2022 Next 1000 Report
Generally speaking, online retailers performed better in 2021 if they weren’t among the largest in their space. North America’s leading small- to medium-sized online retailers posted year-over-year web sales growth of 22.8% in 2021—higher than their 19.9% web sales growth in 2020.
The Next 1000 retailers, ranked 1,001-2,000 by web sales, invested heavily in omnichannel this past year and reaped the benefits of expanding their customer service. 60.2% of Next 1000 retail chains offered buy online, pickup in stores (BOPIS) to entice shoppers and successfully compete with giants like Walmart and Target.
