10 Biggest Retail Companies

10 Biggest Retail Companies

The top three retail corporations on the list are WMT, AMZN, and COST.

Retail businesses focus in selling products or services to customers. Retailers offer a variety of goods such as clothing, jewelry, home goods, small appliances, electronics, groceries, pharmaceuticals, as well as a number of services like tool and equipment rentals. Consumer expenditure, which comprises nearly two-thirds of U.S. economic activity, includes retail sales volume.

Retail businesses have typically sold their goods and services through physical locations, such as supermarkets, convenience stores, warehouses, department stores, and other venues. Nonetheless, a growing number of shops are selling products online via websites, online marketplaces, and mobile applications.

The top 10 retail companies by 12-month trailing (TTM) revenue are listed below. Only businesses that trade publicly in the United States or Canada, directly or via ADRs, are included on this list. The 12-month trailing data may be older than it is for companies that report quarterly because some companies outside of the US report profits semi-annually instead of quarterly. The information is provided by YCharts.com.
