Top 100 World Retailers 2018

Want to Earn from Amazon’s success along with 2 million other people?

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.

What is the reason its only Amazon that is leapfrogging its way up the Top 100 while the other big names are also blazing new trails.? Read about that in my post on Amazon – How Far from being The Big Daddy of Retail? For now, lets take a look at the Top 100 Retailers in 2018 here
