Supplementary notes

Figures prior to 2019 were taken from previous editions of the publication.
The Top 100 Retailers are ranked by 52/53-week annual retail sales. In almost all instances, sales used to rank companies are for retail activity in the United States only. To arrive at U.S. retail sales figures, a variety of estimation techniques are applied based on publicly disclosed information. For this reason, the figures presented do not always match the companies' official public filing reports. Company revenues from non-retailing operating segments are removed unless otherwise noted; system-wide sales are provided when the operation is a franchise. The rankings eliminate fuel sales at locations designated as having a gasoline/fueling station as its primary business.
