I remember those ladies (and the book). Turns out they miscalculated their returns, and so weren't as successful as first thought.

That said, there is some merit to going to see for yourself. I own COST because when I go there the parking lot is a mad-house, the store is packed, and the lines at the registers are long. That's at least enough to get one to look into the business (which also is very good, and they even pay their employees well and give them benefits).
