Industry publication Retail Dive has named Walmart as its “Retailer of the Year”:
“The sheer scale of Walmart’s business is hard to truly wrap one’s mind around. It has more than 11,300 stores, totaling more than 1.1 billion square feet. (Target, by comparison, has fewer than 2,000 stores.) The company last year made $514.4 billion in revenue. That’s half a trillion dollars and change, about 2.4% of the entire U.S. GDP. It’s nearly equal to the entire GDP of Sweden, and more than four times the GDP of Morocco.”
