Walmart Remains The Largest U.S. Retailer

Walmart often is seen as losing out to Amazon, especially in terms of share price and broad subscriber base. But there’s one metric where Walmart still commands a large lead over Amazon — sales revenue. A recent STORES Magazine Top Retailers list put Walmart in the No. 1 spot with $387.66 billion in annual U.S. sales and 5,263 stores.

Amazon, with some 100 million Prime subscribers, ranks second with revenue totaling $120.93 billion, and roughly 490 stores in the U.S., most of which are Amazon’s Whole Foods locations. Kantar, which compiled the report, notes Amazon is easily the most disruptive and influential force in the U.S. retail industry, but it’s still nowhere in Walmart’s league when it comes to store locations and sales revenue.     MORE
