2022 Top 1000 Report
The largest 1,000 ecommerce retailers in North America made more than $1 trillion in online sales in 2021—the highest levels ever seen—as new forms of digital-centered retail took hold even as the pandemic receded.
But while online sales surged to over 67% overall in the two-year period, the longest-lasting gains went to retailers who adapted when shopper preferences evolved continuously as the coronavirus outbreak waxed and waned.
Driving that performance in part was the adoption of new forms of retail fulfillment. Curbside pickup, for example, became an increasingly common offering of retailers that operate stores. Among retail chains in the Top 1000, 55.2% offered curbside pickup of web orders in 2021, up dramatically from 8.4% in 2019.
