I don’t care either.
    Whenever I was treated disrespectfully, I prayed Sam’s club should go out of business sooner than later.
    Sam’s club should train their employees how to appreciate people shopping there.
    And if they receive compliments filed by customers they have to immediately respond with solutions.
    But as far as I know they don’t care!!!
    That is why I cancelled my membership.
    Based on what I have experienced, I don’t think Sam’s could survive and they deserve not to
