The example used in this article, which seems to have been taken from the Wall Street Journal's original effort (using even the same photos)-- https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-nex...s&page=1&pos=1 --is Sam's Club which has always been a second sister to CostCo because it's hard to differentiate the membership store from the free Walmart stores and because CostCo is just better run. Because Sam's has always been shaky, makes sense to use the real estate to bolster Walmart's so-far quite successful effort to get into e-tailing and eventually compete seriously with Amazon. But I'm not sure the venture generalizes all that widely.
