Hot 100 Highlights

Previous Editions


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.
