U.S. Supermarkets - Statistics & Facts

According to the latest figures, supermarkets in the United States generated about 582.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2015. Unlike traditional supermarkets, which typically sold grocery items only, many supermarkets have begun combining with department stores, creating an expansive retail facility known as a hypermarket. In 2015, the leading supermarket in the United States was a hypermarket: Kroger.

In 2015, supermarkets in the United States generated, on average, weekly sales of about 328,390 U.S. dollars, which works out to about 31,275 U.S. dollars per checkout, per week.

There is much debate about whether or not supermarkets are good for the economy, especially within rural areas. The high volume throughput of these conglomerates, which allows them to sell retail at lower prices than traditional corner stores, has caused many small businesses to close and in turn causes dramatic implications on local infrastructure. Nonetheless, supermarkets in the United States play a very significant role within the economy.
