Jet.com, the ecommerce business acquired last year by Walmart for $3.3 billion, will stop offering products from Costco's Kirkland Signature brand, according to a published report.
A company spokeswoman informed Bloomberg, however, that some Kirkland products fulfilled by third-party sellers would still be available on the website.
The decision to discontinue most Kirkland products comes as Walmart’s Sam’s Club division works to lift sales by overhauling its own Member’s Mark brand, consolidating 21 private label lines under that name, adding 300 new products and upgrading twice that number.
Jet.com currently offers hundreds of Member’s Mark products.
P2PI NOTE: Jet had added Walmart private labels to its assortment early this year and, as of June 14, still offered some 200 Kirkland Signature items ranging from spices to dog food and apaprel to bath tissue. See the Private Label section of Costco's profile for more information on the brand.
