SIMPLISITY: THE NEW VALUE PROPOSITION : SIMPLISITY: THE NEW VALUE PROPOSITION RETAIL: COSTCO VS. SAM’S CLUB : RETAIL: COSTCO VS. SAM’S CLUB “Costco's motivated employees also sell more: $795 of sales per square foot, vs. only $516 at Sam's and $411 at BJ's Wholesale Club Inc. (BJ ), its other primary club rival.” Business Week, APRIL 12, 2004 “The other problem was that Sam's didn't cater to the higher class of people that Costco did. Now, Jim has done a pretty damned remarkable job. He puts a great emphasis on quality and has moved into the food business and other new lines. We [the Prices] were very good at creating, but Jim was very good at developing.“ “A sure way to attract and keep customers is by selling goods on the cheap that they didn't expect to see. That's why racks of fine wine have been installed, as well as books ranging from best-selling novels to fairy tales. Those are in addition to Sam's ace: amassing and selling, at bargain prices, items people need most.” “Costco is used to making high-end goods available to its shoppers, most with annual household incomes topping $75,000. Items such as Mont Blanc's platinum Generations pen go for $98.99. Then, there's the Omega Constellation women's watch for $2,199.99.” FINANCIAL SERVICES: ING DIRECT VS. BANK ONE : FINANCIAL SERVICES: ING DIRECT VS. BANK ONE FINANCIAL SERVICES: ING DIRECT VS. BANK ONE : FINANCIAL SERVICES: ING DIRECT VS. BANK ONE “ING Direct's products are straightforward: mortgages and home-equity loans, a half-dozen mutual funds, and CDs and savings accounts that pay some of the highest rates available. There are no fees or minimums. Customers can manage their accounts online, by phone, or by mail. In just two-and-a-half years, ING Direct has attracted more than a million customers and $10 billion in assets, shifting from startup mode to being one of the 50 biggest banks in the country. New assets are streaming in at a rate of close to $500 million a month. ING Direct, based in Wilmington, Delaware (but a division of the Amsterdam-based ING Group), had expected to lose $37 million in 2002. Instead, it turned a profit of $40 million.” FAST COMPANY, March 2003, Page 110 By: Scott Kirsner, RESTAURANTS: SHABUSEN VS. YOUR LOCAL BUFFET : RESTAURANTS: SHABUSEN VS. YOUR LOCAL BUFFET “As Vancouver is well known for its sushi, this place is one of my faves.It has an all you can eat sushi variety, as well as all the teriyaki and they even have meat that you can bbq in the center of your table, on a little sunken bbq. Usually very busy, as it is very popular.Reasonably priced, and friendly serving staff. Also of mention, is the second floor viewing of the hustle and bustle of the streets down below, for those of you who like to people watch.” Source: Reviews: "The best Japanese All-You-Can-Eat anywhere! “ "I eat at Shabusen on a weekly basis and don't mind the half hour drive to eat their sushi. All-you-can-eat menu is available, with bbq at each table or hot pot. Prices are reasonable and service is very fast and friendly. Newly renovated with pleasant decor. They are very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, reservations are recommended. I highly recommend this restaurant! A+ “ - Theresa O ( (April 15th 2003, COMPUTERS: COMPAQ X1000 VS. OTHER LAPTOPS : COMPUTERS: COMPAQ X1000 VS. OTHER LAPTOPS Member rating:Just bought the X for my wife. Set up our first wireless network and everything went well. The widescreen is fabulous to look at and the notebook very easy to use. […] We got the 1.3 and seems to be as fast as my p4 2.5 desktop. For most people the WXGA screen will be good enough, max res of 1280. […] Anyway first notebook and really loving it. Member rating:This computer truly represents a new age in mobile computing. It is incredibly fast, on battery power it lasts twice as long as any other computer I have owned, the screen in bright and accurate, as a multimedia / entertainment computer few will top it, and for all it offers, it is remarkably thin and light. Go to a store that has an X1000 and other notebooks on display. Notice how the crowd gathers around the Compaq. There is good reason for that.,1759,1202339,00.asp WINNER PRODUCTS HAVE A LOT IN COMMON : WINNER PRODUCTS HAVE A LOT IN COMMON Straightforward, simple product offering.
