Costco sells many different types of office chairs for use in reception areas and conference rooms in different working situations. Some chairs offer high backs and ergonomic features, while others contain more simplistic features to reduce cost. A list of store's current office chair inventory is available online at Costco.com, as of 2015.
When visiting Costco.com, users are able to view a category landing page for all of the company's different office chair offerings, which segments chairs into sections according to purpose. For example, one section contains only folding and stacking chairs, meaning that they have solid feet as opposed to wheels and are suitable for use in dining or conference areas. Another section focuses on reception chairs that offer more cushioning and design options. The site segments its desk chairs into several categories, including task chairs, stools and chairs with more lavish features.
Clicking on any of the sections allows the user to view a summary listing of each product matching that description, along with an option to view the full chair inventory at once. Each category section includes an area at the top of the page that features the highest-selling chairs, followed by the inventory listings. It is possible to order results according to price brand and customer rating in both ascending and descending orders. Individual listings include at least one picture of the chair, a description of its main features and any customer ratings. All ratings include a quantitative star ranking and a qualitative written review.
