STORES Magazine’s annual list of Hot 100 Retailers is a ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing retailers by year-over-year domestic sales growth.

Hot retailers come in all sizes and formats. Nine of the 10 top businesses represent different retail segments, indicating that growth owes more to management and strategy than any kind of tide lifting boats in any particular category.

STORES Magazine takes a deep dive into several retail segments, including the fastest-growing restaurants and the consistently hot companies that have appeared on the list every year.

U.S. sales include 50 States and District of Columbia; sales in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam have been estimated and removed if reported as part of the U.S. business segment for that company.

All retail sales estimates exclude wholesale and non-retail services (not sold at store), but include online retail sales.

Fuel sales are included, except where revenues of fuel exceed 50 percent of average store revenues; in this case, sales are reported exclusive of fuel sales.

All figures are estimates based on Kantar Retail research and company reports.
