But Costco currently operates 770 warehouses across the globe, according to the company's latest filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The majority of those warehouses are based in the United States, but the company also has a presence in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Spain, Iceland, and France.
