Costco surpassed the $100-billion mark in sales for the first time ever in 2013 as the bulk retailer benefitted from a bump in membership fees. In addition to 6% sales growth, the company — which sells everything from food to clothing, gas and even home and auto insurance — also saw a 19.3% bump in profits last year. That growth came amid continued expansion as the retailer opened a dozen warehouses across the U.S. and several more overseas. The company is also moving ahead with a push into continental Europe in 2014, when it plans to launch its first stores in Spain.
