Bangalore: Globalization has affected almost all industries around the world, with companies expanding their operations to different territories other than their country of origin. Hospitality, telecommunications, construction, automotive, entertainment, textile business, food and many other sectors are following the trend. World’s top retail shops are also in the track already, though many others are yet to weave their networks.



According to Deloitte’s report, ‘Global Powers of Retailing’, nearly 60 percent of the world’s top 250 retailers are operating in more than one country; and among those 147 retailers, 115 has their presence in more than one sub-region. Though the retail industry pundits say that the industry still is in stagnation, it is showing much improvement in the last few years; and there is opportunity for growth, especially for the big players.



Here is the list of top 10 retailers across the world ranked by their revenue; of which 8 companies have their operations in more than one country. Let us have a look.

1: The article mentions Target present across US and Canada. Doesn't it make "the no of countries of operation" more than 1. And I am quite sure that it is also present in Australia. It might be a good idea to check the facts before publishing them.
