Sol Price (January 23, 1916 – December 14, 2009) was the founder of FedMart and Price Club (since merged into Costco). He is considered a pioneer of the "warehouse store" retail model. He was a 1934 graduate of San Diego State University, and in 1938 earned a law degree from the University of Southern California Law School. Price was admitted to the California Bar in November 1938.
Price Club was merged into Costco in 1993.
I couldn't find the cause of his death.
