The nightmare is over for Americans who use warehouse club Costco to fuel their copious Coke habits. The retailer and Coca-Cola have settled their price differences, and Coca-Cola beverages will return to Costco stores on Monday.
“We can confirm that Coca-Cola products will continue to be listed at Costco,” Coca-Cola spokesman Scott Williamson said. “Our program aligns Coca-Cola’s brand and package offerings with the needs of Costco’s members in a way that is fair and equitable for both Costco and Coca-Cola.”
Costco serves both consumers and smaller retailers, who use the store for buying in bulk. The holidays are important for Coca-Cola because it’s a staple at many events, parties and family gatherings.
That’s good. Warehouse club shoppers were beginning to suffer dangerously low blood high fructose corn syrup levels.
