Costco Wholesale Corp. e-commerce sales surged in May 106 per cent while comparable sales in Canada rose 4.9 per cent and 9.2 per cent in the U.S.

Across the company, same-store sales increased 5.4 per cent. Last month, Costco reported that April sales had fallen 1.8% as skyrocketing e-commerce sales -- a rise of nearly 86 per cent in April -- didn't make up for a drop in foot traffic at its stores due to stay-at-home orders, social distancing restrictions and closures related to the coronavirus pandemic.

Costco also reported fiscal third quarter results last month that saw pandemic costss cut into earnings.
