Dozens of Kirkland Signature products are being sold on Amazon’s website, according to a new report from Quartz.
Amazon has a storefront for Kirkland Signature, which is Costco’s private brand known for quality and value. Amazon shoppers can browse Kirkland Signature slippers, underwear, plastic wrap, coffee, quinoa and even hair-growth pills. Many of these products are available with Amazon’s Prime two-day delivery option.
The Kirkland Signature products are being sold on Amazon at a premium compared to the prices on Costco’s website. A 2-liter bottle of Kirkland-brand olive oil costs US$22.99 on Amazon, but on Costco it’s priced at $16.99, according to Quartz. Similarly, Kirkland adult dog food retails for $43.99 on Costco’s site, but costs $56.29 on Amazon.
Ironically, in both cases, Amazon prominently displays near the purchase button that it sells its own brands of products for much less; Solimo dog food and AmazonFresh olive oil.
Costco and Amazon weren’t immediately available to comment on whether this is an official partnership between the two retailers.
Meanwhile Costco’s Kirkland Signature brand products are also available on various other retail websites such as Boxed.com and eBay.
