The Top 100 Retailers are ranked by 52/53-week annual retail sales. In almost all instances, sales used to rank companies are for retail activity in the United States only; footnotes are provided when this is not the case. To arrive at U.S. retail sales figures, a variety of estimation techniques are applied based on publicly disclosed information. For this reason, the figures presented do not always match the companies' official public filing reports.

Company revenues from non-retailing operating segments are removed unless otherwise noted; system-wide sales are provided when the operation is a franchise.

In keeping with the methodology used in previous years, the rankings eliminate fuel sales at locations designated as having a gasoline/fueling station as its primary business.

What constitutes a segment Power Player? Any retailer with 2019 U.S. sales equal to or greater than 10 percent of the sales of the category leader.
