The retailer said same-store sales rose 16%, including a 13.9% rise for U.S. comparable-store sales. Online sales jumped 57.7%, it said.

The five-week retail month had one fewer shopping day than last year’s due to a calendar shift for the Easter holiday, Costco said.

Costco last month reported that February sales rose 15% to $14.05 billion.

Also in March, the retailer reported fiscal second-quarter earnings below Wall Street expectations, due in part to higher wages amid the pandemic.

Costco has been one of the beneficiaries of a pandemic-fueled stockpiling, but its expenses have also increased and foot traffic in its stores has been a concern.

The stock has gained 18% in the past 12 months, compared with gains of around 53% for the S&P 500 index
