There are various ways to determine the “top” retailers in the United States, such as based on sale volume or annual sales growth. Another way is by the total number of stores.
The chart below, with data compiled by the National Retail Federation, shows the retailers with the most retail stores in the United States. The list is dominated by high-turnover stores. [Please note: Number of locations and sales revenue are two totally different measures. Walmart has by far the greatest annual sales volume, yet it is not on this list for number of store locations.]
