Hot 100 retailers
"There is no question that large, undifferentiated retail is in trouble and has been for some time," says Leon Nicholas, chief insights officer for Kantar Retail, "but the headlines about the closing of American retailing is an overreaction. There is some level of exaggeration." That sums up the picture presented by the 2017 edition of STORES Magazine's Hot 100 Retailers. There is a distinct lack of big-box general merchandise retailers on the chart — no Walmart, no Target, no Costco, no department stores — while there are plenty of businesses that exhibit differentiation in the marketplace, innovative merchandising and an appropriate value proposition for the intended customer base.
