Thirteen retailers joined the ranks of the Top 250 in 2011, all but one—Japan’s Daiso Sangyo—for the first time. As would be expected, most debuted near the bottom of the list, joining the Top 250 by virtue of superior growth. However, the two highest-ranking newcomers are “new” companies that were separated from their former parent in 2011: Dia, following the spinoff from Carrefour; and E-MART, a South Korean hypermarket retailer spun off from Shinsegae in May 2011.

Lawson, FamilyMart and Esprit were launched into the Top 250 as a result of the new methodology that now includes franchise fees and affiliated wholesale sales as part of “retail revenue.”

All the newcomers except for three based in Japan are emerging market retailers, mostly from the Asia/Pacific region. Retailers based in the UAE, Mexico and Russia complete the list.
