The list of the world’s Top 100 Retailers has changed very little over the past several years. While Amazon, at rank No 3 this year, has jumped up 4 places up and is now just behind Walmart and Kroger, the nine other retailers in the Top 10 remained pretty much the same.
Five years ago, Amazon was in 11th place while eight of the Top 10 retailers remained the same as this year: Walmart, Kroger, Target, Costco, The Home Depot, Walgreens, CVS and Lowe’s. In 2008, that same eight stalwarts were at the top of the chart while Amazon was ranked at No. 25.
