 KIRKLAND, Wash., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Costco Wholesale Corp. (NASDAQ: COST) today reported sales of $560 million for the four weeks ended April 11, 1993, an increase of 12 percent from $499 million in the same four-week period of the prior fiscal year. On a comparable warehouse basis, that is warehouses open at least a year, sales during this four-week period increased 1 percent over the prior year's levels. Sales results during this year's four-week period reflect 27 selling days compared to 28 selling days last year because of Easter being a week earlier this year.
