2013 World’s Largest Canada Retailers

Updated September 19, 2016

In general, Canadian retailing is gaining on the global retailing stage in terms of the revenue of the largest Canadian retail chains. In the past two years all of the largest Canadian retailers have improved their rankings on the annual Global Powers of Retailing list published by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and STORES Magazine. The increases for the biggest and best Canadian retailers have been slow and steady for the most part, but the trend has definitely been upwards.

In the most recent statistics provided by the Canadian government, retail trade contributed 76.9 billion to Canada’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), surpassing the contribution of wholesale trade, which was $71.1 billion in that same time period (2011). There are approximately 1.8 million people employed by the Canadian retail industry, and employment by electronics and appliance stores has seen the biggest increases, along with employment with non-store (Internet based, for example) retailers.

Canada’s retail industry struggled during the critical December holiday shopping season in 2012, falling 2.1% when compared with same time period in 2011. This could be due to a consumer spending pull back, but it could also have something to do with the growing presence of international retailers, particularly via Internet channels. Of 10 largest Internet shopping sites used by Canadians, only two of them – Chapters/Indigo and The Source – are Canadian retail companies.

Seven of the ten most popular retail shopping websites in Canada are based in the U.S. according to reports by the Huffington Post.

One exception to the slow-and-steady upward trending of Canadian retail companies is home improvement company RONA, which has made a meteoric rise on the global retail rankings, flying past Canadian legacy retail chain Hudson’s Bay Company and the Liquor Control Board in the two years after it first achieved a ranking on the World’s Largest Retailer list.

Between the 2012 and 2013 Global Powers of retailing, RONA rose 47 positions in the World’s Largest Retailing ranks, thanks to some acquisitions in 2010, and a $1.35 billion increase in retail sales.

In that same period there were some significant changes in the global revenue rankings of other Canadian retail chains, although much less dramatic than the RONA rise. Canada’s largest retail chain, Loblaw hypermarkets nudged rose 8 ranking positions in just one year, almost breaking into the Top 30, which is not insignificant. In that same one year period, Canada’s largest grocery store chain. Sobey’s, fell four positions in the global retail ranks, losing ground to Italy’s largest supermarket chain, Coop Italia. To put things into perspective, both Sobey’s and Coop Italia are smaller than H-E-B, which is only #5 on the Largest U.S. Supermarkets ranking list.

Canadian Tire rose 11 positions in the global retail rankings between the 2012 and 2013 Global Powers of Retailing reports. Drugstore and pharmacy chain Katz made the most significant strides in that one-year period as well, rising 25 position in the global retail rankings to become one of the top 150 retail chains in the world.

What follows is a complete list of the largest Canadian retail chains ranked on the 2013 Global Powers of Retailing list. The number next to each company name represents the revenue ranking of the retail company (based on 2011 revenue figures), compared to 250 other world s largest retailers on the Global Powers list.

Biggest and Best Retail Chains in China

Updated September 22, 2016

Getting a strong foothold as a major retail player with the consumers of China is the 21st century gold rush for retailers around the world. The enormity of China s population is attractive enough but coupled with increasing wages and good employment prospects, the frenzy of activity from global retail companies is making China one of the most competitive retail markets on the planet.

Overall, the economic growth in China has been greatly improving and expanding at a time when the U.S. and European economies have been struggling just to maintain stability after the contraction of the Great Recession.

China s economic growth in 2010 was 10.3% and in 2011 was 9.2%, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS). The Chinese Academy of Sciences have predicted an 8.5% increase in economic growth for China in 2012.

For the first time in 2011, there were more Chinese citizens living in China s cities than in its rural areas. This, of course, makes retail customers easier to reach. This might account for the 17.3% year-over-year growth in retail sales in November, 2011 and the 18.1% year-over-year growth in December, 2011.

While China is obviously a fertile retail market for international retailers and global flagship stores. it is also a difficult market because Chinese consumers have demonstrated a preference for and a loyalty to retailers that are native China-based companies. Apparently Made in China doesn t have any derogatory connotations when you live and shop in China. Even so, there aren t many Chinese retail chains that are dominant enough at home or abroad to qualify for the annual World s Largest Retailers List .

What follows is a complete list of the China-based retail chains considered to be among the largest retailers in the world, according to annual revenue. The number in the left column is the global ranking number assigned to the company, based on its sales figures, compared to other top retail organizations worldwide on the 2011 Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and STORES Magazine Global Powers of Retailing List.
