Case Study: The Joy of Costco: A Treasure Hunt from A to Z

 

BEST SELLERS

 

Media Connect promoted this book with great success during the fall of 2023.  The Joy of Costco is a unique coffee table book starting with a history of Costco.  It then featured fascinating factoids and points of interest about the company in a cleverly designed A to Z format.  After six months in the marketplace, it has already sold close to 50,000 copies and has been covered by a wide range of media including the New York Times, Good Morning America, the Wall Street Journal, Today.com, People, and many other national and local outlets across the country.  See below for a comprehensive listing. In addition, Media Connect provided media coverage during a nationwide tour by the authors that included stops in as many as ten cities, including major coverage in NYC and Seattle where Costco is headquartered.  We also arranged for several book talks at bookstores, libraries, and book festivals.
