The floors are concrete. The beams are exposed. Stuff is stacked on metal shelving or pallets.
That spartan appearance tells consumers we’re bound to get unbelievable deals because warehouse clubs don’t waste money on decor or carpeting.

Remember, too, that low prices might tempt us to buy stuff we don’t need.
