Do you ever need to know how many stores a particular retailer has or how fast they are growing? Here are some resources I use frequently:
|Deloitte publishes an annual Global Powers of Retailing, the 2010 version came out in January. The report is available for free download and well worth the read.|
|Stores.org (a publication from NRF) publishes the Top100 and Hot 100 lists annually. both are great free resources.|
|Chain Store Age publishes an annual Top 100 list. The 2009 version is out, and the 2010 should be available soon. It’s well worth the $99 download fee if you’re a shopper marketer.|
|Slightly more of a niche, but TWICE publishes an annual list of the Top CE Retailers (a space I do a lot of work in). It’s $125 to download the digital version. The 2010 version came out in May.|
|Dealerscope magazine provides a list of the Top 101 CE Retailers, and lets you download it for free. the 2010 version came out in March.|
I used to have an intern compile the data from all 5 of these lists in a single excel file (we even loaded it in our CRM system).
Does anyone have any other favorite resources?
