Wal-Mart is ginormous! / by urbanexus

On July 15, 2009, Ian Ritter posted at his blog a piece entitled Top 100 Retailers, in which he reported on the publication of the Stores Magazine list of top 100 retailers in 2008 .  This list ranks retailers based on gross revenues.  It would be no surprise to many that Wal-Mart tops the gross retail revenue list.  What is surprising, at least to this observer, is that Wal-Mart's revenue is more than five times greater than the second retailer on the list--Kroger.  In fact, Wal-Mart's revenue exceeds the combined revenue of the second through sixth highest grossing retailers on the  Stores Magazine list of top 100 retailers in 2008 .RETAIL - 2009-07-15 - Top 10 Retailers from Stores Magazine's Top 100
