Walmart Still Kickin Ass in Retail – Butt – Dollar Stores Gaining Ground

104 0

Retailers will always be measured by sales numbers, and ranking the leaders is important even though 55 year-old Walmart is the 800 pound gorilla. However, the nation’s largest retailers are posting strong vitals. They’re embracing creative disruption, reinventing physical stores as places for brand experiences and exploring new ways to connect with the consumer. 

All of the Top 10 stores in the Top 100 list published in the July issue of STORES are the same as last year, and the order of the top four remains the same: perpetual No. 1 Wal-Mart followed by Kroger, Costco and The Home Depot.

Coming in at No. 5 is CVS Caremark, moving up from No. 7 last year, followed by No. 6 Walgreens Boots Alliance (down from No. 5), No. 7 Amazon (up from No. 8), No. 8 Target (down from No. 6), No. 9 Lowe’s (up from No. 10) and No. 10 Albertsons (down from No. 9).
All but Target showed sales growth, with Amazon’s rise attributed to investments in apparel, groceries and mass market.

Other noticeable changes included the success of dollar stores, where revenues have grown drastically over the last year. Dollar General (previously No. 22) edged into the Top 20 for the first time after seeing an 8.5% increase in revenue.
