The Costco shopping experience is now a global phenomenon, with consumers now able to enjoy the wholesale chain's bulk-shopping discounts and $1.50 hot dogs across the U.S. and in places like Taiwan, Japan and Australia.

The company continues to shake up that experience, too. Not only does it manufacture many of its own goods under the Kirkland Signature brand, but it recently began selling gold bars.
