Do I enter Home Depot, Lowe's HD supply, etc, as vendors?

We have a concrete business. We run to Lowe's, Home Depot, HD Supply, Costco, the post office and various other tools/supply stores on a daily basis. Do I enter them as vendors? We never pay cash for those, it's always on a card (debit or credit).

We do not charge the client for what we buy, we just need the supplies/tools to perform the job at hand. Some of those tools/supplies may be used for other projects, but that's not always the case. Therefore, we can't really add them to a specific job. 

When I say "Costco" I mean we buy water for the guys, for example, so I know that is a different type of expense than the tools/supplies, but do I still enter Costco as a vendor?

Sorry I sound confused, I am.

Yes, you would still list these people as vendors.  Usually anyone you have to pay money to as an expense to do business can be considered a vendor.
