Major retailers in Europe, their rankings and their profiles

Retail-Index is the most complete, up-to-date and user-friendly online database which lists both internet- and traditional retailers in Europe. All the major retail sectors (18 in total) are represented, such as food, DIY & gardening, fashion, consumer electronics and others. The complete database contains more than 9000 retail chains with 1.9 million individual stores.

The database is a highly practical and unique source of information because it displays clear rankings and profiles. These hold key data on national and international retail chains in every European country as well as several major countries elsewhere. Every retailer is presented in profile-form which, amongst others, features the name and the address of the headquarters, contact details, information about its management (CEO), turnover development, banners, number of stores, websites and webshops. We also present ranked lists per country based on recent turnover data to provide a clear overview of the different companies, their revenue and current number of shops.

Retail-Index can be accessed by means of a 1 year subscription without automatic renewal. On top of this you will also receive an Excel file containing all the information requested and paid for.
