Wholesale Club is a chain of warehouse clubs owned by Loblaw Companies with locations across Canada. Unlike its main competitor Costco, the stores are open to the public and do not require a membership to make purchases.
The chain was previously named The Real Canadian Wholesale Club, a reference to Loblaw's hypermarket banner Real Canadian Superstore (both banners originated in Western Canada).
