Costco Wholesale Corporation Reports January Sales Results

ISSAQUAH, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Costco Wholesale Corporation ("Costco" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: COST) today reported net sales of $9.35 billion for the month of January, the five weeks ended February 3, 2013, an increase of seven percent from $8.74 billion during the similar period last year. This year's period contained one less day compared to last year, due to the timing of the New Year's holiday, which negatively impacted total and comparable sales by approximately 2%.

For the first twenty-two weeks of its fiscal year ended February 3, 2013, the Company reported net sales of $43.77 billion, an increase of nine percent from $40.18 billion during the similar period last year.

Comparable sales for the five-week and 22-week periods ended February 3, 2013, were as follows:


                                            5 Weeks     22 Weeks
                                         ------------ ------------

          U.S.                                3%           6%
          International                       5%           7%

          Total Company                       4%           6%
                                         ============ ============

Changes in gasoline prices had a slightly negative impact for the five-week period and a slightly positive impact for the 22-week period. Stronger foreign currencies had a positive impact for both periods. Excluding these effects, comparable sales were as follows:


                                            5 Weeks     22 Weeks
                                         ------------ ------------

          U.S.                                4%           6%
          International                       3%           5%

          Total Company                       4%           5%
