"...I'd think that the rapid turns and receiving cash from customers before one has to pay ones vendors would mean that once the store opens its marginal or incremental cash flows would be positive (provided that these kinds of turns happen at the new store location during the opening months..."

Eldrehad,

I may not have been as clear as I should have been (my fault, could have been another post), but what I was essentially asking was if anyone thought about or knew whether a new store did produce the inventory turns necessary to self fund the inventory, etc from the beginning or if those turns built over time (since Costco doesn't really advertise)? I don't know if this information is even out there.

Thanks for the reply
