Retail Focus 12/21/18 – Costco’s Margins; the State of Dairy in Retail; Designing a New Grocery Store

We begin with Costco, whose earnings call revealed continued growth but was not up to analyst expectations by the slimmest of margins. Additionally, we talk a notable purchase in the pet retail space and the state of dairy in retail stores in 2018.
