6 Ways Warehouse Stores Get You to Spend Too Much

Like any other retail chain, wholesale stores are designed to encourage us to spend money. Here's how to avoid falling for their tricks of the trade.

1. Ignore ‘warehouse’ decor

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.

Generally, that’s true. Just make sure that rushing to nab something at what you assume is an unbeatable price doesn’t keep you from doing the math. Compare prices.

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