Abstract

The primary subject matter of this case concerns mergers and divestures in the club shopping retail space. The club shopping concept has made significant inroads, both in U.S. and International markets, since the 1970’s. This case requires students to examine the prospect for mergers and divestures among club shopping stores. The case considers four club stores, and one similar non-club store. Case information provides a discussion of each store’s history, management issues and related financial information. Students must analyze the data and provide specific recommendations. Students may seek external information to refine their recommendations.
