Retail chain enterprises

The total retail sales of the leading 100 retail chain operators in China reached nearly 2.4 trillion yuan in 2018, growing at a rate of almost eight percent annually. The same 100 retail chain enterprises accounted for around 6.3 percent of the total national retail sales in the country, a much smaller proportion than in the early 2000s.
Among all retail chain types, convenience stores recorded the best results in terms of sales growth and new store openings. Hypermarket and supermarket chain sales grew at a much slower rate in comparison.
