Hot retailers come in a lot of flavors, but one thing the upper echelon of the 2015 STORES Hot 100 Retailers have in common is that they all do things a little differently.

As part of this year’s Hot 100, STORES Magazine takes a deep dive into several retail segments. These highlights also show 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.
