Top 30 Retailers of 2013
Despite the colossal Internet market place of the 21st century, NRF Stores has round up the 100 most successful retailers, and according to the statistics, with the exception of one or two names, they all come in three-dimensional and concrete form (literally). In fact, five of the Top 100 large-format retailers – Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), Target (NYSE:TGT), Costco (NASDAQ:COST), BJ’s Wholesale (NYSE:BJ), and Meijer — generate almost half a trillion dollars in sales; Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Dell Direct (NASDAQ:DELL) — the two e-based only retailers on the Top 100 list – combined generate $38.8 billion in U.S. sales.
In ascending order, here are the Top 30 most successful retailers of the United States. All data is from NRF/Retailers.

BJ’s, a membership-only warehouse club, ranks 30th on our list. It competes mainly with two other major U.S. club-like warehouses, Costco and Sam’s Club (owned by Wal-Mart), and holds an employee team of approximately 23,500.
