Costco's Impact On Surveillance?

Like many of you, when I go to local stores and shops, I check out what type of surveillance they are using. I am increasingly noticing a lot of Lorex at small / independent businesses. I have to believe this is coming via the local Costco that features Lorex kits.

When Flir acquired Lorex a few months ago, they disclosed that they sold 500,000+ cameras in 2012. That's quite a lot, especially since it likely came from sales / users deploying an average of a few cameras each.

I am wondering what your experiences are? Are you seeing a lot of uptake of kits from warehouse / super stores like Costco, Sam's Club, etc.?
