Top 10 American Retailers In 2012 [CHART]

Chart - Top 10 American Retailers In 2012

The annual STORES Top 100 Retailers report has been issued, showcasing the, well, largest retailers in the US. The list is notable in that it is dominated by brick-and-mortars, with only 2 pure-play e-commerce retailers making the top 100 list. To put that in context, the combined 2012 sales of those 2 online retailers ( at #11 and Dell at #83) was an estimated $38.8 billion, a figure that would put them only in the 9th spot on the list. The top spot of course belongs to Wal-Mart with a massive $328.7 billion in 2012 sales.

After Wal-Mart, there’s a large drop-off to the nation’s second-largest retailer, Kroger, with roughly $92.2 billion in 2012 sales. Target ($72 billion) and Costco ($71 billion) are virtually tied for the third spot, with Home Depot ($66 billion) edging CVS ($63.7 billion) for the 5th position. Read the rest at MarketingCharts.
