As a shopper, warehouse clubs might intimidate you due to their sheer size and selection. But as an investor, there are plenty of good reasons to consider investing not only in warehouse club stocks, but in the real estate operations that house those businesses. Here’s why.

Furthermore, their attractive price points and massive layouts made them a go-to for consumers who wanted to not only stretch their income at a time when the economy was in the dumps but also shop in a manner that promoted social distancing.
