Costco stops re-stocking Coca-Cola

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

(WFLX) - You won't find Coca-Cola products, like Diet Coke or Sprite, at Costco. That's because the warehouse club stopped re-stocking the soft drink over a price dispute.

Costco says Coca-Cola hasn't provided the retailer with competitive pricing to pass along to its members.

Coca-Cola said, in a statement, it won't comment on ongoing negotiations, but it said Costco is an important customer and that it is committed to working with it "in a spirit of fairness".

The dispute affects seven Coke brands, along with Dasani Water, Vitamin Water and several energy drinks.
