Rankings and profiles of the top retailers in France

Our database contains 380 French retailers and chains, which are ranked by turnover in each of the 18 sectors. For each retailer, a detailed profile is available.

The crisis has affected the French economy less heavily than other comparable economies, partly due to a more cautious banking and investment sector, and to a tradition of effective state intervention. The country remains the second largest in Europe after Germany by nominal GDP. It has the highest number of millionaires in the old continent, and it is the world’s 4th wealthiest nation in aggregate household wealth.

As in most countries, major multinational food chains dominate the French retail ranking, with hypermarkets selling in almost any retail sector. The most important French multinational groups are Carrefour, E.Leclerc, ITM Enterprises (Les Mousquetaires), Groupe Auchan, Groupe Casino, and Système U. Carrefour, although it has suffered a significant drop in sales since 2010, remains the largest retailer in France. The other groups have continued to grow.

The table on the right presents the top 10 retailers in France, ranked by turnover value.
